She just texted me, and is pretty sure she is in labor! Her mom, husband and midwife are on their way right now! I will try to keep everyone updated as she or her husband update me! What an exciting day!!!

They are timing contractions. Her fluids are intact but she is losing mucus plug.

I thought she might be b/c of her description of the "BH" she was having.

Another mini-update!


"I think I am still in early labor but contractions still coming." ~Crafty

Her mom and husband are there with her, but she is waiting until she is closer for her midwife to be there. She says it is peacefull this way.

"Not scared with my people here and feeling excited and READY!" ~Crafty

I am so excited for her!!! I did pass along all ELV's and well wishes.

She is doing good, and is going to try to get some sleep. She said hopefully she sill wake up in "hard labor".

I'm going to try and get some sleep as well, but if anything changes I will update ASAP. G'nite all.
