I think Baby will be here within an hour or two. Just hold her in your thoughts. She is so precious and beautiful! I wish I were with her this morning. Our mom is there, along with her wonderful DH and midwife.


Jean, happy HS mom to Peter (5), Daniel (9) and Lucie (2) and also someone new... baby.gif

AWESOME! She just texted 1/2 an hour ago. She has been in active labor since 330!

I also stalled at 4 for a few hours. Then in one hour, went from a 4 to a 7! It sucks, but it's totally normal to have lulls. Take a small break, like a shower, nap, anything and it will start again.
