Woke up with a little bit of bloody show and mild ctx 7 min apart, they have gotten more intense and frequent, though still irregularly spaced. We have filled the tub and notified our team. I like to give birth at night, so I an consciously and I am sure unconsciously as well holding out for after the boys are in bed. I can't wait to meet this baby!
Will update as I feel able.

UPDATE: Baby John Bear born at home into the birth tub at 1:06 am, a robust 10#, 9oz, and 21 inches. We are elated!

Yay!! Congrats!!

I also like to give birth at night, and I think my labor slowed for that reason as well.

oh my goodness....John Bear? I LOVE IT!!!! What a darling! Congratulations, and happy babymooning!

(My labor also seemed to wait until the kids were in bed... funny how we do that!)
