24+ hours bloody show
Went to bed @ 830pm after a day of sporadic but very labor-y contractions (read, ow ow ow)
Current pattern:
228, 241, 315, 324, 334, 342, 348, 354
I'll check in with the midwife at 430am if things keep up.
I had DH writing down contractions but he only wants to sleep and laying down through contractions is a no go.

He wants to sleep? Get his bum UP! Yay for you mama! That's 2 Sept mamas in go mode this morning! Let's hope it's a good trend.

ELV! Happy birthing!

It hurt, a lot. No rainbows and unicorns here people. Contractions never got closer than 6 minutes apart, which the MW found disconcerting. They were seriously concerned about FTP, but then I was pushing. HA!

Henry was born at home at 1120A, 20 inches, 7# 15oz. No tears, just a little skin tear she said 1st degree on my 2nd degree scar from my last birth. 2 skid marks.

Otherwise, real sore. Surprisingly to me, my belly is super sore. I'm binding with a belly bandit I was loaned, and it helps. I'm down to 10 pounds over my pp weight which makes me happy and peeing a ton. Ha ha. He's a champ nurser, but lots of nipple stim during labor so the nips are a bit sore.

Thanks ladies.
