OMG!!!! I'm taking a nap and then gush, my water breaks. I forgot how much water that can be. So I call my husband, parents, and midwife. My parents and husband are on their way home and my mother sent a friend by to care for me until they get here. No contractions yet. I'm just going to try and relax until they start, take a shower,and my 21 month old is still taking a nap in the dry spot on the bed. So I'm pretty excited right now. Yes!!! I'll update after the baby comes...

***************UPDATE***********

Well I had my little boy!!! It was a long labor and I'm just so happy that things turned out well. Long story short I had to transfer care due to a stalled labor. I mean I was getting contractions maybe every 30 minutes or so. DH and I knew that we needed intervention so we went to the hospital. It was surprisingly still a wonderful birth. God really put some angels there with me because a midwife in the hospital came to attend the birth before the docs could screw with me. It was great! I'll give more details later. I need to take a shower!!!

Thinking of you so much, had to get on here to see if there were any updates. I'm loving picturing you in our pool. It is getting filled up with so many wonderful Mama's energies. I wonder if your little bit will be the first born into the pool?? So exciting!

Just wanted to thank you all for your well wishes and love!!! I'm so happy that things worked out the way they did. This is exactly what a homebirth transfer is about. We weren't the stereotypical "train wreck" that comes into the hospital that the docs get mad about. Baby was happy and handling labor well and so was I. I did need augmentation and some much needed sleep via an epidural, but it totally helped me get around the back labor, relax, and still have a vaginal birth. I thank God for His blessings on my little boy and I.
