I'm NatureLady's birth buddy and she just texted to say that she lost her mucus plug around 8:45pm tonight!

Her contractions started at 3-5 minutes apart but have spread out to 5-10 minutes apart. Right now she is chilling at home with her doula watching the movie Up! She will keep me updated and I will make sure to let you all know how it is going!

Oh wow! Did she change midwives?!? If not, hopefully the original one is much more gentle and responsive in birth than in appointments!

I've sent her another text but haven't heard anything else from her. I'm really hoping it is because she has delivered a beautiful healthy baby and just can't look away!

I promise to keep you all updated when I can!

UPDATE! NatureLady had a beautiful baby boy!

Her text:
"William was born at 11:10am after 13 hours of labour and 50 minutes of pushing! It was a drug free birth and he weighs 6 lbs and 14 oz. Breastfeeding like a champ! Very small tear that required 2 stitches. More birth story later! I'm in love. "
