My water broke just before 2am and it's about 13 hours later now and I'm starting to have some ctx!!  I went through the same thing with DD1's birth and ended up getting pitocin at the 8-hour mark because I was having a hospital birth, but this time I'm at home and my midwife is very content to wait and see for a bit.  So here I am, gushing fluid with every contraction (thank goodness for Depends!) and waiting to get into high gear for labor!  DD1 is so excited to meet her little sister, as are we all smile.gif

 

I'm sorry I've been so MIA -- wishing you all the best!!


DD March 2007...happily nursing, EC graduated, family-bed-sharing family... expecting another in early November!
