I started having good strong rushes about 10 hours ago - and now they are coming pretty steadily at about 9 minutes apart. Give or take.<br>
I think today could be the day!<br><br>
I can't decide what to do with myself. Clean - try to sleep - walk the dogs - eat - or not eat....<br><br>
Hope everyone is enjoying their day - and the mommas with still-full bellies I hope you are drinking your rasberry leaf and keeping positive.<br><br>
Now accepting positive vibrations for our little Maitreya Xen.<br>
Whoooo-hooooo...ow ow ow...whooo hooooooo

Well, more will come later....<br><br>
But....after 46.5 hrs of labor I finally birthed a beautiful, alert little boy, completly naturally... He is quite content during the days but last night he didn't sleep more than 20 minutes at a stretch. So, he and I spent most of the night in the rocker - nursing and getting used to eachother's presence....<br><br>
I did need to get an episiotomy - his heart rate would drop drastically every time I tried to push himthe rest of the way out. We found later that his umbilical was so short that it couldn't quite reach all the way - and was therefore causing the heart rate to drop. His umbilical stopped pulsing as soon as he was born - but, he was in perfect health and a had a great disposition as soon as he was out.<br><br>
I'll have a better fuller story later - with pictures.....I'm so crazy in love with him - Maitreya Xen Lotus is here!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:
