labor update…

on October 8, 2012

Well… woke up this morning and things had stalled again.  I was still having strong, painful contractions, but nowhere near regularly and certainly not at the 6 minute mark they had hit last night.  We resigned ourselves to another day of walking and trying to get things kickstarted.  Took a short nap around 3pm and woke up to the biggest worst contraction I have felt yet.  I worked on recovering from that one and decided I needed to pee… went to get up and water broke all over the couch!


That was two hours ago, and ever since then I have been leaking water and having painful contractions about 3 min apart.  They hurt like a sonofabitch and all I can do right now is pray they are productive at least!  Midwives are en route to our house and we will see where this goes… but either way, there’s a baby at the end of it all!
