First signs or false alarm?… Time will tell

Midwife is on her way over now. I’m having regular contractions about 3 minutes apart. Nothing horribly painful yet but, thankfully it is getting slightly more painful with each one. (Funny how I crave the pain toward the end because it means it’s going to be over soon!)

I’ll let you know what news when she leaves if not before. Prayers are appreciated!

edit (12:41 am) well, i’m in labor, but it’s going slow, so I am going to rest a bit while it is still a few minutes in between. contractions haven’t stopped so I am hopeful to have a baby by sometime tomorrow. ’til then…!
by the way I am LOVING being at home. my big bed and pillows are sooo much more comfy than the hospital smaller-than-twin for one thing. Not to mention being able to blog while in labor. pretty cool so far!

edit (6:55 am) STILL WAITING!! Thanks for the love and prayers. We will let you know as SOON as there is news.

    lot of prayers from here…  i think today is the day.  (hopefully Nicola’s too)  you are brave.  i know the worst pain means will be over soon but i am still horrified by it.  May the Lord keep you strong and bless your family there.

    If you think being home is better during labor, wait until after the baby is born! But there’s no doubt that staying home is also beneficial to those in the “internet waiting room.” Our last two babies have had their first newborn pictures up on (Daddy’s, not mommy’s!) blog even before their cords were cut.

  7. Oh man!,… awesome Sarah! BIg comfy bed midwife at your side…I do admit this is something to covet.Praying all goes well.

  9. Still thinking of you all.  Prayers.

    just checking!  :o)  maybe she doesn’t like the name you picked.  LOL  (that was my excuse for Nella being “late”.  :op)

  20. You need to give hourly updates of dilation and effacement. LOL That’s not too much to ask of a woman in labor, is it?

  21. yuk, don’t do it, Sarah- i think that would be way TMI for a public blog!!

  22. la di da…..wonder if no news is good news???
