Another update

Change of plans. Just as we were walking out the door, I mean, literally walking out the door, Jeff tried the water one more time and it worked. It was unfrozen. Talk about God's providence.

Sweet Ashlea took the kids over to Mimi's anyway and now I have some quiet time.

My contractions, unfortunately have slowed down.

My labors are usually really long. I haven't had one shorter than 12 hours, and that was with pitocin. So this could go on for another day or two.

I feel pretty sure I'm in labor, even though the contractions have slowed down. Hopefully they will pick back up in the next little bit. That or I'll get a really good nights sleep and start all over tomorrow...and really, either is fine with me!

I'm looking for labor massage (legs) that speed up labor and keep drinking those herbal tea!
