We’re on what, day 3 of contractions. First day had a stall as did the subsequent days. Today’s stall was short and the contractions are the most intense they’ve been. We’re at 5cm… so about half way there. We’re really hoping the last half goes much faster. We’ve busted out the birthing tub, filled it with water, and labor in it has been much easier for Crystal. Everyone has been supportive. Nana took the kids out for the second day in a row. It’s a huge help.
I’ve tried to feel better myself. I contracted a virus of sorts which gave me shivers, amazing fatigue, fever, and a horrible sore throat. What timing!
