    back home and waiting for contractions. They're willing to give me until tomorrow morning to go into labor! Time for a snack, and a walk, and a nap.

    Any thoughts on why baby is quiet? Resting up before greeting the world? Maybe you should rest up too! Big changes coming up!

    I think babies can sense when it's time. Weston didn't move around much once labor got started. It kind of freaked me out but my midwife kept reassuring me that he sounded fine. Do you have a breast pump? After your nap, you might try pumping to see if that gets things moving. Sending you tons of ELVS!!!!

    Still waiting. I might try the pump. I'm not sure why my body doesn't like to go into labor after my water breaks. It's really weird. The walk definitely helped him move lower, so we'll see. I like the MW on today/tonight and the one on tomorrow. Induction is tentatively 8:30am tomorrow, so at least they'll let me get a full night's sleep!

    AAAAAAAAH! ELVs! Come on out, baby.. the wait is over!

    Faye got pretty quiet toward the end too. She moved a couple of times during labor and it was REALLY uncomfortable...I think it's normal to slow down in preparation. Glad you got some peace of mind though. GOOD LUCK!

    Just catching up. How exciting that things are happening or ... have happened?

    Lots of ELV's if you are being induced right now! Can't wait to hear how you and baby are doing!
