Update #2

Sorry, no news. I think this may be my longest labor yet. I was able to relax/sleep for an hour before Ian woke me. I listened to my Hypnobabies scripts and was able to relax thru all the surges. I then slept another hour without listening to the scripts and while each surge did wake me, I was able to relax thru them. I'm going to time them for the next hour or so and see what's going on before I call the midwife. I'm just not sure what to tell her yet!

Any ideas what I can do besides walking to get things moving? There's just no way I can take these 2 rambunctious boys on a walk right now. LOL

YOu could walk stairs in your house, or stuff the boys in a double stroller. NIpple stimulation will help move things along since you've already started laboring, relaxing is the best thing you can do though.. tensing up prolongs things, is someone with you so that you can go take a warm soak in the tub and listen to your hypno tape??

I hope everything goes well for you, Karlise. I am without internet today, so hopefully someone will call me on my cell if there is any news. Good luck!

I am so excited for you Karlise!!! There is NOTHING like having a baby girl after 2 boys!!! She will melt your heart the second you see her. Like I have said before, I never liked pink... having 2 boys and NOW it is my favorite color!

Good Luck, Your in my prayers!!! Hope it isn't much longer!!!

I was thinking the same thing Lindsey..lol! Hopefully you're having really good contractions and can't sit down to type or you've already left for the birth center. Thinking of you!
