I feel much better having got a good nights sleep!

How are all you mommas doing today?
I am glad you got such a good night's sleep, Tara!

I had contractions yesterday evening, and they continued all night (I probably slept through a lot, but every time I woke up, I was having one). Then they have continued this morning! Some are really mild, and some are more serious. I am really hoping it is baby day! This is the longest session of contractions I have had yet.

My doula was going to transfer me to her backup doula on Saturday because she is going on vacation (I would be 2 weeks overdue at that point), but she is switching the transfer to Wednesday night instead because of an important family reason. I LOVE my primary doula, but I feel really confident in the backup too (I actually picked her out), so I am good with the change of plans. But if Baby comes today or tomorrow, I would not be disappointed.
Wife to my supportive DH and WAHM to DD Nora (06/10), DS Emerson (07/12), and baby #5 (due 5/16) and my precious babies in heaven: Bennet (died 8/15 at 12 months) and Lucy (miscarried 7/15).
