intense contractions kept me awake a large part of the night last night. they were spaced pretty far apart, so i followed my midwife’s advice and just tried to sleep between them. they’ve continued on into this morning, and so the troops have been rallied. the midwives should be here within the hour. i’m ordered to take it easy until they arrive. my contractions are still about 6-8 minutes apart, but they are the familiar fire i suddenly remember so well.
here we go?
