This is definitely it.

We are managing to doze a bit between contractions. Sitting up in a padded rocker is the only comfy way I can rest, and I have to pace slowly to make it through the contractions - absolutely NO leaning, laying, sitting on the yoga ball, etc. I am hoping to make it to 7am when Mom should arrive to care for Pequita - so far Homestead Mama has been able to nurse her back to sleep when she stirs. Thank goodness we have the baby we have. She should sleep til the troops get here.

I hope that Manito/a is making his/her way gracefully into the world as I write this. I wish you the best of luck (and drugs, if you choose!). Welcome to the world, Manito/a.

MOnito/a.... sorry about that, baby. Here you are, not even quite here yet and I am already misspelling your name! Mispelling? Oh, someone get me a drink!

I'm going to take this opportunity to say welcome, baby, and thanks Homestead Mama for writing so eloquently about so many different things. I "know" you from the IVF board and started reading your blog a few months ago. I hope you had a wonderful labor and delivery and it all went exactly as you hoped it would. And I hope you still have time to blog after baby number two makes its appearance!
