About to have a baby

Well my water broke about 10 minutes ago. I guess my cervix is just a lip on one side now. hmmm. this is different. Haven't really been in pain yet. Kinda scared of the next big contraction but feeling REALLY lucky to have dilated this far with no big pain.

May be my last chance to update till baby is out. Isn't my hospital cool that it has internet access?

Ok. here comes that big contraction. Going to focus now. Yeah. bye

I'm impressed that you are this far into labor without pain meds and still able to gather your thoughts enough to let us all know where you're at in your labor process. That's awesome you've done it natural! Good luck and congratulations!

I think it's great that you have shared so much of your journey with all of us this last year... I only hope that now you can have private time to smooch on that little man and to relish in the eternal blessings of Heaven. Congrats.

I've been a lurker for a long long time on your blog. You are an inspiration to so many people out there. Congrats on your little boy. I'm glad you haven't been in much pain thus far, and I'm anxiously waiting for an update and a picture of Noble!

Bacardi Mama said...

I'm just like Amanda and Connie. I have followed your blog for awhile and I now feel like I know you, but I don't. Still, my prayers are with you at this blessed time.

I can't believe you are this dedicated to your blog and that you care enough to share this experience with all of us!!! You are amazing! I bet you have a baby now and are blissfully enjoying those first precious moments with him. You sound exactly like me when I had my daughter(#2) the only one I was not induced for and had no epidural for. It was a dream L&D. I remember saying I'm not really in that much pain, it kind of feels like buterflies. My Dr. told me I should have 10 kids. Ha! Thanks for sharing! I can't wait to hear all about it and see pics of baby Noble in the coming days/weeks! ((((Cyber hugs))))

Danielle said...

I've commented before- many months ago but I just wanted to say Good Luck! I am so excited for you! Thanks for keeping us updated- can't wait to see pictures.

In my prayers .....

Oh, by the way, when I commented the other night, I was thinking your due date was the 3rd - I think I predicted 2 days late so that would be the 7th -- TODAY!! I didn't go back & check but no doubt you will when you have time. As an aside, my best friend is visiting from Nova Scotia and today is her daughter's birthday.

With the 4.5 hour time differnce, I just may be in the running :-)

May Heavenly Father bless and protect you all.

Welcome to the world, Morgan Noble Waite!!

lots of love 'n hugs,
kathryn_m

Stephanie said...

Congrats.

Part of me
{the good, caring friend}
is happy for you that the labor so far is seemingly a breeze

and the other part of me
{the one who wishes all misery similar to her own}
hates you for it :)

I'm looking forward to meeting your little boy!

MM said...

Praying for you right now!!!

Amanda said...

Oh, how exciting! I'm so glad you didn't have to be induced. I'm praying and sending all kinds of good thoughts to you and your Noble little man!

The Robinson's said...

YAY!!!! Hope your delivery continues to be a smooth one and little Noble will be here in no time at all. I'm so bummed I missed all the excitment. I was at enrichment and just now got on the computer. Well good luck!!! Can't wait to see pics and the stats!

Plain Jame said...

How exciting - this is totally foreign to me! I go early and the pain is so awful, I am scared for my upcoming delivery of my first boy too ... theres no way I could type while in labor. You're amazing.

Becky said...

Hee, hee, hooo! You can do it! I am so excited for you. I don't know if I am going to be able to sleep now.

Lori said...

Yippee!!!! You are one strong mama. I was pracically dying at 7. This is so exciting. Can't wait to see him.

I discovered your blog through one of my YW leaders and I have read every post, beginning to end, for seven or eight hours now. I cried with you, I laughed with you, and now I'm holding my breath for you as you have your little baby boy. I may be only sixteen years old but I cannot express to you how incredibly touched I am by your strength through the experience of losing sweet Camille. I take such comfort, as I know you do, in knowing that you will be able to raise her in the life to come. I cannot fathom the depth of your emotion, but I did have a taste of grief when my sister was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of nine. We came so close to losing her. To read your story was heartbreaking and also healing for me. My love and prayers go out to your family at this time as you welcome a new baby into your lives. He will not and can never replace Camille, but I hope you derive as much joy as possible from him and your other sweet little girls. Time on this earth is so short in relation to eternity; you will all be together in heaven soon.
