Lighthearted and occasionally sarcastic sharing of my experiences with infertility, baby-raising after infertility and life after losing a parent.

It keeps going . . . . and going . . . .
Yup, I'm still contracting. 4 minutes apart. I'm quite uncomfortable - tons of back labor/pain. They are stronger, but not strong enough to go to the hospital yet. I have been trying to use the hypnobirthing techniques, but there are 2 problems so far: 1) I'm on day 4 of these contractions - it isn't like I can sit and "relax" for 4 days straight; 2) I didn't count on the back labor - it is hard to find a position that is sufficiently comfortable for relaxing. I called the midwives to talk about this, because I don't think I can keep on doing this without end. We are going in tomorrow at 8:15 to check my progress and see what the next steps are. I think I will be crying hysterically if they don't tell me I've been making progress.
I'm an attorney and policy consultant, and DH is a consultant to nonprofit organizations. We met at a Superbowl Party in 2005, got engaged the following year, and we were married in November 2006. We had a long and rocky road before finally welcoming our first baby, Micah, into this world on December 14, 2008.
