This time the contractions are five minutes apart. The midwives are here. The doula is making lunch for Mr. TeaElle. My mother in law is in a cab from the airport and my mother is making preparations to fly up tonight. The birthing tub is filled, and I’ll be getting into it as soon as I click submit. Instead of a protein bar, I’m using a protein shake to fuel up for the work ahead.
In short, it’s birthin’ time, folks, and BabyTeaElle 2: Electric Babyloo should be here soon. Like, within hours. This one is happening fast. Contractions only started about 90 minutes ago.
Depending, either the Mr. or myself will check in later with the news.
Wow – really fast, contractions are now about four minutes apart. I think I’d better go have this baby!
