love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
yes we’re in it.
we’re riding out early labor and waiting for the transition to active to hit. i can tell it’s kinda close. each contraction is taking her breath away but she’s still lucid though can’t really talk. they are still holding out at 5 minutes apart, lasting 1.5-2 minutes long.
i guess i better hurry up this blanket!!
Eta: it’s 8:30 in the morning and the midwife sent us home about 2hours ago with instructions to drink wine and sleep. We tried patron instead and it was okay but A didn’t feel rested enough. So I pulled out the Ethiopian honey wine and she is snoring between contractions and not fighting them when they come. Progress!
