Wildcat is on his way!!

As I sit here and type, I am in labor! I've been contracting consistently since about 2am, and it's now after 8am, so about 6 hours total. It started out as back labor and still is mostly, but a heated rice bag and sitting still helps with that a lot. As long as I'm sitting and have the heat, it doesn't hurt so bad. When I am up and walking, they get more frequent and more intense. I talked to the midwife almost an hour ago, and she should be here anytime. We're settled in at my parents' house ready to get the show on the road. I'm betting it'll be sometime between 1pm and 3:30pm. Wish us luck!
