Still Here

It was a long night. Our doula came over around 5ish this morning, but by then my contractions had petered out. She still thinks that we'll have a baby in our arms tonight or tomorrow morning. My dear husband stayed home from work this morning to take care of Fritter for me, so I could catch up on some much needed sleep. I have to say, it's a bit discouraging. Jen (the doula) said my body is just working on effacing some more before it really goes into good labor. So she gave me some black cohosh drops, and also some evening primrose oil capsules to move things along a little. The drops are really, really awful, but if they help, I'm willing.

I plan on resting a little more and then I think Fritter and I are going to go for a walk.
