Labor stalled out around 5am. After 14 hours of regular contractions with the last hours being intense and pretty painful... it fizzled out. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement. I got to sleep about 2 hours, and now my day of bringing Lily to school and household chores have begun. There have been some cervical changes made, baby is a lot lower, cervix is a lot more open and softer... so it wasn't all in vain. I know that if I had been at a hospital that my doctor or midwife would have broken my water and I'd be holding my baby right now. And thats hard to handle. But at the same time, I want ONE birth to be intervention free, and that means surrendering to the fact I am not in control of this.

Thanks for all the ELVs, positive thoughts and prayers... please keep them coming.

Having been in your shoes, I totally understand. When you look back on this (soon!), you will have a much different perspective, and it will be so awesome

It all is for a good reason
