My mama has been having lovely surges for a couple of days... they seem to be picking up (as is typical) as the sun sets, so I am heading to bed expecting to be awakened in the night to hang out with her for awhile. Last night when I was awakened, I sent them to bed and that was a good thing to do - since she is still contracting 12+ hours later.
Sometimes labor takes its own sweet time.
And that's just fine by me. (Moms need a little more convincing sometimes.)
Good vibes welcome.
