My friend is in early labor. We're at the dad's house (sort of a surrogacy situation here) and she's and dad are both resting. This will be baby number 8 for her. I'm looking at the inflatable kiddie pool that will be filled with water when she's ready. This will be my 4th birth of hers that I've been at. I'm super excited to see this little girl enter the world!

Her contractions were 5 minutes apart and picking up a bit in intensity, so the midwife suggested she try to get some rest, so she's been in the bedroom for an hour. I think I'm going to go check on her soon here.

Dang it! She went to lay down and her contractions totally petered out. We're trying to get things going again, though. Lots of curb walking and we'll be doing stairs in a few minutes here.

Is she not able to just nap and wait till they start on thier own? I don't understand trying to coax it too hard.
