No, I am not sleeping. Contractions are now 5-6 minutes apart and there is no way I can sleep through them.

Midwives arrived. Never met them before tonight. They are very nice, but make Dawn nervous. I have sent the midwives to the kitchen and they are being very cooperative. Dawn is on the birth ball and is feeling well although her contractions are getting stronger and are about 3 1/2 minutes apart. She is using the TENS machine. We don't know if it helps, but she keeps using it. Dawn requested banana bread and it is in the oven now. The house smells wonderful!*edit* - By Caleb 1:40am
Dawn has had her banana bread and has now moved from the birth ball into the pool. Midwives are hovering. I'm thinking about asking them to head for the kitchen again. Dawn seems to be doing well. Shouldn't be long, but we'll see. Contractions are very strong. Maybe I'll just have to let the midwives stay.

Things slowed down a little after getting into the water. Dawn likes the chatter. Midwives can stay.
