6:30 a.m. - Melissa is in labor now. She woke me up about 30 minutes ago to tell me she was having real contractions about 10 to 12 minutes apart. They are not about 6 minutes apart. Already called the midwife, Betsy, and she is on her way. Expect her here around 7:45.
7:05 a.m. - Contractions are at about 5 minutes apart with little rest between. The birthing pool is getting filled up. Mitch and Faith are going to go milk in a little while. On a fashion note, Melissa is wearing a "My Son Defends Freedom" Army t-shirt for the birth.
7:43 a.m. - Betsy is here. Labor is really progressing. WIlll blog again with baby here.
