"The morning was kind of a blur- just riding the waves of birth and trying to rest between the really intense sensations. I had been up all night with surges getting more and more strong. I was laboring in bed, on the toilet facing backwards and laying my head on folded towels, and the bathtub all night. I was focusing on breathing deep and remembering my positive affirmations. I kept rubbing my belly and talking to my baby telling him how excited I was to meet him soon and that we were doing great."
