Now that you're with me, I'm never alone

I have been stuck in early labor for over a week now. My lamb is not lying in a good position - he's not able to put enough pressure on my cervix to dilate me properly. I am doing my "spinning babies" exercises, and sometimes he turns, but he always goes back very quickly. We've tried every way we know to coax him out, to no avail. 

So I've decided to just sit back and relax and let him do his thing. This is out of my control. I have to wait for him. In the meantime, I will play happy music and dance around the house with him. Just as I will when he is finally in my arms. 

By my midwifes calendar he still has 3 weeks before I need to be induced, but of course we hope it won't come to that. 

Our home is ready for our little lamb. The birth pool is set up, his clothing and diapers are all washed, and his first outfit is picked out - a blue gray footed sleeper with airplanes. 

The rest is up to you, Liam Lamb.
