Things are revving up - am apparently in the 'latent' stage of labour. I'm going to get a bit more sleep. Ma is on her way up, B has cancelled his job for today and tomorrow; and the midwife has just been out to check me over.
Contractions are five minutes apart, lasting 30-40 seconds and starting to take my breath away.
The midwives are happy to come out here - or for us to go down to the birthing pool in Newtown later on if we want to.
