Mamas! Babies!

I am so excited today — as excited as someone can be on 1 1/2 hrs. of sleep! Mama #2 gave birth to her baby this morning, the way God intended: out her vagina! I would love to tell the whole detailed story sometime, but suffice it to say God answered my prayers for a redemptive story for this VBAC mom, her husband, and me — all of whom were there the day she gave birth via c-section to her first baby. And her baby is Beautiful.
And as if things weren’t rollercoastery enough already, I heard from another mama — Mama #4, I guess we’ll call her — who wasn’t supposed to give birth for a few more weeks, but due to some health problems is having her labor induced right now. I’m just waiting for the call to join her at the hospital.
Mama #1 and Mama #3 are also still waiting for their babies.
Things are so much out of my control that I’m just waiting to see how it will all be detangled. In God’s mind it’s not tangled at all.
I got two hours of sleep this afternoon and have some black tea brewing. Let’s see if I can make it on that amount of caffeine before I reach my bed again. I’m hoping there will be a little sleep between Mama #4 and the next birth that gets under way. I have a feeling Mama #2, victorious VBAC mama, unplugged the dam.
