A chronicle since 2005 of my marriage & move to Brooklyn in my twenties; becoming a mother in my thirties; moving to Pennsylvania and learning to amicably coparent after divorce in my forties while living 3 doors down from my ex-husband in a small country town.

I Think I Might Be Pooping

I’m like, “Dude, the nurse just said I’m dilated to a ten” and there he was rushing around the room adjusting the lighting, pulling blinds, jimmying with the computer. I think at one point he rearranged a pile of magazines and slid a chair a couple inches to the right, as if that would make his birthing experience complete.
Next week: pushing. But for now, the last few minutes before Henry was born. It's what I'm babbling about today.
