Hi, after many hours of irregular contractions yesterday, I began to have a trickley feeling like beginning your period while trying to sleep. It began like 4 hours ago, at 5 am. It woke me up several times and I still feel it now, lying on my left side. I can feel it coming out of my body and my pad is damp, not soaked, just pretty darn damp. I have not been having any discharge the past week, so that could be starting up again. But do any of you know from experience if...
Melany, she's beautiful. Oh, my!    I am up at 4 am. Been up for an hour. My 23mo had a night terror. Great. It is his second or third one so far. My DS1 had them until he was 10yo so I know the routine. At least, with the baby, I think it is a night terror. Not totally sure as it could possibly be teething or something else, but the inconsolable terrified screaming for 30+ min. and then all of the sudden stopping is suspicious. I am NOT looking forward to dealing...
What are some good snacks to eat while laboring? 
Hi Ladies, I thought it would be fun to share some of our birth dreams as we have babies on the brain. I've been having some intense dreams lately. In one I had a baby girl which was a shock in the dream (I'm expecting a boy) but I was so ecstatic that I cried and just adored her and couldn't believe my luck. But the strangest one I had a few nights ago. I birthed a baby boy with a HUGE nose that was very pliable and squishy. I was so sad for him and tried to roll it up...
Sunshine, you gave me a great idea for a new thread about dreams...
Soooo, I am definitely feeling different today. I've been having some pretty strong irregular contractions with cramping and stomach aches mixed with weaker contractions every so often for the past 4 hours. They are beginning to fizzle out now, but had kind of peaked in intensity like an hour ago and made me consider this actually being early labor, but now I feel like this was just a pretty good practice session. My MW reminded me that I could have this happen a few...
I loved your story, especially all of the details about your birth process and what you were thinking along the way. Thanks for sharing it.
Oh, how exciting!! I am so happy for you Melany! 
37+2 in my junkie painting clothes and baby is in a LOA position right now so my belly feels really tight and hard. Hurray for the good position, baby.     
Lightforest, My baby is ROT too and moves all the time as well. It may be because of your positive attitude that I am also not worrying about it deliberately. I refuse to make myself stressed out. If he flipped back in breech or something, that might be a different story though.    I have enjoyed the discussion of EPO and have decided to take it this time. This is the first time I will be trying it and taking RRL tea. I am also getting frisky with DH every day. I am...
