Thinking it's my turn...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking I'm in early labor. Contractions started last night around 5-6 pm and forced myself to go to bed like usual. I had them overnight, waking up a bit with each one, but mostly got rest. I got up this morning and they were still coming. My mom came to get the kids so I can get a little more rest. DH is at work. I have bloody show this morning so I'm pretty certain this is "it" (this was how I knew I was in labor both other kids) I wouldn't be surprised if I don't go into active labor until tonight, though. My body does this slllloooow and that's okay!

DH had the kids all weekend while I rested in bed to fight this cold off. I'm feeling a little better, still not 100%, but better.

Hopefully I'll be posting about a baby by tomorrow!

Good luck!! Hopefully you'll be holding your little one by the end of the day. Get as much rest as you can and hopefully you'll be feeling better by then.

good luck mama! I had a nasty cold when I had ds best thing I did was close my eyes and rest in the middle of each contraction well I forced myself to so I had the energy to push and energy when it came to transition! Now why wont my contractions pick up and give me a baby!

Sloooooow going. Being patient. I'm still having contractions, but pretty far spaced. They are brutal when I have them, though. DH and I just had some uh, alone time, and dinner and are going for a short walk. Kids are with my mom but we need to make a decision soon about whether they are going to stay there for the night. I do think it will pick up when my body is ready... LOTS of bloody show today.
