My baby seems to be coming:updated w/bith story pg2

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
After my confusion yesterday with lots of discharge, overnight I soaked through 2 pads and a prefold. At some point early this morning I started having light ctx but I stayed in bed mostly asleep until 8. Ctx have been coming every 5-7 min and usually lasting close to a minute. They seem to have moved from my lower belly to my lower back. We've got my SIL/doula and my/big-kid-watcher on standby, but so long as I'm doing my usual stuff around the house, we're hanging out and seeing how things go.

I'm in shock that it looks like I'll have a 37 weeker after going 16, then 5 days overdue. I'm trying to figure out if there's anything I HAVE to do before bringing this baby home. Clearly, I haven't fuzzed out into labor-land yet.

Yeah, I'm packing my hospital bag between ctx and discovering that my nursing bras all look nasty. Be more ready than me, ya never know!

I'm still here, contracting every 10 minutes or so. Lots of mucus-goo. It's got to happen this weekend one way or another. I took a walk and a nap.

Oh yes, I'm all over the eat and nap approach. Check and check.
