So I've been having contractions for about 5 hours now. I went to school today and came home before my first class was over. I was having contractions this morning before I left but figured they would just go away but they didn't.
My husband called my mom and is now upstairs packing (but forgot which dresser was for the baby or rather that there was a baby dresser) and being a little frantic. My son is over a friend's house.
I still am not sure if this is for real or not. I am just about 38 weeks give or take a day depending on how you calculate. I haven't had any bloody show or mucous plug loss (although I have had very this mucous over the past few weeks but nothing definitely a plug). My back is very achy.
I had a long labor with my son that started similarly but I was 40+5 when he was born.
I wish I knew for sure. It could still be weeks.
My husband needs to chill out though. He is way too excited and wants answers I can't give him.
