So, I saw my midwife for a super quick S&S yesterday am, then went to the Chiro (it felt SO good )..Then we did some other stuff around town (mothercare) and went home. Around 3:00 I started to have pretty regular but un-hurty contractions.. I had been having lots of bloody show and mucous plug bits all day since the S&S.. Then I started to have little gushes of clear fluid (still not sure if its amniotic fluid, but i'm thinking its likely) I called my midwife to update her on my progress and she offered to come check the fluids, but It was bedtime at that point for the LO's so I said I would call her back if anything really changed. No BIG changes, But the contractions havn't stopped since 3 yesterday and have only (slowly but surely) gotten stronger, though farther apart at this point. I was timing them, just for fun, earlier and they were coming at like 2 & 5 minute intervals in clusters and lasting about a minute each.. now it seems like they last more like a minute and a half and are 10 minutes or longer apart.. Im having a TON of bloody show now and still leaking fluids but it doesnt seem so gushy..more just drippy..
I slept for a few hours (went to sleep @ 11) but each contraction wakes me up.. i do have to breathe through them now. Im going to go back to sleep.. its just about 5am.. and try to sleep in.. Then im going to set up the pool and my birth altar...ect.
Im so excited, I think this is finally IT! baby seems very happy...Im doing lots of check in's with him/her and im feeling really happy and content.. no 42 week baby after all! yay!
