About an hour ago I woke up to my water breaking.  Wish me luck!  Oh, and Facebook friends, please DO NOT mention anything on FB.

 

I can't believe this is happening!!!

Thanks ladies.  Contractions started picking up so I got up and ate breakfast and they've since slowed down.  They aren't bad either so I think we're in early labor, but that's okay.  We're going to bake the baby a birthday cake and do my belly cast (since we skipped it last night) as long as I feel up for it.  I couldn't fall back asleep, but I think I rested.  Hopefully baby comes today so I'm not too exhausted going on only 4 hrs sleep.  I lost more plug along with more water so I think things are going in the right direction. 

 

Thanks ladies!!!  I'm so excited.
