Not 10 minutes after I was checking out my butt crack to look for "the bottom line" I got up to yell at my hubby and my water broke! So, this is it. No painful contractions yet. Just intense ones. Eeeeeeeek!

Sounds like a good idea. Couldn't hurt, could it?

 

Good luck, mama! Hope it all goes well.

Carrie was talking about it on the chit chat thread yesterday. Its a dark line on your butt that corresponds with how dilated you are. The longer the line the more dilated.

In your crack, jack.  lol.gif  And don't pull apart your cheeks too much, it makes the line disappear a bit.  Just a little PSA.
