I was on the phone with my mom and the minute I sat down in the chair my water broke! It gushed everywhere. Went to the bathroom and had lots of mucus, slightly pink. I'm still dumping what feels like buckets of water. No contractions yet though.

Going to eat dinner the try to rest for a bit. I only got about 5 hrs of sleep last night and none today.

These contractions have been kicking my rear end. They've been pretty much 3 mins or less apart since around 10 and its 1 now. Got in the tub to see if it would help- it did but very minimally- next time I'm renting a birthing pool. I thought our tub would be big/deep enough- I was so wrong! I'm trying really hard not to fear transition because I know it'll make it worse... but I'm a little concerned about how much worse it could get.

In both of my labors, I found that when I couldn't take it anymore, I was almost done.  It's so hard not to fear.  Those feelings are normal.

 

You're doing great mama

Horrorific birth experience. Had to transfer. Ended up with csection after 20 hours of labor and contraction but no Progress. Baby's heart tones were going haywire. It's been 3 hours and I still haven't held her.she has to stay in the nursery 12 hours. I want my baby.
