As I wrote you in PM last night, my water broke yesterday. I'm still not in active , exciting labor, just some desultory contractions. I have a midwife appointment at noon. The midwife on duty last night called me three times to check up on me, which made me feel cared for and reassured--she was not worried that I hadn't gone into active labor. (So glad I took that Strep-B culture so we can be mellow about that!) I'm feeling okay, continuing to leak amniotic fluid at intervals. I had a good night's sleep, a shower and I'm going to eat some breakfast shortly.
I'm a little uncomfortable because of the soreness of my pelvis but otherwise I'm moving around okay. I predicted last night that i would start active labor this morning. Well, maybe later in the day. If worse comes to worst I'll start taking more shots of cohosh tincture! I probably am in some kind of labor, it's just very boring and slow.
