Please send me good vibes and happy thoughts!!!

Contractions started at 11:30 pm, just as I was about to go to bed.. (figures : ) They are 3-5 min apart but only last 30 seconds so far.

They are too intense to sleep through, so around 3:00 am I got out of bed and saw that I am losing some nice bloody-streaked chunks of my plug.

After 4 bouts of false labor, this has to be it.

I just finished setting up the bathroom and am SO EXCITED!!!

Andrea

I'm right there with you!!!! My contractions have been on and off for several days, but last night they were STRONG and about 6-8 minutes apart (some just 5 minutes) and lasting about 50 seconds. I lost my mucus plug this morning. HAPPY BIRTHING! I'll be thinking of you!
