Woke up with discomfort. Immediately went into hypnosis and am now in eyes open hypnosis. Discomfort disppeared once I put myself under.

When I went to the girl's room, I noticed just more plug. I thought "sigh." Then I noticed blood!

Dang, I've never been so happy to see blood and feel nauseous in my life!!!!

It's 3:35 am EST now.

I fed and watered the cat and did some light last-min nesting. As in my birth visualization, I'm not waking DH until I must. I'm going back to bed to nap, put myself into deep hypnosis, and listen to hypnosis cds.

Will keep you posted.

I wish I had more to report -- like a baby for instance! :LOL

Am having strong surges and had more bloody show throughout the day. I haven't timed anything. Intuitively, I feel like it's too early to time. So, I've been going about my day...wrapped a gift for DH's bday (which is tomorrow!), worked from home, and mopped the floors. I even snuck out to buy a cake for DH's bday.

It's a little nutso how good the cleaning makes me feel. I know nothing will get done for a month (at least!) after the girl arrives so better to do it now!

Sometimes I have to stop what I'm doing and breathe through a surge. They still aren't consistent though.

I guess I cld be like this for days, huh?

yay! take a nap or two as well, so that you're ready to rock and roll when the time comes.

I can't tell you how many birthing stories (ncluding mine) involve cleaning!

Make sure to take it easy as much as you can, enjoy romantic time with your husband if you can, just let yourself feel magical and special and prepare for a lot of work.

One of the best parts of my labor was in the maternity center jacuzzi, by candle-light, feeling each contraction wash over me like wave, peak, and then recede.
