Wish me luck ladies, I think this is it! (stopping to breathe thru contrax!)
Woke up an hour ago with hard contractions and bloody show, surges are 3-6 minutes apart and regular. Went thru something like this last night, but the surges weren't nearly this strong so I'm hoping we're in it! Yippee! I might get a baby this weekend! Letting DH sleep for awhile, now just relishing the peace and quiet and working on the baby's quilt... I'm so excited, I'll try to keep you posted! Thanks so much for hanging in there with me , mamas!

Just an update, still no baby, hard contractions have continued thru the day, albeit erratically. MW thinks they'll crank back up and regular during the night and we may get to meet our little sprout tomorrow! God, I hope so! Thanks for all your good wishes! I'll take 'em all!

Happy, busy mama of 2 - A (9/05) and W (2/08)

Labored hard thru the night last night, this morning the contrax are waning again. Ugh! This is so hard physically and emotionally. I appreciate all your warm wishes, ladies!

Hope your baby comes soon! I know its very difficult...in some ways however its alot gentler on your body to labour like that.

My labour was 2 hours and I feel like I was run over by a rig...

There are no words to describe how frustrating those last days and hours of pregnancy are, especially when you are being teased with early labor on and off.

Soon you will be looking into your baby's eyes for the first time and nothing that came before that moment will matter one bit.

Definitely rest as much as you can. Stay hydrated and fed.

We are with you!!!
