I thought I might have been losing some for a few days... but today I am sure of it!

oh thank goodness... some sign of visible change! :

I wont be pregnant forever!!! I wont!! woohoo! this baby will actually leave my womb at some time!

(granted I totally this means nothing time-wise, but having all those contractions with no "signs" of progress gets depressing! I'm just happy for any type of sing of progress.)

Well I'm pretty sure I can post so long as I don't ask for any advice. So, do not give me any advice heh

(I wouldn't mind letting people know I think I'm in labour, so I hope that's ok. hmm... )

i'm laboring over some accounting documents, does that count? then we could be in labor together.

though, i am asking for professional assistance, so it's not a UPAB (unassisted purchase of business).

Yay! I have to admit to coming on the UC board a couple times to see whether you'd had your baby . Happy laboring (no advice! )

OH MY! I feel like I have a cheering squad! you guys are awesome.

no baby yet. still pregnant. still losing some mucous here and there. and I feel pressure that's sorta different. not worse at all... just slightly different. (hard to explain)

I want to have this baby before May!! like um... by 10-ish tonight works for me, for instance

ok so some news (not the BIG news!!) just some news...

my husband checked me and as he put it - he can easily stretch me to fit four fingers. and when I felt (which is hard b/c my belly is too big to reach over) I could feel the very very thin membrane that's left, the bag of waters and the baby's head. it was like hardly a thing between my fingers and the head!

so I'm thrilled with this! for so long it was like I was stuck. and i know this doesn't mean I will have a baby tonight - but just knowing those contractions were actually doing something other than keeping me up all night and causing me senseless pain is very encouraging to me! woohoo!
