Well, I have gone the gammet today, nice regular contractions, pausing for a bit of a nap, then no contractions, then regular contractions, and now virtually nothing again. Ugh...... I really thought I was making progress, but for now things are fairly quiet. We're going to get Gracie into bed and then see where things go from there. Hopefully we will have to head to the hospital before morning, but I really don't know......

Hey, Baby! Get out already!

I'm sorry you're on this roller coaster! The good news is that things ARE happening. Get something good to eat and sleep well. Your birth will be great as soon as your body and your baby are ready.

Me too Alice. Gawd... I can't get you and your impending labor out of my head...I even dream about typing and reading your posts! It's silly but I just really care that you and your baby are doing good and that you have the labor you want.(I guess that's not silly is it?).Anywho I wish you the best(again)! Angela

Thanks everyone, you guys are awesome!!!

I am having contractions again, but nothing that seems too life altering. I sent my MIL home and James to work, I figure I may accomplish more with no one around waiting for me to "perform"!! I have an appointment this morning at 9:45, so we'll see where things are then.

I had a very, very long labor with Gracie (42 hours) and ended up with a c/s, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised that this is also taking a long time. At least this time my water hasn't broken so the doctors won't be concerned about that aspect!!!

I'll let you all know if and when things change, thanks so much for the good thoughts!!!
