My mw discussed with me breaking my water this week. I wasn't 100% sure about it but was so nervous about another big baby and shoulder dystocia-well all of that was sorta a nonconcern since last night I went for a walk with a friend-a normal walk around the neighborhood-no marathon walking here-and now I am in labor. MW said I am about 7 cm right now but no really strong contractions. they went to grab some takeout and will be back soon-so far this is the easiest of the three I never realized how much easier labor is with your water intact because it always broke right off before. well more later I have to get up and move around!

mother, wife, sister, friend--step mom to one grown man and mommy to 3 boys-ages 19, 10 and 4
