WOOHOO!!! This is it ladies!
I am in labor. Woke up at 5 with contractions and by the time I timed them at 6 they were already 2 minutes apart. Right now I am mildly uncomfortable so I am sure there is a ways to go but having never done this before, who knows?
Unfortunately, I have to labor alone which I didn't want cause my dh works nights and JUST got home from work at 6:30 so I want him to get some rest since this could be a long day.
Wish me a short, endurable labor!!!
