Okay, so I'll stop hijacking SummerTwilight's thread. This definitely feels like the real thing. I actually called the midwife a few minutes ago, so she's on standby. I let my daughter go to school, but that was probably a mistake. Dh is probably going to have to go get her in an hour. The contractions are strong, but not outrageous, back pain is getting really uncomfortable. I let the two little ones sleep in. Friday is a good day to have a baby. One of my support people (who is a working mom) has Fridays off. I'm going to take a shower before I get going too much. Wish me luck.
