Hi mamas! Hope all is well with you all. Contractions began at 9pm this evening ...waiting it out. Will probably have a baby in the am.

How's everyone else?


It's now the 24th at 10:30 EST...STILL having contractions and not yet in active labor. Since Thurs night at 9 they've been about 5min apart and not very strong. Dr. checked me Monday morning - I was 3cm then. Don't know what I am now. There have been a couple of times where the contractions seem to go away for a few hours. There have also been a couple times where they were more like 3 min apart for several hours. The waiting is KILLING me (in an anxious way...they are not painful).
Went to a cocktail party last night...have been toting my 14mo old trying to jump start things... Thanks for the vibes and prayers. Please keep them coming and I'll certainly update when I can.

Lisa
