Well, I'm sitting here at 2:30 am with major gushing! Father-in-law is on his way from about 60 miles away to take care of DS, and then we're going to head in to the hospital to check on stuff. I'm 36 weeks, 3 days...yikes! I thought I was ready, but I can't stop shaking! This is the same pattern as last time, water breaking and then a slow start to contractions. Had kind of hoped to spend more time laboring before the water broke, but baby has other ideas. I know I could/should probably stay at home longer, and I'm a little worried about them impressing a timetable on me now, but wish me luck, mamas! I'm hoping my body knows what it wants and will let everyone know that right up front. Probably you'll hear from me in a couple of days with some (I hope) wonderful news! I feel sort of worried right now, but part of that has to be that it's the middle of the night and I'm kind of taken by surprise...

Well, peace in my heart. I think I'll read through some of the mantra thread before going to pack my bag. Some light contrax now starting across my lower back, a good sign. I'd like to avoid the pitocin boost this time, if possible!

Wow! I just missed your post last night. I was up at the same time and even checked the board. I thought I was either in labor or had caught the flu. Feel fine this morning though. Maybe I had sympathetic labor for you! I hope it all goes (or went?) smoothly.
