Good Morning Ladies!!!

It's 4 am here.. I've been tossing & turning all night. This last time I woke up I think I started having mild contractions. I don't know though... it's frustrating. To me, it just feels like mild period cramps, but my midwife says that's what they feel like. And this time they are coming and going- before they were always steady cramping. (I don't know???)

Well, I sure hope this Full Moon gives someone thier baby!! I may be anticipating it too much for it to happen to me.

4 am here now, i've been tossing and turning all night, too!

past couple days i've had "very mild period like" cramping after not having any sort of noticeable BH contrax since 18-22 weeks or so, so i keep hoping something's gonna happen but no plug/no water breaking/no intensification... just waiting.. tick, tick, tick...

but you've lost your plug, right? so maybe it will be soon for you! :

Contrax over here but that is not anything new for me! No plug loss or anything like that! I really hope she decides to come today, I worked out some emotional issues I was having and feel in a much better place emotionally today!

It's almost 6am here but I've been up since 4am. I also tossed and turned all night and had cramping all night. We had a storm here in the Phoenix area which I hope added to the power of the full moon! I also managed to do another "thing" with DH last night that is supposed to help labor along. My c-section is scheduled for Friday but the doctor is still willing to try VBAC with me if I go into labor before then. I wish us all the best in the next 24 hours!

I had BH contractions last night that woke me up at about 1:30am. Now I've continued to have them all morning. The wierd thing is these are totally painless--just lots of pressure (not like the ones I had last weekend that I thought were the beginning of labor--back ache/menstrual like cramps/slightly painful). Who knows what is going on...

I have lost some of my plug, but no bloody show, just a bit of goop. Sounds like lots of women shared my experiences last night!!

Good luck MOmmas

Funny, I had cramping and contractions starting around 2am! I was really hoping something was happening, BUT I obviously fell back to sleep and nothing else has happened today.

They definitely weren't regular BH cx, as I'm far too familiar with those, these were cx and period cramping. Ah well. Hopefully the real deal will start SOON. Please baby, SOOOOOON.
