This is emiLy. I'm standing in my bathtub at this moment, leaking. It's not pee - I've peed twice and it still leaks. My husband is cleaning the bathroom!

On the towel I put between my legs to come downstairs, there's some white stuff. Vernix? or Mucousy type stuff. Just thought y'all would like to know that!

No contractions yet. I'll try to keep you updated.

It looks like LOTS of us are starting to go into labor. Maybe there is something about the full moon. Me next, me next!

I demand frequent updates!

Oh man, this is so exciting. I am living vicariously through all of you that are going into labor right now.

I am definitely in labor! The contractions are 2-4 minutes apart. We called the hospital and thankfully no one else is in the ONE labor/delivery room. There's a girl who is a week overdue, so we were worried. Hopefully she won't run over there because I'm planning on staying home a while.

I feel like I have to pee, but I can't figure out how really. LOL

I'm super gooey. Like I wipe 5 times and it's still gooey. Clear goo.

Wow, good luck! How exciting!
Erm, there's no way you are going to get a chance to answer this, being in labour and all, but how on earth do you manage to use the computer whilst standing in the bathtub? I just can't imagine...:

Err anyway, hope everything goes brilliantly!

She's trying to NOT go to the hospital, unless it's an emergency, so I really hope that you're home Em! And I hope things are progressing for you as well. Oh, and ditto on the typing while standing in the tub.... how DOES one do that?!

I've had these slow leaks and been getting more white cream discharge lately too. Some BX contrax as well. I don't think it means anything. My leak seals up all the time.

henry robert is here!!! 2:35 central time. unassisted birth at home. my husband came in when i screamed "ryan! what is that coming out?!" lol i had been pushing for a while and was getting worried maybe we didn't have a head, but we did! we haven't weighed or measured him yet, he looks about the same size as delia did ( she was 8 5 ). i'm on the couch eating a burger and fries. (oh, i have a laptop so my computer goes about anywhere - it was on the counter by the bathroom sink earlier when i posted.) i will write more with all the details asap and have my husband put up the pictures he's been taking.
