Lost mucus/bloody show today after a really long walk. Cramping and contracting a lot of the afternoon, and then started having forceful poops (LMAO) toward evening. After dinner I noticed some contractions starting to come a bit closer. I started feeling nauseated and flushed along with the constant poops. By 8 pm, I was feeling regular contractions. By 9 pm, calling my midwife and doula for a heads up. I tried to go to bed, by DH was all worried and tossing and turning. I finally came on the couch and could doze a bit between. They are sill about 6 min apart so I'm sitting upright for a little while to see what that does. I don't particularly want to be up all night, and my instinct is telling me that laying down isn't doing much good.

Anyway... if this isn't it, it's just one darn good practice session! Please think of us as we go through this journey.

I've been laboring since last night. It's not particulary hard labor, but tiring just the same. Thankfully I've been able to sleep, eat, drink all day long. I hope they kick into gear tonight. I've had a lot of bloody show so I know that these are doing something, just not sure exactly why my body has chosen to do it so slowly.

I'll take this over my first labor, though.
