Well, Ive been having those irregular really painful contractions for 2 days now and they have really been a PITA since I just couldnt tell if I was in labor or not lol.. last night they got pretty bad. I had some really big chunks of mucus plug the other day and then all today every time I go potty, I have more mucus plug and its all blood streaky and nasty (sorry TMI)... Well, since 6:36 this morning, Ive been having contractions.. sometimes 11-16 minutes apart and the past 2 hours MOST of them have been more like 3 minutes apart or so... with a few being 8 min or so.. but 95% of them have been 3 minutes apart.. Im having to stop typing and deal with the contractions.. OMFG they hurt soooo badly... I didnt remember this part of any of my labors lol.. the euphoria afterwards dulls the remembrance of the pain LOL.. but OMG!!!!!! Well, the past 30 min they have been like 2 min. 50 sec apart even LOL.. since starting to type this basically LOL.. Anyways, DH called me from work to tell me about him getting his vasectomy scheduled LOL.. (go figure me in labor and him scheduling his vasectomy lol) and I had like 3 contractions while on the phone with him and I could barely breathe (Im having to work hard to breathe through them) and he told the workers at his job to pack up (hes the lead man) that they are going back to shop to work on duct since Im in labor lol.. so hes coming home since the kids are suffering LOL. they are having to just deal with me while Im dealing with contractions and they arent getting their needs met (you should have seen how long it took me to get lunch ready LOL.. plus I feel like I should be sitting on the toilet or in the tub the entire time and my room isnt babyproofed yet and the other 2 bathrooms arent useable (ones upstairs and we dont have a gate on the upstairs yet.. and one is near the broken door where there is still glass in the door and gate up so its not useable) so I feel like I could deal with the pain better if someone were watching the kids LOL.. and they would be better taken care of.. DH told me to hold off on calling mom (she has a 2.5 hr drive from Orlando to come get the kids but we are afraid to call her away from work and all and waste the gas if this isnt true labor LOL.. but I think it probably is.. I pray it is!!! it hurts so bad it better be!!) Sooo if by the time dh gets home (probably 45 min or an hr!!!) then I will call mom if the contractions are still coming frequently!

Please let this be it!!!
