I think I'm in labor!

early still..but I had contractions last night got kind of intense...went away at 5am...started up again at 8 kind of intense and have been slowly and steadily getting stronger.

think good thoughts for me...I can't take much more of these contractions without having a dang baby at the end.

i'm getting hopeful...I'm having to stop whatever I do and just breathe...

and I've found myself wanting to bend forward during the worst contractions...I'm not sure why as they (knock on wood!) seem to all be in my belly...

Sounds like you are making progress. What helped me most once they got painful was getting in the hot shower. Good luck!

And maybe your boys will suddenly get really tired and want to nap so you can labor in some peace.

Quick update for you ladies! Jami is in L&D, she will most likely get to stay as she is 4cm dilated, 70% effaced with a bulging bag of waters. I will keep updating as I get updates for you all!

Looks like it may be baby day!!
