or not! I have been having contractions averaging 10 minutes apart since just after 1am. Already so different from my first birth that started with my water breaking then contractions 3 minutes apart, and already longer, too. We are out of bed now and considering making up my hot RRL tea, but think I will wait until contractions are 5 minutes or so.
At 41+1 I am thrilled to get things going! Please let this be IT!

The update is...there is no update! My contractions went to 5 min apart for about an hour after I posted this morning, we made our calls, had DS picked up and then NOTHING. My contractions slowed to 15 min all day. We have been eating, drinking, and resting. I am considering having our midwife come out after she finishes with her clients today and see what's up...

My son arrived last night:
6:58pm, 7'13", 20"
19hr labor
I won't be winning any awards for a "peaceful" birth, but delivered him at home, as planned. It will be a while before I am up to sitting at my desk...
Best of luck to those moms still waiting!
