Okay, so I just got up from a nap with DD. It's been one of those days where I could not get in the bed soon enough. I was crampy and my back was uncomfortable. So about an hour and a half into the nap (3:30ish), I got up to pee and noticed my underwear were wet, but it didn't smell like pee. Then when we were finished for the afternoon (just before 5:00), I started to get up and noticed another little gush, along with mucous tinged with blood - just a little. So I think something is definitely occuring! I really wanted May, but if this baby wants to come now, it's okay. I'm 38 weeks today! Woo Hoo! On a side note: I'm loving my dh's comfy boxer briefs! Figured they might be a little more absorbant. Hee hee...

Yeah, everytime I get up to do something, I feel a little gush! My whole body feels electric. I REALLY wanted May, but now that it comes down to it, I don't care so much. DH doesn't seem too excited, b/c he wanted May too, but I think it's because we're not completely ready. We only have a few more things to pick up for our UC, which he will do tonight. He may just be a little shocked and everything is hitting him at once. I dunno. I AM SO EXCITED. Not a bit nervous and completely at PEACE! I'll keep updating as long as I can!

With DD, I had bloody show and lost my mucous plug at 6:30 in the morning and leaked all day. We went to the hospital to get checked at 11:30 at night. They were worried about infection, so forced the pit at 6:30 that next morning. By 9:30 am, I was in really active labor. I had her at 4:09 pm. I'm really curious to see how this is going to play out!

Thanks Ladies for all the encouragement and easy labor vibes

Well, I've been running like crazy trying to prepare, b/c I really thought it would be May. I'm still leaking little gushes of fluid every so often. My back is a little uncomfortable, but no contractions so far. Maybe I'm having them, but not feeling anything?! Wouldn't that be nice! I just put dinner in the oven and now I get a break! I'm hoping things will speed up and I won't just leak fluid forever. Now that things are mostly in order, I AM READY! : ) I also prepared a huge pitcher of pregnacy tea with honey. It's so YUMMY! Thanks everybody for your thoughts and prayers! I feel so blessed and honored to be doing this again! I'll check back later... This electricity coursing through my body is something else!!! Ciao for now!

Yep, labor is definitely imminent! I just had a big chunk of mucous and blood sink to the bottom of the toilet. Wow, sounds pretty gross, but hey, labor isn't usually too glamorous! I'm having contractions, but they're still very sporadic. I'm gonna chug my tea and chill for now. Later... : )
