OMG! I can't believe it actually broke by itself! No hard contractions yet, but I am GBS+ so we will have to head to the hospital sooner than later. I was up from 5 am to 6:30 with hard cntrx, then it stopped. After Sean nursed this am, I had a really hard contrx & heard a pop. Went to the bathroom & saw a bit of the plug and light pink fluid. Came downstairs to tell dh and sat on the birth ball to talk. Suddenly felt a gush. Soaked my jammie shorts. Fluid looks clear so far.

WOO HOO! I'm having a baby!

See ya with Eleanor soon!!!

I'm Deborah, mama to Aidan, 11/02, Sean, 9/04 (my T21 SuperBoy), and Eleanor, 8/08.

Ooo, exciting, : for an easy labor for you that's quick enough to not be tedious but slow enough for you to process.
