So if you read my post in the daily thread I had irregular contractions all night. They were about 5-7 minutes apart when I was laying down but would disappear when I got up and distracted myself.

Well, this time when I got up (8:30ish) they did not go away! They've been 3-5 minutes apart (I haven't really been timing, I've been cooking to try to get some distraction) for over an hour now.

So I made myself some eggs and toast. After I eat I'll call my midwife and see what she thinks.

(OW! I'm having one right now!

They aren't too painful but they certainly aren't pleasant either. I can still cook and type through them, though. I have a tremendous amount of energy for not having gotten any sleep last night.

Anyway, it might be baby time! Wish me luck!
