Funny thing is, I came down with a cold yesterday, stuffed nose, sore throat, and had just decided that it would be best if I didn't go early, cause then I could get over the cold first. I think this baby has a sense of humour--he/she also flipped head down about ten minutes (okay, it was ten hours, but still) before my referral to the OB to talk about version! And DH is supposed to go racing today (yes, there's a race car in the garage--well, it's at the track right now, but it's usually in the garage), figuring two weeks before my due date would be perfectly safe to plan to participate an all day event like this!
Okay, if any of my IRL friends read this, can you keep it quiet and to yourselves? I don't want everyone I know getting all excited and calling or anything, in case this goes on for a while!
Dunno what's next on the SROM front (I had ARM with both of my last 2) ... I guess your m/w will have some ideas.
In the meantime (((((((ELVs)))))) for you.
Happily married, busy mom to a houseful :-)
Expecting again early Oct 2014!
I say just sit tight and work with any ctx you're having. Call your mw when you feel things are picking up enough or if you have any questions.
GL and have a beautiful birth!

Thanks everyone. Contractions started almost right away, which kinda surprised me, because I had imagined it would take a while. They're pretty regular now, at 5 or 6 minutes, but I can breath through them. I'm starving, which also rather surprised me! My midwife is currently at the hospital (just across the street) with a homebirth transfer, so she's nearby, but going to send her partner over to check on me in an hour or two.
With DS it was a gush and contractions started right away. I called the mw to give her a heads up as it was 9 pm and then called her again around 6 am to tell her it was time to head on over. I didn't have to do anything to keep the contractions coming with DS and he was born 16 hours after ROM.
Good luck mama and sending tons of ELV to you! :
you have every right to spend time grieving the birth while enjoying your precious little bundle . cant wait to see pix!
