Finally, my water has "broke," or at least sprung a leak. Regardless, labor should start soon, and then baby, and then I won't be pregnant anymore!!!!!!!!!

Your life doesnât change by the man whos elected. If your loved by someone you can't be rejected... decide what to be and go be it! If your a caged bird brake in and demand that somebody free it.

So not much going on yet. I estimate I lost about 1/4 cup of fluid last night. I've been having pretty regular contractions this morning, but of the very not painful variety. I'm sending DH to work and will be spending today getting the house ready for my homebirth!

Contractions started at 6:30 this morning. For the past 2.5 hours they've been at 8-10 minutes, and getting stronger. I think I'm FINALLY in labor.

Of course my midwife is at another birth right now. I just really hope I don't hit active labor until she's done.

Not much of anything. I have semi-regular contractions, it hurts, they stop. I'm trying to avoid paying attnetion until I can't not anymore.

Tomorrow I'll be trying induction by diarrhea. Why yes I'm getting desperate.

"Induction by diarrhea"... is that as much fun as it sounds?

Eh putting off the castor oil until tomorrow or Thursday. Today we're dealing with brownouts in my area, and it just seems like a bad combination.

Have you tried/thought about trying acupuncture? Not that you're probably looking for advice at this stage of the game, but thought I'd mention it. Everyone I know who has tried castor oil has vowed to never do it again . . . not the best review!

Sending lots of spontaneous labor vibes your way!
