So I started having contractions a couple hours ago at 10 min apart. They are now 7-8 min apart and pretty darn strong. And I feel like I have suddenly become bi-polar!
Send me labor vibes please! She would most likely be born on Fathers Day! How awesome!

Will update!

Well, after a couple hours of ctx at 6 min apart, I took a shower and it kinda fizzled out....
I tried to get back on here to update, but for some reason my computer refused to recognize my router, and I couldn't get it fixed till tonight.

She is still in my belly. I'm having contractions on and off (nothing new), but they are getting stronger and more painful. But they aren't on a pattern. I don't know, I really thought last night was it.

I have decided not to say "i think this is it" again till she is crowning...

Oh well. Off to bed to try to sleep....

Thanks for the well wishes mamas. Sorry I don't have a happier update...

Thanks, I'm gonna try. These ctx keep me up though, or if I fall asleep they wake me up. I feel terrible for mamas who go to 42 weeks, I'm only at 40w1d and I'm already losing my mind! I'm actually considering castor oil, but I know if she isn't ready to come out then it won't work. Trying to be patient....

: I hope your ctx are productive, and moving things along whether it seems like it or not! And I hope you can get some rest soon, if nothing else.

So sorry! I had 18 days of those kind of contractions and they suck! I know you can get emotionally drained from them (and physically too!). Take care!!

Well, still the same. Still hanging on. Baby seems happy in there, so I'm just waiting on her. Thanks for the thoughts. Will keep updating.
