OK, so yesterday afternoon I started having timeable contractions- every 11 minutes, but varying in length from about 15-35 seconds. By last night at about 10:00, they were down to every 9 minutes like clockwork. I woke up at 1:04 and they were stronger, and have been consistently stronger till 3:50 every 9 min. Then: what I think was bloody show. I am using pads because of my bladder control issues, and there was a streak of blood on it. Then: a lapse in contractions. WTF??? Now, 25 min later, they have started back up. Definitely painful but I am not feeling any pain in my back. Dang. I have insurance now- it would be awesome to go into labor now. Who knows.... maybe in a few days.
OK, thanks for letting me get that out.
ETA: interesting: the blood in the middle of the night was a streak of blood. No mucous. This morning, I have blood-streaked mucousy discharge and the ctx are back. I am psycho-analyzing.. maybe I shoudl get off this computer and start getting the house ready just in case!
