My water definitely broke about 2 hrs ago...mild contractions have started. I should be trying to sleep but I'm up cleaning and doing laundry because my brain is just too active right now.

UPDATE: Baby River was born at home at 10:25 this morning (11/4)! He weighs 7lbs, 8oz and looks exactly like his big brother did.

Easy labor vibes to you!

I did the same (cleaning, organizing, etc.) when my water broke with ds2 at 2am. Fortunately (?) my labour didn't start for 40 hrs so the excitement wore off and I got to sleep the next night.

Have a great birth!!!!

Nothing's really happening...contractions are mild and infrequent. I did manage to get a few hours of good sleep last night. I think I'm going to call the mw in a bit to let her know what's going on.

Still not in any kind of active labor...though the contractions are starting to pick up in intensity (though they're still very infrequent). Also, the little bit of fluid that I am leaking from time to time has started to become pink-tinged. Hopefully the beginning of some bloody show.

I did about a month's worth of nesting in one day!! I'm pretty impressed if I do say so myself. Hopefully, now that my to do list is done and my LO will be in bed in less than 2 hours, instinct will kick in and the show will begin!!
