More progression I guess... I don't think this can be because of the exam, because there was no show or anything last night - white discharge, normal for me. Not anymore - hurrah!

So... Without wanting to jump the gun, here's what's happening...

Started having contractions, regular ones, last night. At first I thought it was just my uterus being extra irritable - every time I stood up I seemed to have a contrax. Then I started timing and they were about 6 minutes apart, with a few on the outside.

Went to bed, laying down, relaxing - feeling antsy - still coming 6 minutes apart. Was very tired but could not sleep. About 3/4 of an hour later I did fall asleep, woke up several times to pee. This morning, contrax were back along with - would you believe it - some bloody show! Yay!

They've been pretty much constant since I got up. Around 3-4 minutes apart, some mild, some really awesome! Cervix still a squishy 1-2 but more bloody show. Dunno really - this could take some time! A LONG time maybe, who knows?

But I suppose I'm in early labor, if you will. I mean I think I've had enough contrax now, that I can say it's not really prodromal anymore. Whether it's going to be quick or not, I have no idea.

Anyway I'm REALLY starving so I am making pasta now. Who knows - maybe that'll stall it!? Maybe it'll pick up and get even stronger - no clue. Never done this properly before. I can say though that this feels completely different than Josie's labor with the abruption - this is like muscle squeezing, tightening, baby going down - hers was just really extreme sensations.

Bella is moving well though - seems to be wriggling downward, if that makes any sense...

*HUGE hugs* everyone - send yer labor vibes over here - I want to have this baby! XxXxX

I have no idea if this really is it - if it is, it might take AGES! I mean it's got to be SOMETHING but, well, I'm afraid to jinx it!

Oh gawd this could go on for days though... Seriously I'm just meandering on through the day with contrax about 5 mins apart, varying in intensity. Some of them are really awesome. Others are just like strong BH's. I get the feeling this is going to go on for. A. Very. Long. Time. So - don't get too geared up for a baby announcement anytime in the VERY near future.

Hon, I swear I'm not stalking you, I just saw this on New Posts and couldn't resist - you do realize that what you're saying is almost exactly what I was saying the morning before Luke was born? "Oh, something's happening but it'll probably be a while, there's no way I'm having a baby today/tonight/tomorrow/this week..." Yeah, he was born that night. Have you given R a heads-up?!

Yeah, I've let R know - actually she is coming over and we are going to take some pictures before I get un-pregnant!

I hope I'm like you. So ready to meet this girl!

Can't wait to see the birth announcement! This sounds just like early labor for me when DD was born!
