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

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