I lost my mucus plug yesterday and had steady contractions about 6-8 min apart then it all went away while I had a very fitful night of sleep.....today I went for another brisk walk and drank nearly two quarts of homemade pregnancy tea and this evening the ctx are back holding steady at 5-6 min apart. DH is on his way home from work and the MW has been called on standby....I am hoping this is it~I'll let you know!



come on baby!

well.....lol....I *think* today is the day! Yesterday at my prenatal (hopefully my last this pregnancy) I had my MW check me and I was dialated at a 3-4 and 50% efaced. She said since labor is coming very soon to just take it easy and REST so I did......no power walks, no strong tea, no tincture, just relaxed. I finally got a full nights worth of good sleep for the first night in about 4 nights. This morning I woke up and as I layed there I felt new contracions coming again......I got up and took a bath and had a ton of bloody mucus and now I have just had steady pretty painful contractions....I think they are coming around 5-8 min apart.

So hopefully soon I will be meeting my precious little one!

That is how my labor was! Stripping my membranes and using the breast pump for two 30 minute sessions got labor jump started for me... Good luck!
