Pretty sure baby will be here soon. Whenever I have 'real' contractions I can never figure out how on earth I wondered whether BHs were real! Ctx are 7ish minutes apart, somewhat intense, and I am losing my plug.

I find it interesting that I go into labor the day some very serious and would-have-been-very-bad things were resolved in my and dh's favor.

And of course as soon as I post this labor will stop right?

Contractions are somewhat erratic in spacing, but definitely intensifying. I keep reminding myself I CAN do this! I feel like this is going to be my longest labor yet.

Good morning! Just didn't want to read and not post. I have no idea the answer to your question, because I don't know if I've ever even had BH!

Good morning!

It wasn't really a question, more of a sarcastic comment to myself I guess. A few nights ago I was having a lot of BHs and I was wondering "is this it?" Now that it is "it" I can't believe I wonder about BHs.

Things have space out some. My MW suggested some maneuvers to help positioning.

Thanks! It's getting a little tougher here. 3-6 minutes apart and intense. My guess is 3ish cms. Maybe more. But I can feel the head and amniotic sac. So neat!
