Okay, guess I'm not making it to 36 wks, LOL! 4 days shy will have to be close enough. Water broke this morning, contractions here and there but nothing like what I've been having all week and not regular or established yet. Up out of bed now and will start walking and moving around. That will probably get things rolling. Will head into the bc when things are happening more.

Will update later. Unless I get pushy in the next 2 hours, this will be my longest labor ever, LOL!

Update: No baby yet. Water broke, no labor. Still not quite 36 wks, and no signs of infection so we're just sitting tight. Trying not to be impatient, but it's hard, LOL! I am hoping it will happen this week, but we'll see. My MIL is up here and that has been a huge help. She can stay as long as needed and that is amazing. So, all is well, just no news! I will try to get online tomorrow and catch up!

Hope everyone else is doing great!

glad you have help!!! are you trying to bring it on or are you just trying to rest?

My friend's water broke, and the MWs stopped doing internal checks to prevent infection and you don't want to know how long she went it might torture you! LOL. But in your case its probably good since you aren't quite 36 weeks. She went at least 10 days (and that was NOT taking it easy, since she was already to her due date).

Very short update. Will do a good one tomorrow in a new post.

Baby boy - Jeremiah Guy Roberts. 6 lbs 11-1/2 oz. 20" long.

He's perfect (of course!) and we are both doing great. Went 36 weeks on the money. Born underwater at the birthing center. Everything was just as awesome as I could have hoped for.

Home tonight and ready for a little sleep in my own bed!

Will post pictures and stuff tomorrow or Sunday.

Yea!!!
