With a big sploosh all over the bathroom floor. It was clear with chunks of vernix in it. So far I've had one big contraction since than. I will keep in touch!!!

Things have slowed down a bit. Contractions have spaced out but are much more painful. We are headed to the acupuncturist and chiropractor hoping to get them going closer again. My midwives are absolutely amazing and I feel no pressure... no one is watching the clock. The baby is doing fabulous and I actually got a bit of sleep between contractions, so I feel energized and ready to do this! Please continue thinking about me!
