Started having some pretty intense contractions around 4:30 pm yesterday but not very regular. Went to sleep and they must've died down in intensity as I was able to fall asleep. Early this morning at 1 am I woke up to go to the bathroom to pee. After I got up, I felt a bunch of warm fluid that just kept coming out. Checked it and it was clear with no odor, so I think it was my water breaking/leaking. Had to grab my postpartum cloth, which I leaked through 3 of them within a few hours, as well as leaking through 3 infant prefolds. Contractions died down and I was able to sleep a bit. Got up around 5:30 am and still was leaking although not as much.

Started to have more intense contractions around 11:30 am today. I just now started to time them and they are coming 4-5 minutes apart and lasting 40-60 seconds. Will continue to monitor them for awhile longer before we decide to leave for the hospital.
