Well, my water broke when I got out of bed about 4.5 hours ago. I've been having a lot of contractions the past two days, gradually increasing and have had a few "painful" ones too, but not many. I have developed a crampy lower back and have lower pelvis "pain" with the contractions too. And since Thursday night I've had tailbone and butt discomfort/pain. I think the contractions are starting to pick up now as I've just had to more intense ones in a row sitting here typing. I'm just now timing them to get a sense of where I'm at for now. The past 2 were 6 minutes apart.

We went out to dinner right after my water broke as we were planning too and I tried to ignore it. We got DS to bed and then did a quick clean on the house. I'm feeling pretty chill and am about to go to bed. Just hoping to get some sleep before things really kick in.

I'm excited but trying to stay calm so I can sleep a bit and not have too much adrenaline getting in the way of labor. Hopefully hypnobabies will help me get to sleep.
