had been getting "prodromal" contractions every 4 minutes or so, but only lasting 30 seconds, for most of the evening.

finally went and laid down... dozed a little, kept having contractions, after about 30 minutes I felt a weird kick/pop and I think my water broke. Not gushing as much as with Em, but I am definitely leaking and it does not smell like pee.

getting stronger contractions now. phone calls have been made... kind of getting things together, timing contractions, and WOOT once again I'm lucking out that my own dr is on call. heading out as soon as MIL gets here to watch Em, and mom gets here to be my labor coach...

hoping this is really it... if so I'll see ya'll on the flip side

Kelly (28), in love with husband Jason (38) and our awesome babies:  Emma 4/09, and Ozzy 8/10

All that prodromal labor was doing something! Congrats Kelly and welcome baby Ozzy!

So happy for you and your family!

(I was delivered by my dad and a nurse as the dr didn't make it in time and my mom was only in the hospital 20 mins or so after having her water break at home too!)
