Contractions about 3 min apart for 2.5 hours now. Pink/bloody show. Loose BMs all night. Lower backache that radiated to my legs all night. Contrax are super intense when I am standing or walking (puttering around the house). Got the 2 big kids off to school and everyone on standby. I can't believe it's time.... the first thing I said when I had the first BIG contraction this morning (at about 4:50) was "I changed my mind. I don't want to do this lol." Labor amnesia is a wonderful thing.

I'm trying to eat but I feel nauseous when I have a contraction, so it's not working out too well. So far just blowing through them every time they come (when I'm standing as often as 2 min apart).

I'm going to lay down and try to rest.

Bethany, mama to M (9), J (7), S (4), and baby BOY 9/13/10!!

Congrats and best of luck for a quick and easy labor! I'm with ya on the labor amnesia, I also said "Why did I want to do this again?" a few contractions into my labor. Too late to change your mind! It will be so worth it once that sweet boy is in your arms!
