I wasn't expecting baby so early. I woke around 2:30 to really painful contractions. They are still pretty spaced 5-7 minutes apart so it will probably be a while. I am a little nervous about how strong and painful they are. They didn't start like that with my other two. The pain is really low and wraps around the back a little and I feel lots of pressure. Wish me easy labor vibes. I guess this is it.

Update: Cora Frances has arrived unexpectedly at home. My friend who was going to be my doula showed up right before my contractions became unbearable and before I knew it I ran to the bathroom pushing baby out. I wanted a natural birth but was a little shocked it happen so fast like it did. We ended up going to the hospital afterwards for a few hours and I wish I just stayed home but I wasn't prepared for the cord or for how fast it happenend. She was 7 pounds 10 ounces and healthy.
