I was having contractions last night but they didn't get closer or harder so I went to bed. Was woke up several times with contractions and then decided to get up at 4:30. I checked my cervix and I could still only get one finger and a tip in. I have been contracting all day. They seemed to be getting more steady(about 10 min) but not stronger or longer. Well I checked my cervix again just a little bit ago and I can get 2 fingers in and seperate them. My fingers side by side are 2.5 cm wide. So I'm thinking I might be about 3 cm? And I could feel the fisures in my babys head! I hope everything keeps going! I had a feeling I would have this baby on the 23rd

Oh wow! Keep us posted! But try to relax and ignore it as long as you can. That seems to be the best advice I get on early labor. Eat and get some SLEEP if you can!

How exciting! I can't believe you know how to check your own dilation! Very impressive!

Contractions are getting much closer and stronger. Lots of mucusy discharge and I feel like my pelvis might break.

Well last night at about 9 my contractions started spaceing back out. They were still lasting about a minute but moved from 4-5 min apart to 10-15min apart. We decided to go to bed and get some sleep! My hubby slept well but I woke up around 1:30 stayed up till 3:30 with contractions still but not rythmic. Went back to bed slept till 7:30 and got up. Still haveing minute long contractions but there not rythmic and not as sever as they were. Pretty sure it will be in the next day or so but not last night

Sounds a lot like what I went through with dd3! Very regular prodromal labor 3 days before she was finally born. I'm sure it will be soon!
