I woke up this morning to a pretty intense contraction. I have been having them for about an hour an half now. They haven't developed much of a pattern but they are intense. My water is still intact and I have not had any bloody show. This feels the same as the start of DS's labor. I had sporatic, intense contractions, by the time the developed enough of a pattern to call the midwife I was already at 10cm and ready to push. The only difference is these ctx are across my abdomen and pubic bone, where last time it was all in my back. Unless I'm in for a looooooong labor today is going to be my baby's birthday!

So who's with me? Who wants to have a baby today?

I'm hoping soon, if not today here too. I worked yesterday & when I got home had regular contractions for at least an hour, but then I went to bed & they went away. Been having them off & on today, but not regular & not painful.

man I'm jealous. I have contractions every night these days, last night even at 4 minute intervals, but I go to bed and they go away. Due on Friday, go baby go! I hope you've had yours by now too!
