membranes ruptured last night... finally tried blue cohosh and breast pump, and i can officially say that i've been in labor for about an  hour now.  ctxs are getting more intense and really close together (2-3 min i think - not timing though).  woohoo!  heating up the pool water now, hoping this goes fast!  orngbiggrin.gif
