Its feeling like the beginning of this labor gig for real this time.  I've had a TON of bloody show/mucus over the past 3 days, along with ctx that started and stopped- soooo frustrating- and never got anywhere.  This afternoon I had this big emotional breakdown and told dh that I needed to get out of the house.  He could sense how frustrated I was so we fed the kids, called grandma over, and headed out to lunch.  While we were out walking around whole foods I had several big, stop-you-in-your-tracks kind of ctx.  When we got home I tried to lie down but they have just kept coming since then, about every 5 min.  On MDC now trying to stay distracted. 

 

Keeping my fingers crossed that this is the real deal this time.  Not sure how much more of this I can take.
