Woke up a few hours ago to pee... started having much more painful contractions than before. I'm still not sure but I'm thinking this is labor... I've been having a lot of prodromal activity for weeks now and none of those contractions felt like this. I haven't had any bloody show yet... or anything else to tip me off otherwise, just really have to breathe my way through. I'll keep everybody posted. :)


Nic, loving mama to 5 with a SURPRISE 6th on the way.

My mom is heading over... I'm still not 100% sure but I don't think I will be until the baby is actually crowning. Something is going on. I keep getting the chills every so often but I don't think I'm anywhere near transition yet. Please, please, please let this be it. :fingersx
