I really hope this is for real, I don't want another false alarm.

 

I started having contractions yesterday afternoon but they were irregular. They continued last night and started waking me up this morning. When I got up around 6 and started timing them they were about 10 minutes apart. Now they are closer and I had a little bit of bloody show. Hopefully they'll progress to a baby today!

 

I just took a shower and got dressed so I wasn't timing them during that period but I had several in the shower and while I was getting ready. I called my mom to come up today.

 

My son just left for pre-k crying and my husband was frustrated with him. I hope he comes back calm.

Oh yay! I hope you have a baby today. It is my due date too, and nothing is going on. Just the regular BH I get. Our alarm went off at midnight and my husband tells me he thought it would be funny because it was officially my EDD and it was time to have the baby. Ha, ha...
