38 weeks, 2 days. I've been having fairly consistent contractions (every 10-12 mins) for over 6 hours now. Lost some bloody mucous about an hour ago, and contractions are getting more intense, but not more frequent. Don't want to wake DH yet, so I'm sharing with you ladies smile.gif

Wish me luck!

Was "early" labor for sure. Maybe active labor because by the time I got to the birth center at about 6:00, I was fully dilated/effaced and had already been pushing in the car. Baby Bryce was born at 7:41 this morning in the birth tub! Crazy fast and intense, at least compared to what i was expecting, but great. Will create another post later with story and pics.
