<p>Started having contractions the afternoon of my due date (yesterday, the 5th) and they're still going.  I'm getting to where I have to stop what I'm doing and breathe through them.  I think I'll be calling the doula soon but I'm not sure when I want to head up to the hospital.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Will update.  Good Luck everyone!</p>

<p>Well I was having contractions every 2 minutes so we went up to the hospital just to get things checked out.  Still having them every 2 minutes but I was only at 3.5 cm so they sent me home to walk around.  I haven't walked yet but I've eaten, tried to take a nap (think I got a half hour in) and took a shower.  Contractions keep moving from my back to my thighs.  I think I prefer the thighs because the back massage thing we bought works better there.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Assuming these contractions cause progress I think we'll be having a baby sometime later today.</p>
