    Glad to hear that baby is doing well! I hope you caught that nap.

    Nap yesterday was great.

    So... I woke up to contractions this morning. First was at 6am, then another half an hour later, then eight minutes later.... at which point I told DH if I had another I'd get up, eat, and see where it all went. I did have another, but not for another 30 min, and nothing since then. Whew.
    I never had real contrax before labor with the others, so this is new to me. And I know my body likes to start things in the morning. I'm glad it fizzled out and I hope it doesn't become a daily routine!

    I had that happen the other night. It last until 2 am. Then nothing for 2 days. LOL I haven't ever went into labor on my own so this is all new for me too. I am a doula too which makes me feel like I should know more about what to expect, but I am kinda scared actually. LOL

    Water broke 3:24am ET. Looks like baby doesn't feel like waiting! No contractions yet. Waiting for a call back from the MW.
    Drinking juice and going to have some toast with jam as an early breakfast. Then hopefully get more sleep.

    4:15am: I take it back. mild labor contrax 10 min apart. going to try to sleep more.

    6:00am: 8-10 min and very tolerable. resting and eating. I'm going in when they're 5min apart. If I post updates the other May mommies are welcome to copy them over to the May BB. Once I'm at the hosp I probably won't update because I'll be busy.

    7:30am: 4 hours in and still just gentle, early labor. I have found myself taunting my body "Ha! You call that a contractions? What a wimp! Come on... show me what you can really do!" I'm sure my tone will change soon.

    8am: seem to be spacing out some. Drat. Come on, body!

    I think DH and I might go for a walk. If that doesn't work I might try some nipple stim. Or just nap.
