Honestly her already being here would have been best for DH. But if he gets through tonight's flight he can get a waiver to do the TDY without being done with his current phase. Also my SIL is free to get Aiden as soon as I call, but can't really take him before labor yet since she can only get so much time off. Though since she has the long holiday off maybe I'll see about her taking him Friday or Saturday. Interesting thought. I honestly haven't been too worked up over aiden bc he's been such a great distraction for me and has kept me way more active. Just at some points frustrates me as any toddler would. Ha ha.
Im doing hypnobabies. Says not to listen to the birth first stage ahead of time. Maybe I should after the fear cleansing? Any inputs from other hypnobabies moms?

Don't get excited ladies, but I've had more BHs tonight than I've had this past week combined! Something tells me they'll go away when I lay down tonight. lol.
I popped in here to see how you were doing.. I hope you start getting more contractions soon.. I just wanted to mention, acupressure. My cousin is a massage therapist and does these on women who would like to start contracting.. She has a great success rate. I think within 24 hours 3 of the women she did went into labor.. Just wanted to mention it.. Maybe you can try it, if your up for it..

Don't be! I haven't even gone to bed yet and I haven't noticed one in at least 30 minutes already. lol
Hey Jackie! Just got caught up on your lodge again... sounds like things are moving in the right direction! Yay for spotting! With my DD I went from spotting to plug to baby in 13 hours. With DS, I woke up at 9am having contractions which never really got intense until late in the afternoon, and he was born at 9:06 that night. So yeah, like everyone else said, it could happen very quickly once it starts and early signs are not necessary!
I don't know, if I were you I would be SO torn on whether I wanted baby to arrive NOW or after T-day. I mean, Thanksgiving is just my ultimate fave holiday. Such a tough call. Getting to enjoy it would be great, but, of course, it's not like you wouldn't enjoy having a baby in arms.
Maybe that spotting and the BHs led to something and you're in labor NOW?

Eh. We'll see. Just very sporadic BHs. But still not a normal thing for me since I usually don't notice them. lol. DH still isn't home from work. I'm hoping the Kohl's site starts working soon so I can knock out my parents' Christmas gifts tonight.
Oh, BH are good. And stop shopping and go to bed so you can relax and bring on that labor that always likes to start when you finally get cozy!
I didn't listen to the birth first stage before I was in active labor with Odin. But with Archer I started listening to that track while I was sick in bed with the flu, maybe even a day before when I first started feeling crampy with BH here and there. I say go for it. You are totally full term and its not a problem if it brings on labor I though it was really nice to actually listen to it over and over and hear what it said because I couldn't recall a thing it said from listening during Odin's birth but I do remember what it said from this last time.
yeah, like Joy said you are full term + so no worries about listening to that track now! So I'd do a fear release then the early labor track!
Come on Zoe!!!!!!!!! I hope you are planning on a quick 5-8 hour arrival so that mommy can have a great birth!
Woo I'm so excited about your contractions! Even if they were to go away overnight, the fact that they're standing out to you when you normally don't have them is a great sign. I went to bed feeling contractions but nothing different with DD and woke up with my water broken. You never know! I hope the early labor track for HB helps if you've listened to it, and that Kohls site was cooperative.
