Being in pain never sounded so good...

I seriously cannot wait for labor to start! Every time I have a strong contraction, I'm like "YES!!! Hit me with another one!" But no. Seems like the painful ones are always solitary. I have a serious case of the fizzles. I'm trying not to complain, because my due date isn't even until Monday, but I'm so ready for this baby to come out! MIL comes tomorrow and leaves on July 5th and it would seriously be a bummer if the baby weren't here before she left. She's coming now because I had everyone so convinced the baby would be here by now. Sigh.

OMG!!! Story. Of. My. Life. Ughhh, it is driving me crazy!! I want it to hurt so bad, because I know there will be a surprise at the end, but nope.... I have given up trying. I have walked miles, jumped, DTD, drank tea, ate this and that, and here I am. I have started telling people when they ask that plans have changed and she isn't coming until Sept. Smile I hope your body kicks into gear soon Smile

So I'm thinking it's possible this time it's real? 6 minutes apart and crampy! Waiting just to see if they get longer (only lasting 40 seconds or so right now)/stronger/closer and then I'll probably call the midwife to see if we should go get checked out.

We're at the birth center...not much change dilation wise but having contrax every 4-5 min. DH and I went for a walk around the hospital grounds and they seem to be getting stronger. They are going to check me again in an hour or so, put me back on the monitors and see if things fizzle or pick up. If things hadn't gone from 0-60 with my first in an hour, I would go home and come back. Kinda frustrating.
