think labor is starting...

Hi All. I lost my mucus plug at 9am this morning and am having some contractions now so am really hoping this is it. I just put DD to bed and my parents are on their way over to sleep over so we can leave when we are ready. I am not going into the hospital until I really know it's real (although this already feels way more real than the prodromal labor did). Send good thoughts my way and I will update when I can (hopefully to tell you my birth story).

Hope this is it for you, many ELVs coming your way! Oh and small baby vibes too since you are past that due date. Good Luck.

This is it but it's SLOW! Contractions are getting less than 10 minutes apart and starting to be more intense. Going to go for a walk to try to speed things along. I don't want to go to the hospital until things have really progressed. DD is off with my dad and DH, my mom and I are about to go for a walk (if DH gets out of the shower than is).

ELVs!!! My contractions started out 10 min apart and then completely STOPPED for an hour and my total labor was still only 5 hours long...so it can go fast once it gets going. Good luck!

You won't believe this. I was sent home for no progress again. I am having painful contractions that I cannot talk through but they are not doing anything. At this point I assume I will be having the baby at home since I really won't know when I am actually in labor. On the plus side I will be taking another sleeping pill tonight.
