I think this is it!

Woke up to contractions this morning... they haven't stopped, are pretty regular... my bowels are emptying at a rapid rate...I'm swaying through contractions.... I've been in touch with my midwife and doula. Smile

LIke I said... I think this is it!

I would certainly appreciate all your "this is it" vibes!!! Smile

So I took a little reading nap (you know where you read like a paragraph, close your eyes for a few minutes, then read another?? repeat, repeat, repeat...). Contractions are getting more painful. Swaying through them for sure. My mom will be here within two hours. Might be calling my midwife/doula again soon... we'll see! I'm trying not to get ahead of myself...but from where I am now to things getting very intense in Beni's birth was not that many hours... So yeah...trying not to get ahead of myself, but, also, want my midwife to get here in time!

Contrax still about 3-4 mins apart but intense..-leaning and swaying and breathing through them.

***above was my last update from Mara! That was a couple hours ago. I would have posted sooner but I was at the Pediatricians then stuck in a rainstorm! I'll let you all know if I get any more texts!
