Baby?

Contractions still about 10-12 minutes apart, for about 2 hours now. Moderately strong, lasting about 50 seconds.

Maybe baby?

Just watching Happy Gilmore with DH. LOL. I should maybe try to go to bed but if these keep up I won't be getting any sleep. I did have lots of mucousy discharge today, and had a good bowel movement, so my body is definitely getting ready even if these peter out.

I'm glad to hear things are moving along. Trying to sleep might be a good idea....even if you just rest a little it will be good.

Maybe I should mow my lawn tomorrow. Wink

It's 3 am now. Still going on, although I did get a few hours rest, as best I could between contractions. Stopped timing a couple hours ago, so I'm going to start again now and see how far apart. Pretty painful, hopefully closer together.

Bloody discharge after a contraction just now, fair amount. Here's hoping for a June 7th birthday!

Sooooo exciting Sandra!! I'll seriously freak out for you (in a good way) if you go into labor on your own! :vibes: :vibes: :vibes: And in the very least, these have GOT to be progressing you!

ETA: WOOHOO bloody show! :woohoo:

10 minutes apart for the last hour, lasting a good 60 seconds.

Super painful, but I am a huge wimp! I wish they would get closer, but also it would be nice for DH to get a good sleep. Maybe by 8 am things will have picked up.

sounds promising! I had random contractions last night... 15 mins apart, then 20, then 10, then 7 then 15. etc. but they are getting stronger. I am hoping they do something but not at school today (or at least not with the kids in the room!) I slept ok and don't know if I just wasnt feeling them/was that tired or htey stopped. they started up again when I got up.

hope yours do something for you!

5:30 am.

Still coming. It's been 9 hours of consistent contrax, and these puppies HURT. Pretty sure it's baby day! Even if I have a 24 hour labour, that's still today! Yahoo

Oh Sandra, super exciting!! Smile

If you're a "wimp" LOL, maybe don't wait as long as I did to head in though... I remember telling DH that I was ready for my epidural when we were getting in the car for our HOUR long ride to the birth center (where they don't give epis!!! LOL). Yeah, it was a fun ride... Wink I'm guessing I probably went from about a 5 to a 9 in the car.

So excited! Yahoo doing it on your own is so rewarding! My first two were late and induced after prodromal labour, then Evie was more active prodromal than the boys and she came with out being induced. It was reassuring to me to know that my body CAN do it! Smile

I agree with Chelle...was looking at calendar dates last night and thought 6/7/13 would be a cool birthday. Smile
