promising signs?????

I woke up at about 315a with a contraction that felt crampy and radiated to my lower back. This went on til about 545ish and they were anywhere from 5-12 mins apart. I also had a couple BMs that were loose. And I had a little pinkish/brownish spotting. The contractions have gotten further apart now but they are still radiating to my lower back and are a crampy feeling. I decided to come into work eventhough the hospital is almost 1 hr away. DH is home with Ds today. It is quiet at work and will be a low stress day, so I will save my days off.

Labor was Ds kinda started this way. Hopefully something is going on. I think the spotting is the best signal!!! I am not going to get get too excited though...

Since they slowed up and spaced out a bit I felt OK coming in. On weekends there aren't too many of us here, but I am sure if it gets bad someone will drive me!!!

I hope this is it. I am beyond tired and miserable!

DH is kinda freaked out (as am I) our neighbors/friends were going to watch Ds when it is go time. HE loves their 6 yr old! But she has strep throat!!! Sad His Mom is 4 hrs away. He is having her come down tomorrow LOL My parents are over an hour away.
