So, I've been in labor all day....

I think I'm 38 weeks tomorrow, and I started having contractions around 10 am this morning. I had hubby come home, and they've been pretty inconsistent, but they're definitely there.

They started around 20 minutes apart, went to 12 min apart, then to 8 min, and back to 12. Then I had a couple that were 20 min apart again, but they were strong. I had lost my mucus plug this morning as well.

The time between contractions seems to change when I move around, or start doing things, but they never completely stop. I've been in denial the whole time. I keep thinking they're going to go away, b/c this went on for 2 days with my first, but I keep timing just the same.

We have our bags packed and ready by the door - wish me luck!

    Good luck! Have you seen redcatwave's rec to wash floors? It definitely sounds like a babywavy way of keeping that labor moving since you mentioned the contractions petering out. :lol:

    Just to avoid that long drawn out prodromal labor keep moving and putting that baby's head right on your cervix with gravity helping.
