Here I am again...

Middle of the night and I'm having contractions. These are quite a bit stronger than last time though... AND my hot shower did not take the edge off them at all and I had some brown discharge... so maybe means something? Who knows. It's a good thing I don't have to go to work anymore (Yes it's Saturday, but it's the thought).

I'll update as soon as something changes one way or another.

::Update:: As of 7:30, I lost a big part of my mucus plug mixed with blood. Contractions are still pretty painful and coming about every 5 minutes or so. I tried to lay down and get more sleep from 5 AM on but it wasn't working because laying down made the contractions more painful.

::Update #2:: 9:00 AM Called my midwife. We're meeting her at the birthing center to check for progress. My contractions are pretty painful and 5 minutes apart and I am still losing bits of bloody mucus plug. Not sure if I will be able to update from there so if you don't hear from me, assume we're staying and having a baby!!

I hope this is it for you, Jessi! I know how anxious you are to meet Quinn! My fingers are crossed for you (but I'm not crossing my legs because I want my baby too, LOL)

You're going to have a baby. You're going to have a baby, lol! AHHH! I'm so excited for you. This is good. This is really good!

CRAP, I offered no advise before, DOH!

Walk when you need to, but try and rest and take it really slow between contractions. Get on your birthing ball. Do what you have been practicing. Do you have an ipod? Bring it and/or put it on with music you know you and quinn both like and are use to.

Also, brush your teeth. I know this sounds stupid, but I remember thinking, "DAMN, I forgot to brush my teeth!" So I made Brian leave and go get my tooth brush, lol.

Good luck, and as always, I'm very excited for you guys.

p.s. Remember, don't let the contractions get ahead of you, if you do, you are still normal, we've all done it. I got made at myself for some reason.

I really hope this is it for you and I can't wait to see pictures of your little buddy!
Good luck with labour (although I'm sure you will labour like a champ), you are going to be such a great mom!

It sounds like you are well on your way! I hope your little of bundle of joy is making his way toward the exit and that you are snuggling with him very soon.
