I started contracting earlier tonight (well Sunday night around 9pm) while cooking dinner.

After we ate we decided to go for a walk around a track in town. Did that for like 45 mins.

Came back home...still contracting. Downloaded one of those contraction timers in the app store for my phone...looks like they are anywhere from 3-5 mins apart and 45 seconds to a minute long. Majority of them at a minute. I have been trying to sleep too but cant. They are not awful or anything but I am sorta breathing thru them some...so its just confusing....

I am really hoping this is the early stages of labor. My appt is in like 5 hours....if I am not dilated anymore I was supposed to be scheduling my csection.

I want my vbac if possible so prayers are good thoughts are definitely welcomed right now!!! thx

---
UPDATE:

No changes today progression wise. My surgery is booked for this Wednesday and we have to be there at 5 am. Tonight will be my last blood thinning shot so they can monitor my blood tomorrow at my pre-op appointment.

I am still hoping I go into labor on my own before then but I'd like to not to drive myself crazy with it. I stopped having contractions this morning around 630 am or so. I am starting to have a few more and hopefully they will keep up. I just don't really know if they are doing any good since I had them ALL NIGHT last night and had no progression today. My body never seems to cooperate.

It is nice to finally have a date though She will be here soon regardless!!!!

small update:

Thanks everyone!

Unfortunately they are a little more sporadic now...not sure if its because I am up moving around or what :/ But I had them all night last night...pretty much every 3-5 mins...sometimes every 10 though when I got up to pee and stuff.

Hoping I have some more this morning at the doctors office...I don't know if they will do an nst or not though.

I will probably still schedule my surgery for tomorrow (Tues) morning unless I am somehow dilated more to where they can do a foley bulb.

I just had a contraction as I sat here and typed this. REALLY hope something happens TODAY to avoid the mess tomorrow!

Isn't the fact that you have contractions a good thing? I really hope this is it for you. I know we are both in the same boat when it comes to VBAC, so I am praying hard that you don't have to do another c-section. I hope this contractions is a good thing and that it means that she's coming.

I'm glad to hear that she will be here soon either way but still hoping that she comes on her own.
