Anyone up?

When I put my son to bed tonight, I thought I might be putting him to bed for the last time as my baby.

I might be jumping the gun, but I've just had a feeling all evening. Crampy, dull back ache, etc.

I slept for two hours, but it was fitful. I keep dreaming I'm in labor and I'm super crampy. Got up at 1 (PST) and mild contractions are coming every 2.5-4.5 minutes but are only a minute or less. Pressure but no pain. Could still be another day or two but I think my body is headed that way. Will update!

**UPDATE** 3:30 PST

Contractions still regular and more uncomfortable, but not yet painful. I do believe I'm leaking amniotic fluid - slow leaks when lying/sitting but when I visit the potty every 15 min or so I get big gushes, and I haven't had anything to drink in about 5.5 hours!

**UPDATE** 6:20 PST

Was able to get some rest as contractions slowed, but were more intense. They are getting a bit painful now. It's going to be a long day!

**UPDATE** 7:30 PST

Not sure who I'm updating to? Anyway, what was left of my water broke about 15 minutes ago. I was outside feeding the horses and cleaning a stall and each step let out a gush. On my way back to the house there were several large gushes and I was completely soaked. I've washed up, changed clothes, and will update again when I can, even if no one is reading this

**UPDATE** 9:30 PST

Contractions about every 3-3.5 minutes. They are not fun but definitely moving right along. This may be my last update.

**FINAL UPDATE**

I did a lot of walking until about 11:30 am. We then headed in to the hospital and were admitted around noon. I labored until 1:30 am on Monday, then started pushing. At 2:21 am, I finally got my VBA2C! It required a small baby, a vacuum, and ultimately an episiotomy. I was certain I was carrying a strapping boy, around 7-8 lbs, but I ended up with a beautiful baby girl. She is 6 lbs 8 oz and 20". I'm in love!
