Ok, so it's 11:55pm (March 11th) and I am 40 weeks and 2 days and having regular contractions that are pretty intense and a bit painful. Until today I have only had painless contractions.

It started about noon today while I was at work. I was on lunch and noticed that my usual Braxton-Hicks felt a bit stronger and were coming more often than before. Still totally painless though. Just tighter. After work (about 4:30) I went for a walk with hubby and my sister for at least 30 minutes. We started timing them and they ranged between 5 & 10 minutes apart. Did not time duration. Things continued.

By about 6:30 or so I noticed they were getting even more intense. Within that hour they started to get a bit uncomfortable.

At 9pm I was about to get in the shower and noticed some watery blood run down my leg. (I was undressed) This got me all kinds of excited! lol

And now (@ 12:15pm) the contractions are about 35 seconds long and three 1/2 minutes apart but we have only been timing again for about 15 minutes. These contractions are much stronger than when they started this morning, and are a little painful and quite uncomfortable. I have to concentrate a bit to get through them but I can still talk if I need to. It's just uncomfortable to do so.

Anyways, just wanted to let everyone know! Wish me luck! haha. Going to try to get some sleep now if possible.

*****************
UPDATE!

Arrow Storm was born yesterday on March 12th 2013! It really was labor! She was born here at home with family, a doula and midwives.

She was 7lbs, 9oz, and 22 inches long.

I am definitely going to write out a labor and delivery story. It was so amazing... But hard! SO HARD. Anyways, here is a picture of her till I can upload some more with our story.

Oh yeah another baby will be arriving soon! any updates yet? I hope contractions didn't peter out for you and they got a little stronger throughout the night (while you slept like a baby) and then this morning your body is gearing up to birth your bundle of joy.

Congratulations! It is pretty hard isnt it? Dont worry, the memory of the hard parts will eventually fade and perhaps baby fever will hit again

She is a cutie! And you are so brave having her at home.
