Took Castor oil this morning at 9. It kicked in around 2pm and contractions started around 2:30. I've had some bloody show, YAY!!!

Hoping this is it!!



Update:: Thanks for all the support!! You guys are awesome! I feel so bad not posting baby pics!
Ugh!! Still pregnant!! I had contractions from 2:30-8:30. They really started to pick up around 6ish. I went to lay down to see if this was really it. Around 8pm I decided that I would call my MW at 8:30 if things were still going. In the back of my mind, there was a part of me that knew it wasn't . I went to have a cup of tea and by the end of the cup, everything stopped! It was weird. Like a wave passed through my body and all discomfort and sensation stopped all at once.

Anyway, I'm going in again today to have another shot at stripping my cervix. I had lots of gooey stuff (sorry TMI) over the last 24 hours. With my last 2 any bleeding/mucos and they were born within 48 hours. I hope that's true for this LO! Tomorrow they want me to do Cervidil and that's the last attempt they will make. After that, I have to go to the stupid hospital and be induced.
DH's birthday is on Saturday, I bet baby is waiting to share the day with his Daddy!
