I am in labor

We went to the market and I got out of the car and I thought I peed myself, but nope, it was my water breaking Within minutes I was drenched and knew that I had not peed myself. I have been at home with my DH and doula for a couple hours and my contractions are starting to pick up (i had none prior to the water breaking) and we will be heading into the birth center soon.

OMG, did the eggplant parm work? HAHAHAHAHAHAHHHAHAAA

Hey ladies.

Update:

After 4 hours after my water broke, my contractions were more regular and stronger and we went into the birth center. We get there and she examines me and says i am fingertip and 50%. ***? I get on the NST and none of my contractions were registering, though the baby looked good with her heart rate and was reactive to the contractions. I am GBS and had to get my IV.

Well, she sent me home after having me chug two containers of castor oil She wants me in ACTIVE labor by 24 hours post water breaking because of the GBS. I took the castor oil 40 mins ago and am just waiting, eek. The contractions since have been strong and pretty regular. No matter what, we go back there by 11 for my next round of antibiotics and then I will stay there until the baby comes! The midwife on call (until 8am tomorrow) is one of my favorites, so I am happy about that.

My doula checked me about 2 hours before we went to the birth center and she said she easily had two fingers in there, LOL, so it was a shock when the midwife said 1cm

80+ mins since I took the castor oil and nothing at least when we go back at 11, we are staying. My contractions are pretty darn frequent and getting stronger for sure. Ouchie. We are watching a movie and just trying to relax.
