I'm having fairly strong contractions about every 5min, (and usually another small one in between). I called my midwife to let her know (she's a half hour away), and she said she was going to start getting ready and then head this way, but to let her know if they were coming any closer together or stronger.

I went to the Chiropractor yesterday, and had another appt set up for today (just in case), but it looks like we'll be canceling that now! Last night I drank some Ridiculously STRONG RRLT! (which btw was NASTY!! My midwife suggested it), and contractions started pretty soon after (about 10:30ish). We timed them for about an hour and a half, and they were 6-10min apart. So around midnight, I finally went to bed...and slept pretty good until 4:30.

It's 5:30 now. I'm now sitting on my birth ball, drinking a cup of tea...My mom or I will try and keep you all posted!

I'm so excited!! It's finally time!!
