Thanks ragmama for checking on me! I just stopped in here this morning to tell everyone I was in labor.

I had bloody show all day yesterday. My contractions started this morning at 6am. They have been very regular ever since. When I am walking around they are every 4-7 minutes. When I sit about every 7-9 minutes. I have to breath through them, but in between I feel fine. I know today is the day!!!! I am going to rest, eat some healthy snacks, and prepare to meet my baby!

Not exactly sure when to tell the midwife to come over. She is having me call her every 1/2 hour and she only lives 2 miles away. But I don't want to feel like a watched pot. I think I will know when to ask her to come, or she will know by my signs.

Proud mommy to Kourtney Lauren (10/01/03), McKenna Grace (07/11/05), and Blake Matthew (10/21/07)
