    Progress. (Baby? Maybe!)

    Yours truly is now 1.5cm dilated. I started spotting last night. I noticed it during my regularly scheduled mid-night treckto the bathroom. This fact alone got me all excited and I couldn’t go back to sleep. Consequently, I slept poopie all night anticipating something else, something bigger to happen.

    Apparently I’m also having contractions. I say apparently because my OB noticed it at my appointment today and I couldn’t feel anything. However, since she mentioned it I am now starting to pay attention, and am noticing cramps that feel like mild menstrual pains every 10-15 minutes or so.

    OB’s guess is that G’s birthday party will be within the next 3 days.

    These are all the good news.

    The weird news is that I might be leaking amniotic fluid. My water hasn’t broken (as far as either I or the OB can tell), but her amniotic test strips are turning green. She’s asking me to keep an eye on it, take a walk today and then call her if it continues. My instincts are telling me not to worry, but I feel silly that I didn’t ask what it all means. She’ll call this afternoon to check up on me so I have a chance to ask her then.

    That’s the G update of the day. If she’s right and he does make an appearance at her 3 day mark, he’ll be right on his Due Date schedule. Virgos! Figures!

    Update: Well, the hours since I wrote this have been interesting. I’m now def. having contractions that I can feel. It’s Early stage labor, but hey, it’s Labor. This can go on for days though, or stop, so we’ll see.

      That’s very exciting =)
      Won’t be long now. I’ll keep thinking painless labor thoughts for you. I for one wouldn’t describe most of labor as painful… as long as I could stay relaxed the contractions were only uncomfortable… They did hurt when riding in the car though. That last bit right before the head is out was more than uncomfortable, but only lasts a very short time and is closely followed by lots of happy hormones 😉

      I think I’m going to have trouble sleeping now just because I’m excited for you!
