I may be in labor...maybe? Hopefully.

Thought I would update, for anyone paying attention.

Here is what's going on. As you may remember I've had weeks of prodromal labor. Several times I was sure I was in labor...so I hesitate to even post this again. You are going to be all...that Michelle doesn't even know what labor is.

BUT...that's why I said, maybe.

Today I took some herbs, that are suppose to help even out the braxton hicks contractions and to stimulate the uterus to more real work, along with a homeopathic. They are all suppose to work together to get me going.

Then an hour later I had two really good OPENING contractions. I don't have any idea if those two things were related or if it was just time to do some real work.

Went to the bathroom and found bloody show. (Going to the bathroom a lot...well, as I already mentioned, is a good sign.) Bloody show is a sign that labor is eminent. For my births, I have that right as I'm going into labor and for a few hours after I start.

Since then I have been having decent intensity contractions about 15 minutes apart. They have now gotten a little closer together, even though I've been laying down.

So who knows????

The bad thing is that our pipes froze last night. OOPS! So if you are reading this, pray we have warm water for my birth. And if you aren't reading this...why aren't you?

I'll update as I know more.
