Water, water everywhere!

My water broke at 6:15 this morning! Contractions began immediately 2-3min apart, but have sloooooooooowed way down. No pattern at all. Bouncing on the ball and getting ready to go for a walk. Lots of bloody show and mucus.

Called the midwife and she wants me to labor at home until I can't walk or talk comfortably. That seems like it could be several hours from now with the way things are going right now...

Hopefully today is the day I meet my little Ralphie!!!

Yey so exciting! I have been following your blog forever--through my numerous failed iuis, two failed ivfs, and my positive IVF (I am 16 weeks pregnant! )So I just wanted to say THANK YOU and wish you the best of luck with everything. You deserve it! I cannot wait to read the wonderful news.

I agree about the 'can't walk comfortably.' but I could talk all through to 5 cm dilated, so if you feel they are intense, make them consider looking at you!
positive vibes!!!
