Saturday night I was pretty sure we were about to get this party started. I started having regularish contractions and even started timing them. They weren't extremely painful which is the only reason that made me think it could be a false alarm. Even so, these somewhat regular contractions lasted hours. Even into the night and straight through the next morning. Weird right? The few women I told about it said, "why didn't you go to the hospital?!". Well ladies, it's Monday and there is no baby in sight so I guess I was right in staying home... wouldn't you say?

Right now my husband and I are in a constant state of "is this it?". I'll take every bit of advice and since I am patiently awaiting the real thing, I would love to read some of your stories on how you "just knew" or didn't know right away. Humor me. Educate me. I'll take whatever I can get right now cause frankly, I'm kinda bored and getting tired of this guessing game. Note: I am not tired of waiting it out just yet, just the guessing part.
Also I don't think I ever updated you on my progress... I was last checked on Thursday the 16th and was told that I was.... drumroll please... 75% effaced. Some thought I would go into labor that weekend because of the progress but that obviously did not happen. I don't mind one bit because since then, we have finished the nursery (woop woop), finished our birth plan, put the hospital bags in the car and have been enjoying the time we have left with just the two of us.
