Early Labor?

I went to the DR again today.
I'm officially 1 cm dilated.
And 40% effaced.

So, as I'm leaving, the nurse whispers in my ear about "labor sex."
We tried it out tonight.
Besides the whole "OMG I can't breathe on my back" kind of thing ... I think it might have worked.

I've been having random contractions throughout the night. They aren't getting closer together ... or any stronger ... but they are continuing. Even if I lay on my side and/or drink some water.

I haven't slept much. I think that Tuesday inadvertently was my last day. There's no way I'll be trekking my pregnant stomach up to school today and risk going into ACTIVE labor around those kiddos. Nope. No way.

I think it's time for a good old fashioned walk? Any other suggestions?

OMG. This is so exciting! Wish you a smooth delivery and a wonderful birthing experience (whatever that means, really. I walked in and yelled, "Give me DRUG!") Will be checking to see WHEN the baby arrives. I wonder whether it is going to be TODAY. You never know!

Very exciting! I've never read a blog post by someone in labour before. I bet you've had that baby by now. All the best!
