High Alert

I've been having contractions since 5:30 or so this morning. They have been intensifying but are still not at the magic "every 5 minutes, 1 minute in duration" level. Nonetheless, we've kept Viva home from school while we wait to see what happens and we've got all local family members on standby. I am cramping, hips are extra sore, back is killing me. It feels like this is it.

FYI: I'm using to time contractions.

Stay tuned...

P.S. If you can believe it, we still have no name for the baby. Trying to decide between two - I guess we'll wait until she gets here!

WOW! Here's sending baby love your way and that everything goes well. Your posts have made me think back to my first pregnancy.... the super hero nesting and organzing and all that productivity and then BAM! Baby is ready to enter this world. Man, nature is interesting.

Anyway, can't wait to hear about the new addition. Virtual hugs.

Yay! Best of luck! (This buys you some extra time after birth to recover before the move, right? Good thinking baby Blah Blah)

WHOO HOO! Good luck if it's the real deal and not just warm-up braxton hicks contractions! :)
