Is this it?

Posted on

I was having mild contractions about 15-20 minutes apart all last night. This morning, when I woke at about 6AM to pee, I wiped and the craziest amount of bloody mucus EVER came out. My bloody show!! I was giddy.

My contractions have since intensified and gone from one about every 7-8 minutes to one every 4 minutes, but they are only lasting about 40 seconds. I called my doula and she said I was most likely in “early labor” right now, and that it could last a while…Ladies, I don’t want to jinx anything….but I think this might be the real deal. And I think that I might go fast. I don’t know why I feel this way, but the contractions I’m feeling are rapidly intensifying to a point where I now have to cover my eyes and breathe through them. I know they’re not 1 minute-90 seconds long yet, but I’ ma bit nervous that I’ll be hit hard and fast with active labor.

Famous last words, right?

I guess the fact that I’m able to type this post at all means that I’m pretty early in this process. But it’s exciting nonetheless! 41 weeks and 6 days and I’m finally feeling like the ball has been set in motion.

About Sunny

I'm a happily married, 31 year old gal who is just starting her journey to conceive. I also have ovaries that may need a jump start. This blog is an attempt to channel my obsessive research on my Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome into something positive....like a pregnancy test. That would be awesome. I also hope that other women with this condition will find support in this blog. There are a lot of us out here! Happy reading, whatever your journey may be.

  3. This is it my friend! I was at 4 mins apart and 45 secs long when I left for the hospital and went fairly quick. By the time I got to the hospital I could barely speak through the contractions. I am so excited for you!

    • Good to know. I’m still able to talk and walk through them but they HURT. I’m hoping I know when to call my doula over here… feeling a bit clueless right now. I have no idea if I have a high pain tolerance or if these are just the tip of the iceberg.

  5. Ps – rest while you can if/when they’re not too strong, cause you may be up for a while! Also, my doula told me to take a bath – if contractions stop then it may be a bit still, if they don’t then this is it!!!
