today is the official "due date"
although only 5% of babies actually arrive on their actual due date, and a due date is only a wild guesstimate at best,
i have been having mentrual like contractions since about 5:30am this morning. some have been regular at 6 minutes apart.
and then sometimes they are not at all regular. they are not increasing in intensity.
but they are enough to make me wonder if she may actually arrive tonight or sometime extremely soon.
just not sure...
it could go on like this for days or it could stop altogether or it could turn into "something"

how is that for vague?

i'll tell you tho, they hurt much more than just plain old braxton hicks contractions.
some of them feel like someone just punched me in the stomache.

m was going to go to the dmv today but decided to stay home with me just in case.
and the midwife comes over at 2pm to give me my weekly checkup.

meanwhile we're watching the wonderful movie "babette's feast"

it is bizarre to have made it to this day. it was such a far away thing last winter...and now it is here.

and in other news, ingmar bergman died today.

i am anxious ana! i hope it goes well...i know i keep saying that ...just not sure what to say to be of support!
love, shannon

i'm all freaked out! i would imagine the waiting is hard...is it? i mean, i thik if i were pregnant i would like to be able to keep really busy to keep my mind off of things, but that's me of course not liking to go deep.

oh also, me being a Virgo, i started my womb-escape on my due date. My mom, being a Leo, but probably most significantly being very small-hipped, didn't have me till the next day ;-)

Crossing fingers for you and m and lily today! Your cam is blue screened and I don't know what that portends!

I guessed that you would give birth on July 31, wooooo..we're close!!!! Good Luck!

You are all in my thoughts!

I had my kid exactly 25 minutes past her due date after laboring from 2:30 am on her due date. I was just like you, thinking there was no was this could be "it," until I was having contractions 5 minutes apart. :)
