labor update!

an update while I'm awake (yes, awake dang it *yawn*) got to bed about 10:30 to sleep sometime between then and a bit after 11. got woke up about 10 til 1 with a good contrax and had to go pee. after that I notice that they've moved up to about 5 minutes apart now (were 7-10 apart starting about 5pm) with a really good one about every 20 minutes or so.
also notice that baby girl is VERY active. she must really be bugged by these things. LOL!
I try to go back to sleep, but about 1:15 get up cause I thought I had to go poo (turns out it was just gas *blush*), but after going back to bed, I cant get comfy and also my sleep shirt is damp cause I've been sweating like crazy the whole time I was sleeping! :P
finally around 1:35 (after another good contrax) I get up to go walk around the living room. might as well do something, right?
baby girl still beating my innards up and contrax still 5 minutes even with the position change. around 1:45 need to go pee again and I'm losing some more plug now (first time since last night). so another good sign!
walk walk walk, pet kitties, walk walk-try not to fall over when a blink takes too long LMBO!
all contrax are tolerable, though every few I have to remind myself to relax my body down and let them ease up.
its 2:16 now. dh is getting us up at 4:30 to head to Gallatin. the 3 youngest boys are at my moms and they'll get there about 8 since there's no reason for them to be there at an earlier time (Unless we have to go before then on our own). *Dr wants us there by 6am unless we get there earlier*
I think I'll go try to lay back down after my next pee break. LOL!

and I've come to the conclusion that I'm just a very slow laborer without my water being broke.
