Had two nights of crap unproductive contractions and this morning they have turned into proper ones - every 5 mins lasting a minute. DD and dogs are now at my Mum's and I am trying to get going with my hypnosis for childbirth stuff.

Good luck. I always visualised swooshing down a ski slope when I was doing my hypnobirthing during labour. And lovely warm sunny beaches.

Teary is a good sign!

Get some rest and try to eat something - Pasta is good as it will give you energy.

How exciting!!!

You are a flower just coming into blossom.

Breath in and ..... MOOOOOoooooooooooooo,

All the best. smile

Good Luck, hope it all goes well.

Pasta is good until it comes back up as I found out 13 days ago grin I was 4cm but stretched to 6 at 5pm and DD was born at 9.36 so it shouldn't be too long for you now smile

It's very exciting

<<sending stretchy vibes>>
