quick update

Contractions have been going strong since last night, as in ALL night, so no sleep for me except for some mini-snoozes in between the pain. Unfortunately, they never stick to a clear pattern for more than an hour or so, and the closest ones are still 10 minutes apart. They were most regular from about 3-7am and also getting closer together during that time (started out about 18 minutes apart and made it down to 10). At that point, I was pretty sure today was going to be the day but now it looks unlikely. In the last few hours, I've had some that were 10 minutes apart and some that were over 30, so... not looking like much of anything right now.

M is being a super-star. Many of the contractions are testing the limits of my pain threshold and there's no way I'd be making it through without her.
