It's all beginning

Well, as of last night at about 6:30 i started getting real contractions!!! They were nothing to worry about, hardly noticable, and i was a at a social event until 10:30! We got home and went to bed fairly quickly. I did manage to get a few hours of sleep in between contractions that were getting stronger and waking me up, but only occuring every half hour. Morning came and contractions were getting closer and more intense, but still not too bad. Then i took a shower and things slowed down. Then i feel asleep, and things slowed down... and haven't really picked back up again. It is now 11am and i am feeling very good, not too tired, but a little worried that things are going slow.
Outside there is beautiful snowfall so we are going to go for a short walk, and then i will relax in the rocking chair (which seemed to move things along a little!). I know i have alot of hard work ahead of me, but bring it on!!!!

So keep your eyes open for a post announcing a baby in the next few days!

Yippy!
