My water broke at 3:30 this morning. The dog woke me up just after midnight to go outside and I couldn't get back to sleep. I was laying in bed reading "Growing Without Schooling" when I felt like someone took a huge marble and smacked it against my pubic bone. I figured the baby had just done something weird and ignored it. I began to feel, uh, slightly damp and wondered if I had waited too long to get up and pee... When I stood, fluid ran down my legs.

I've been continuing to gush all day and contracting intermittently. I saw the acupuncturist and took a 4 mile walk. I am actually contemplating castor oil. I'll keep you posted. Hoping for a baby before dawn.
