I had a great night's sleep last night and woke up thinking that this would be a nice day to go into labor. I took the kids to Mass (unfortunately had to leave early because it was too hot and humid for me), went to the gym and walked 4 miles on the treadmill, then took the kids to see a free movie in the theater.
After that we went home for lunch and naps, and when Phil got home from work, he took the kids out swimming (in our little pool) and biking at the nearby high school parking lot. While they were gone, I started having contractions about 15-20 minutes apart. They came home, we gave the kids dinner, and I drove to my parents house who live much closer to the hospital than we do. Phil got the kids finished eating, cleaned up the house, and got the last minute things packed up. Then he drove them over while I took a shower and walked around timing contractions.
We just put the kids to bed now, and my contractions are about 5 minutes apart for the last half hour or so, but not painful yet so we are waiting around to decide when to go to the hospital. I hope this is the real thing because I'm so excited to meet this little one :) Here's a picture my mom just took of us:
