Preparing for the Hospital...

(Continuation from last post) This post is very descriptive and is not for the easily grossed out. Read at your own discretion.
October 17, 2011When I got home from my parents I started to “nest”, which is cleaning up and getting ready for baby. I also was doing my thank you cards from the baby shower. I went to the bathroom, at 11: 50 pm, and noticed slime in the toilet (TMI), then realizing that I just lost part of my mucus plug. I immediately rushed to my computer to check how long it takes to go into labor once you lose your mucus plug. The site I was looking on someone had said they went into labor 2 weeks after they lost their mucus plug. I was devastated that it could still be another two weeks but very excited that my little angel was on her way.
About 5 min after my water broke… all over my couch. I ran to the bathroom because I thought I just lost control of my bladder. By the time I got to the bathroom my PJ’s were soaked and the hall had wet spots leading to the bathroom. I was so excited but didn't want to get up till Ben came home from work (He works till midnight). 
After my water broke I had the most painful contractions I could have imagined. They lasted about a min and were about 5 - 7 min apart. I started to pack my hospital bag and was freaking out because I was so excited. Ben calmed me down and let me know that it might be awhile till she came. So, we decided to play some Lego: Batman on the Xbox for a bit until I could not handle the contractions.
At around 1:30am I could not handle them any longer. So I had a shower, we finished packing the bag and off to the hospital we went.
