Started yesterday evening, getting some contractions. I was working from home and they were getting intense enough that I started timing them. They were about 10 minutes apart but not terribly bad, just noticable.

Was up quite a bit last night because even after drinking plenty of water and laying down in bed, they were still coming. I was able to sleep about 45 mins straight, that was my longest stretch, otherwise I was waking each time a contraction came.

Got up this morning and they still weren't terribly strong so I took my son to school and went to work. Of course, it's my BUSIEST week of the year, no exaggeration. I"m trying to get done the things that only I do and my sub can do the rest, but these contractions are definitely getting stronger, so we'll see how much longer I last before I high-tail it out of here!

I'm definitely having more back pain than I had with my son, the back ache is nearly constant, contractions still about 10 mins apart but stronger (they begin in my back/sides and squeeze to the front and then finish down low in the pelvis). Quite a bit of pressure too.
