Lurker in Labor!

Hi! My name is Emily and I have been a lurker since the beginning of this pregnancy. I posted a couple of times in the beginning, but things got crazy and I wasn't able to keep up like I wanted...

Anyway...I have a history of incompetent cervix, so I had a cervical cerclage to hold my cervix together. It was removed last week at 36 weeks 4 days. My 2 year old was born at 36 weeks 3 days after cerclage was removed. So today I am 37 weeks 4 days, and that means we are out of the pre-term woods.

I have been dilated to 3.5 and 80% effaced for a week. This morning about 2:30, I woke up to a contraction and my water broke as I got out of bed. When we got to the hospital, I was dilated to almost 5. I got an epidural at 7, and now I am at 8 cm. Looks like we will have a baby soon!
