Waiting for labor....

Thursday I had a prenatal appointment and I learned I was already 2cm dilated and baby is fully engaged at 0 station.  Of course she couldn't say for sure, but she did think maybe this weekend!
Thursday night I was awakened to strong, painful contractions coming 8-10 an hour.  After a couple of hours I was able to get back to sleep, but they were still there when I got up.  Took a shower, started with my laundry and cleaning, hubby decided to work from home...... then about 10am they ALL stopped!  Bummer.  Sent hubby to work and waited and waited.  I was able to take a nap while the kids napped (a very rare thing) and still nothing.  Went to bed thinking labor would start last night and I was VERY disappointed to not have a single contraction. 

Today I am very, very uncomfortable with a lot of pain "down there" and a lot of discharge. 
I've been cleaning, organizing, walking outside.......maybe, just maybe labor will start tonight?!

Please baby, I want to meet you so badly!!!
