Contractional Obligations

Well, here's an irony -- I'm having contractions. 5-10 minutes apart, about 30 seconds each. Not too intense yet (obviously not, I'm online blogging about it), but just enough to keep me from sleeping. They've been going on for over an hour now, and neither getting up and walking around nor taking a warm shower got rid of them, so I suspect they're the Real Thing.

Am debating whether or not to call the midwives back (they've already been here once tonight, checking me out when I thought my water had broken -- but I wasn't having any contractions then, and after doing a thorough exam and a swab, they decided it was either a false alarm, or the leak had closed up again).

I think I'll wait another half an hour or so... whoo, here's another one. Did I say ouch? Ouch.
