I posted this on Facebook at 7:30am:
39 Weeks Today! Ready to evict this little resident whenever she is ready :)
At around 8:30, I started writing down my contractions (not the first time I had done this, but they had always tapered off before):
They were mostly 4-8 minutes apart this entire time. They gradually got closer to 4 minutes consistently.

She was absolutely gorgeous and perfect. I could not believe she was here! She was born at 3:14pm, a little less than 7 hours after I had started timing my contractions that morning.
