It could be any day now ---- I'm ready!  And totally uncomfortable!


On Sunday and through Monday night - I had a lot of contractions.  Waves on crampy-ness, full on contractions from the top down, side contractions - every which way.  I was pretty uncomfortable - but it wasn't painful - just annoying.  I couldn't sleep on Monday night with all that was happening, but finally fell asleep around midnight.  I knew I would need my sleep - if this was indeed "the start". 

I woke up on Tuesday with a few contractions, but they seemed to stop.  I ran a few errands and headed to work knowing that I had to finish a couple of things.  It was hard to concentrate - I kept waiting for the contractions to start again - but they didn't.  I drank a ton of water, just to make sure I wasn't dehydrated and having contractions due to that. 


I just couldn't imagine anther night or two like Monday night that wouldn't send me into labor. 


Nothing.  Nada.  Zip.  Zero.

Again - another quiet night. 

Albeit - totally uncomfortable.   Baby girl decide to turn her back from a very comfortable backbone to my bellybutton to a side position.  Aye Aye Aye.  My legs are totally restless and I had to get up about (seems like) 45 times to pee.  I finally got up and slept in the other room so that I wouldn't disturb Lance.  I got to sleep but then my hips woke me up.  The other bed is more firm and my hips just couldn't take it anymore.  So, I came back to my bed.  Later I woke up to lower back pain that wouldn't go away no matter what position (I only have 2 choices!) I was in.  I finally had to get out of bed, again - and stretch my back this way and that. 

Didn't help.

So, I tried my heating pad.  That was nice.  It helped. 

If you're listening little girl - we're ready to meet you!  Any time now - The sooner the better!
