So I am pretty ticked. I have been all day, and I am finally coming to terms with my lack of labor. Not because I just feel like I want the baby out, but because I really thought I was in LABOR! Late last night I was having quite a few painful contractions (for the first time I can say these were the "real deal" and not Brx Hx) and finally dosed off at about 1am thinking "THIS MIGHT BE IT!!". Cut to about 4am, I wake up with more painful contractions AND my back, front, and even thighs ache like I am having a very bad menstrual time. I get up to pee several times through the night, I even go get a banana and some milk. I switch positions, I sit up for a while, and I even get on my and knees for a bit. The contractions never get into a pattern, but I figure early labor is like that, right? I call my mom at 6 am to see if she has a class scheduled to teach, and to warn her this MIGHT be the start of something!
Cut to 7 am, one hour later, when I step out of bed to get up for the day. NOTHING. Immediately I feel fine--as if I hadn't been in pain all night. What. The. Crap. Are you kidding me? Oh well. I read up on prodromal labor today, and at least I may have become more dilated, or gotten the Aug-Frog into a better position. Oh yeah, and I have a few more stretch marks, too. Harumph.
How far along: 40 WEEKS!!!!
