Congratulations! He's adorable, and I love his name
Vc, my contractions were always worse in the evenings, too. I've tended to ignore them unless they're truly painful- the ones I could honestly just describe as "uncomfortable" didn't count toward my labor watch, because I had sooo many of those that I'd've been on the phone to my OB constantly if I'd called every time there were 4+ in an hr.
