Holy cow, I just read that link and didn't realize that's what I have!  I just thought I have normal pregnancy woes.  Rolling over in bed is so painful, as is when I first stand up to walk.  I just thought the baby had been sitting low for many weeks now.  I didn't realize I had a "condition" LOL.  
Congratulations!     And yeah, I've noticed so many really fast labors so far!

With my last birth I listened to one of the tracks (can't remember which one) for many hours to keep focused.  This time around I'm not sure, but I will have them all cued up on my iPod just in case.  There are a couple that are specific to when you are in labor and pushing, so I want to have those ready to go.  Plus there is a Birthing Day affirmations track that is pretty good - I think I will listen to it in early labor to keep focused and positive.  I also want to...
