I'm so glad we're back up! I'm not much of one for change but I am seeing good stuff so far so I'm happy. I just need time to get used to it.
Not having any way to chat and commiserate yesterday was HARD! I had virtually no ctx activity yesterday, saw my MW, had a great chat with her, etc. She said baby is in an ideal position (hoping s/he stays there!!), is not super low (which I figured) but that it doesn't really matter, and that she thinks all the prodromal start/stop stuff is my *body* being ready to go and baby not being quite ready yet. Makes sense to me, and my feeling has been that baby isn't quite ready, so it works. I keep trying to remember that baby's brain is growing every day - she says baby really benefits from every day up to 39 weeks (which is Friday!). So I'm trying, trying, trying to be patient...
And THEN, I took a nice bath in our new tub while the boys rested and started feeling a little more ctx-y. Laid town to rest after and was having more ctxs that got my attention from my dozing. Got up and had one of those "OH my this is new and different and long and strong!" ctxs. A few minutes later, another one... DH was gone but I was texting him and resisting the urge to tell him to come home until I had a few more... Got a variety of milder ctxs and one more whole-belly, strong, long ctx. And then nothing more of the big ones. I was SO hoping.
I did find a little bit of pink when I wiped later, though. Of course, I also had some mild signs of a UTI on the urine dip strip earlier and so it could've been pink urine? It was fairly dilute and hard to tell just where it came from... But later I checked and urine was totally clear, so who knows. I am resisting cervical checks as much as I can because I think they have caused irritation and, obviously, they mean nothing. I have guessed Fri/Sat for a baby and am content to be right in my guessing, so I just need to be patient. Sooo much easier said than done.
Anyway, hoping to hear about more babies as everyone gets back and finds us here!
