Even though this is my first (so I should reasonably expect to go past 40 weeks), I really feel like this kiddo is going to come a little early. The other day at my 34 week appointment, my midwife randomly said that she'd bet on seeing a baby a week+ before my due date. That would be fine with me!
In the past week I've started feeling BH contractions for the first time, and overall I just feel much more ... intense. I have this extremely strong wild animal sort of urge to just hide away by myself, and I am seriously losing patience with phone calls, co-workers, and even random errands that involve interacting with the public. I'm always really private and introverted anyway, but lately it's been just crazy. This psychological shift is just reinforcing my belief that the baby is sort of imminent ... a Winter Solstice baby would be cool :o)
Anybody else have a strong feeling about when labor might start? If you already have a kiddo, did you kind of know when they would show up, or was it a total surprise?
