Well as I posted on FB, I started having contractions yesterday evening. They were pretty intense in terms of pressure and pinching/pain in my cervix and rectum and sometimes I was having just general aching in my whole pubic/thigh area during contractions. I tried timing them, I wasn't super great at being very accurate, but some were lasting over a minute and coming every 2-3 minutes, but some shorter and 15-20 minutes apart. They were definitely hurting all over my belly, but didn't didn't really take work to get through. I was thinking maybe I'd have a full moon baby! By 10 pm they seemed to space out a bit, so I took some cramp bark & valerian and tried to sleep. Was able to sleep until 1:30 or 2 and then couldn't sleep until after 4. Had a few contractions during that time but just couldn't sleep. I tried more valerian, but this time it didn't work.
Hubby was super cute last night, he was super excited that I might be in labor. I didn't expect that!
This morning, not so much. A few contractions here and there - and I was super nesty for me - I had to finish the sewing projects I started this weekend (see the sewing thread) and then had to clean my sewing room. The cleaning part was really unnecessary... Now, I'm just trying to relax and rest. Maybe I'll take a nap soon.
It would be super ironic to actually have my baby on my due date, LOL.
