35 weeksHey, if anyone gets a card but no bead from me, let me know so I can mail you another one...this time I'll tape it in. I got my bead from Karin, too - it's so cool. Yeah, Letia there's supposed to be a bead inside.
I've had a little nauseau too, a couple times I had a dry heave for a second and man that hurt! My whole belly was involved. For those of you who have actually puked while being this big - wow, that must've hurt.
I had my obligitory newborn/ anxiety dreams the other night. In one I misplaced the baby soon after he was born, and in the other I left him for 3 days and when I came back he was like a 100 lb toddler or something. It was weird.
I can't believe some of you are having labor scares already, that's so exciting (to me). Glad everything turned out okay, though.
Momadance - about "growth" - that's so funny cause I was just thinking last night about maybe getting waxed, even though I've never done it before. And the movements get on my nerves when I'm trying to go to sleep. I'm so over being pregnant. I feel gigantic.
Oh, yeah and I like Jezmund Reed as well, it has a really nice flow to it. I've heard if a name sounds like "cellar door" than that's good, yk?
Nancy -that kind of made me laugh, your description of trying to reach your cervix. My mw mentioned that it can be difficult to feel if the baby's head isn't low and pushing against it. It can kind of float around. And I don't really know the answer to your ctrx question except to say I think they're all "real." They all serve to tone the uterus - and they may even start dialating you a bit. It's just not a labor contraction yet.
