I'm still here. My first one started coming a week early from due date (calculated by O date, not LMP), but didn't actually come out until three days before due. I'm due Wednesday the 18th, and so far, have been having Belly Hugs (I call 'em belly hugs because Braxton-Hicks is named after a (guy) doc who never actually felt one. Nyah!) on and off and completely randomly for a couple of days. However, they seem really light to me, so light that I have to actually figure out with my hands if my whole uterus is tight or not. Occasionally, I'll have "crampy" ones low down, which I think are more "get down to business" ones. But they're still not enough to stop me from talking, although if I'm moving with a lot of bending, I have to be careful when bending back upright. Ironically, as tired as I am, these ones seem only to come either late late at night (when i've gotten up to pee and can't get back to sleep), or in the middle of doing something where I'm working, like cleaning the garage.
But I'm carrying way far out and low, and it's very hard for me to be comfortable. Good news is that baby seems to be in an anterior, or anterior-favorable position, so maybe the reason I'm not doing a full week's work with this one is because I don't need to (DS was turned towards my right leg and not really in a good ant. position for the longest time during labor).
My issue, though is that I can't seem to remember what contractions felt like. It's weird. I remember how tired I was, how my legs felt like they'd been popped off and put back on like a Barbie Doll's, and the weird and paranoid place I went to when I had to transfer from birth center to hospital. But I can't remember what it felt like to have a really good, strong contraction. It's the weirdest thing.
