Thank you for the vibes!
My midwife is pretty insistent that most first time mommies give birth later rather than sooner, and she's going on a hiking trip in Southern Utah this week, but told me I can call her cell phone any time and she will drive up immediately if birth seem imminent. I don't want to sound mean but I think it would be funny if I did go into labor early and she had to come back down some mountain to get to me!
Since this is all so new I have no idea what to expect. I've never had any braxton hicks contractions, and unlike the books that all tell me babies move less in the last month because of lack of space, Connor is moving more now than ever, from one side of my belly to the other, poking at my cervix, my spine, my sides, my belly button, and I can watch an entire show of belly moving from side of side, rippling as he does his Olympic gymnastics routine. And I am so short of breath all the time, even after just showering!
But I hope he comes earlier rather than later, because I'm so anxious to meet this little person who has been commenting on my singing voice and music tastes for months now.
