Still pregnant. Still having random contractions that are coming and going. I'm going to take dd for a long walk today and see if that helps speed things along.

I had some bloody show last night and lots more mucous, so I guess that shows that things are definitely happening.

I have a bad cold all of the sudden!!! I started to feel yucky yesterday afternoon and it got worse and worse. Then when I went to bed last night I started having lots of cramping and pressure. I started having regular contractions that I just could not sleep through. It's a really terrible combination...sneezing, headache, sinus pressure, strong-ish contractions, pubic bone pain from h*ll, and no sleep. I was just about to rally the troops and call my mw because the contractions were starting to get very intense, but I decided I would try to force myself to sleep and try not to think about the contractions. I knew I had to get some sleep if I was going to be able to do anything. So around 5:30am I finally fell asleep. I woke up off and on with random contractions, but they lightened up enough for me to sleep until around 8 or 8:30. Now I'm contemplating taking some tylenol for my headache. How weird that I would take pain killers for my headache and sinus pressure, but I won't for labor. I'm still having random contractions, but they have died down quite a bit. I'm getting tired of this prodromal labor stuff. But maybe my body is just waiting until I have enough energy to do it right.

for you Jenn. My contractions have pretty much stopped all together and I am thankfully feeling healthy, but we are in very similar places!

yay, I made it through the night and my contractions are still going strong!! They are 7-10 minutes apart still, but I can feel the babe pushing down into my cervix with each contraction. I have tons of pressure on my cervix and rectum. I feel like I can't stop pooping. And gobs of bloody show each time I wipe! I'll keep you all posted as time goes on.
