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.
