I think I'm sensitive too; I have been wondering a lot this pg if it would even be possible for me to labour when our dc are awake. I just can't imagine being able to shut off my knowledge of their needs (and then not being able to focus on the birth). Last night i thought I might be beginning, but I went to sleep and woke up still pg, although my contractions continued until shortly before dinner. I had dh bring everything I'll need upstairs last night.
I think this pre-labour stuff is definitely the hardest part. I'm excited for the labour, ready to embrace it, but this stuff is really no fun at all.
I've been thinking of you often and hoping you are well. I'm checking up often!
