hey, kehliouise, that's pretty promising progress there! and you haven't been on for 6 hours or so, so you're either sleeping, or i'm guessing that labor is rocking! (or you've realized- unlike me- that sometimes it's good to turn the computer off just for reality's sake
spotting is more likely associated with an "oil change" or vaginal exam at this point in pregnancy, but you really never know. i'm sure you'll be watching it closely (i can't keep my eyes off every toilet paper swipe- searching obsessively for any tinge of pink.)...
yesterday i noticed things felt different for me, and i even had a few rumbling contractions. the baby has changed position to who-knows-what, so i don't know what to think about a posterior position anymore- hopefully i'll get a good read at my mw appointment tomorrow. he's also really, really low, and i have that sort of "anytime now, i'm gonna toot and he's gonna fly out" feeling, except that i still don't feel like labor is imminent, if that makes any sense. at 40+1, this is still kinda early for me. but ya never know.
MIL moves back in tonight. feeling mixed about that. i think i would feel a lot better if i knew baby was anterior and i could face labor with confidence.
i am also sleeping like a maniac. sure, i get up to pee every few hours, but i sleep like the dead the rest of the night- i even passed out on the sofa with the kids making a huge racket in the room with me for a few hours yesterday. i must have clocked 12 hours combined overnight. it feels good! kinda weird, but i'm not gonna knock it.
okay, that's my ramble. gotta eat some food. i am so glad DH is working from home till the baby comes.
good luck to anyone laboring or close-to-laboring today! (kehliouise!)
