You know, the kind where it comes in a wave from top to bottom! Complete with pressure whenit got to the bottom. That was really trippy! Came out of the blue, lasted I dunno, maybe 30 seconds? Totally wierd. Baby's moving around now. Guess maybe I'm a'dilatin'

Namaste, Tara (36 wks tomorrow..whic is in less than 2 hours *smile*)

You're totally going to have a baby before January. Maybe not next week, but definitely by the new year.

So last night I had ctx every 30 minutes for a couple of hours, then they were every 12 minutes! After a few of those, I went and laid down, had one more and they quit (and I slept...sort of) It's obviously a gravitational thing because I got up this morning but laid down mainly for an hour or so. I got up and sat down and poof! contraction. So I laid back down. I stood up cleaning and making breakfast, had one or two maybe, laid down to play with toddler, they stop. I got up a few minutes ago and sat down here to check on the DDCs and whaddya know? I've had another contraction. I told my DH that I can't sit and stand all day today. Not because I don't want the baby to come if it's ready but because my house is a trashpile and I don't wnat anyone in here for this birth with it looking like this. Petty huh? I'm 36 weeks today, I come froma family that never makes it past 36 weeks...but I've made it to 38 weeks twice, so I think I'm okay for a while. now how am I supposed to get all this housework done if I can't walk around all day!?!?

Namaste, Tara

My contractions are the same Tara. In fact, I get them the most when I first wake up in the morning and get up. For the next hour or so they come so close together that they really could be *it* if I didn't know my body better.

Drink more water!!
