A week ago Wednesday I had 3 hours worth of practice contractions. They were the first ones I have ever had and it got me so excited because I thought finally my body is getting ready and it's almost time!

Since then I've had some mild BH but nothing else. I'm missing my contractions. I still have 3 weeks to go though, but I'm conviced I'm going at least 2 weeks early.

Am I crazy for missing being in that pain? lol...

I keep wondering what is going on here as I haven't had hardly any bh's. Last time I had quite a bit. What I have had has been very, very mild like I hardly notice them.

hehe yeah your crazy!! but they are exciting... one a side note, i learned 9 years ago this month!! to always think your going late lol, so if you do go early you can be happy and when you go on due date you can be happy but you will be able to deal better when your late LOL

I feel the same way about missing contractions. I have never found them painful (well, the natural ones...pitocin ones were beyond torture) and I like having them. I experience prodromal labor, and keep looking forward to the next bout of them. :

The ones I get when I move to a new position hold me over, though.

My whole family on my mom's side has always gone early, so I guess I'm sort of wishfully thinking that I'll take after them.

I took after them with the large hips and slow metabolism. Why not this, too? ROFL. :P

no! lol I have tons of contractions every day and I love them. After 2 c-secs they are a reminder that my body is getting ready to do this. Now I may change my mind in labor, LOL, but for now I relish the pain of each one.

Nope...when I feel it coming on, I just think, "Yes...Yes...that is good!"
