i woke up this morning feeling very different. I have really unpleasant lower back pain and periodically feel like someone is trying to pry my legs out of my hip sockets.
i feel really different, protective of myself, i don't want to be around people (of course working in my yarn shop is making this really easy...) and i've been coming kinda unhinged emotionally all day.
i really hope it's just an emotional day, and not labor because i have to train my last new employee tomorrow. i had to fire the woman who was going to be covering for my maternity leave because i just found out she was robbing me blind (i mean, embezzling from me... cough) I tried to get the baby to agree to not come out until tomorrow after work, but i don't think she's listening to me anymore.
oy. when people say contractions feel different than the braxton hicks, exactly what are we talking about. right now i feel like i'm on some sort of torture rack having my legs popped off. luckily when people come in and chat me up i feel a bit better, so i know it's still early if anything.
i hate to say that i just need to get through tomorrow and then i'll be fine, but it would be really nice if this lasted a few days so i could still train my last new employee. i also have a midwife appt scheduled for tomorrow at 8am, which is a relief.
