anyone else? I hadn't thought of it this way, but I've been having these light-headed type of contractions. not terribly painful, but my friend called them oxygen-suckers...they just suck all the blood oxygen from the rest of your body and redirect to your uterus. Been having them all week.

Now I'm on to more serious contractions, but like, every half hour. I've never had an early baby, but please...#8?! What are we waiting for???

Funny you should mention it because my bx this time around have been weird. Everything tightens a little, even my chest, and I feel lightheaded during them. But I'm carrying much higher this time so that's maybe why. I've also had an awful time this pg with shortness of breath or breathlessness anyway so that's been there as well. Not sure what to expect with labor this time around!
