Okay, I'm sure I'm probably just grasping at straws here, but I'm really really hoping tonight is the night.

I've been feeling crampy the last few nights, but nothing more than that. Tonight is the same. Only more so. Not contracting, but just crampy. Now though I'm starting to feel really restless, like I just need to MOVE. Well walking is torture (I believe I have SPD), so I'm going to go for a drive. I just feel like I can't just sit here. I need to DO something.

I'm hoping that the crampiness combined with increased restlessness is a sign that things are going to progress. Please please please!

I'm back from the drive. So far nothing. Nothing more than the past few nights anyway. Some cramps, a few twinges. That's it. Grrrrrr!

The waiting is horrible. I was really hoping baby would come today or tomorrow, but now I'm hoping baby holds off a few more days, since h had a labrynthitis attack tonight & will be pretty much useless for days until he recovers.

Honey, I am so with you! I have been crampy the last few nights but nothing besides that. I'm glad I'm not the only one going through this! It helps to do this with someone else!

What are you doing right now? Feeling anything? When is your actual due date?

I'm sitting on a birth ball, bouncing a little but in 20 minutes I'm about to lay down and watch a movie. My real due date is the 4th.

I'm not really doing anything right now. Moving is torture. I have a birth ball, but it hurts my knees to much to sit on it, so I've been avoiding it. I think I'll go to bed soon.

As for EDD... hard to say. Somewhere between March 3rd and 15th. I'm *saying* the 15th.

It's 1:22 am my time and I wish someone else were up!

I am pretty sure this is all in my head. I can't figure it out. When I am trying to sleep I am having cramping going on and I feel like I " feel" something but I can't figure out if its all in my head or if maybe Im dreaming!

When I get up, the cramping goes away. So I can't tell if I am making this all up or what the heck is going on, its driving me crazy.

okay, I* think* the cramps are getting worse. I am really struggling with relaxing right now. I'm very tense and I don't know why. I just wish I knew if this was a sign or if something is going ot happen or if this is all in my head.......

Oh, and I felt like something down there " poped" when I was in bed earlier?? But again, could be dreaming or in my head!
