hello,
i'm going nuts, i think! my due date was 9/1 and i've been having very mild contractions since monday. yesterday i felt like they increased slightly in intensity but they're still irregular. i only experienced them in the night last night when i changed position or got up to go to the bathroom (but you know how often that can be!) i was up worrying that stuff was going to get rolling in the middle of the night, and we have no childcare closeby and we'd have to wake the kids and bring them to the hosp (it would have all worked out, i'm sure, but i was not thinking clearly). anyway, now its morning and i dont know what to think! i have lots of very watery discharge, and maybe now a tinge of pink, but ctxns haven't really started up again. i guess i better get walking again today, or try nipple stimulation..... but i had "false" labor last week and it was so frustrating to focus a day on ctxns that ended up going nowhere. i'll have this baby soon....but i'm getting sick of feeling like that proverbial watched pot that never boils!!

ack, sorry, i'm just complaining. i'm sure you are all dealing with similar uncertainties and whatnot. thanks for listening to my gripe!

Tout va s'arranger à la fin. Si elle ne fonctionne pas; ce n'est pas la fin.
