I just need a little whiny-space. I'm 40w+2 today. I've never even made it to 40w before so this is new territory for me. I've been trying to be at peace with it all but it's hard cause I'm physically very uncomfortable at this point: baby is very low and has been sitting low for weeks now. I'm crampy, my hips are achy and so is my lower back. I have a whopping two skirts that fit and maybe three shirts. Pants are out, unless I want to show off my ginormous belly. So, I'm trying to be chill and laid back and reminding myself that 40+2 isn't really *that* late yada, yada.
This morning I woke up to bloody show and regular contractions. For three hours, I contracted every 7 minutes, some I could barely move through. My folks took the kids, I went for a walk. I tried to do other things so my mind wouldn't be too focused on early labor. Then I did too much and got tired so I took a little nap. And everything STOPPED. As in completely, utterly, absolutely stopped. So here I sit waiting indefinitely again for a baby who apparently doesn't want to be born. Argh!!!!
