 I have been having light contractions on and off all day. They last for awhile and then go away and then I have another episode. Feel like tightening, and while I notice them, I can still pretty much distract myself. I am not convinced that they will necessarily turn into anything but I think I should head to bed just in case. This is exactly how my labor with DS started, 5 days over my due date, and with light contractions that progressively got harder. I had this feeling that baby would be born sometime between the 12th and 14th. Part of me thinks this might be it... but I don't want to get too excited yet.  DH is sleeping already, he really needs to get his rest, he has been feeling sick all day. I hope he;s better in the morning. Let my midwife know something might be starting. I hope I can turn my brain off and sleep.

 Nope. Continued for a while after I laid down. Slept fitfully, because I kept thinking and because DH is sick and was tossing and turning and up several times to the toilet. DS woke up crying a few times and I barely had the energy to get him back to sleep. I may try to nap later today. Ate a good breakfast, and am trying to curb my grumpiness. DH is running to the toilet this morning with diarrhea, so maybe it's just as well. I want him to get better, before baby decides to make an appearance. I have an appointment with my midwives this afternoon. Maybe there will be more to update after. Still feel like it has to be soon, next couple days I hope.
