Just survived my first proper bout of spurious labour/false labour/ prodromal labour/ whatever you feel like calling it. And I did it! No tears, no tantrums, I didn't shout at anyone, just kept contracting and letting whatever happened happened, and I feel SO FREAKING PROUD of myself... (hurt a bit, though. I hate this bit of pregnancy...)<br>
Then, of course, DH discovered that the wii is broken, probably as a result of the boys continually destroying the TV cabinet, and somehow the mood was broken, but hey, who cares? I did it....

I think I'm still going to be pregnant in March at this rate. But I don't care, because now, hours after it's all over, I'm getting a heady rush of nice hormones <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> It's not fair...<br>
I can do this. I can, I can, I can. But please, not 42 days of it...

34 days until 42 weeks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I know it probably seems like I'm being a drama queen, but - yuck. I hate this bit...

Whisht! The last one went to 42, the first one went to 43.5. The last thing I need is my kids getting competitive over late they can be born, it's already a battle to see who's last out of the house in the morning... 42 weeks will do nicely, though I'd like 40 better. TBH, 38 sounds pretty good right now.<br>
Anyone got any bright ideas how to move a head off a trapped nerve? Inversion isn't working, I think it's flexed funny...

I'm glad you got through it ok! This last bit is very difficult I think for those of us mamas who've already had a few babes; seems like the false labor gets worse each time. With ds2 I was in the hospital at 36 weeks contracting literally every 3-4 minutes for an entire night. NO cervical change. Crazy, isn't it?

Yep. It has to be said, though, I'm a lot less miserable this time than I was the last month with Skye... (which could be because I'm only 37 weeks pregnant and the month of beautiful birth stories didn't start until 38. But don't remind me of that, huh?)<br>
Oh- the solution to a trapped nerve is to get your husband to tuck you up in bed, moving your leg despite your screams of agony until you're finally in a comfortable position and then fall asleep without moving. I love him <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb">

Yeah, we did that too, at 3am, once I got my legs back <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> TBH, whilst I'm still niggling on and off, I still feel like supermarket fruit- looks promising, but you just KNOW that it's not really ripe yet. I have a sinking feeling that I'm in this for the long haul.

I haven't <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Isaac stole the yarn I was planning on using, pointed to Laughing Carrots and said "that, please." Sleep is more important- besides, I'm nowhere near finished baby knitting.<br>
Bad day. If you go by my emotions, I'm fully dilated and in transition, despite the total lack of progress. It's probably a good thing I can't find a metal crochet hook, otherwise I'd be trying DIY amniotomy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
