About 2 hours ago I started with contrax about 4 minutes apart. I am not able to stand upright through them. It is actually impossible! I called the doctor and she said I should start coming in when they get really uncomfortable and/or when I feel ready. I was able to get in the shower and that was nice. So far positioning and our Bradley techniques have really helped a ton. I'm amazed at how "normal" I feel in between contractions. I get a nice break. It's not at all like being induced. That sucked in every sense of the word.<br><br>
My biggest issue now, is if I go in and I'm like a 2, I will leave! And of course I'm worried about DS being away from us all night, we've never left him and I don't like that! *sigh* But I know it will all be ok, either way. I'll update you later, whatever happens!<br><br>

I went in and went home. You can see the update in my post about prodromal labor. As of tonight, Saturday evening, not much happening. My son gave me hellacious contrax while he was nursing to sleep, but they pretty much stop when he is done. Oh well! I had a rough day mentally and emotionally, this is just so hard... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:
