for sure! *sigh*<br><br>
Well I had cramps in my back all day yesterday...then after the baby shower I started to get belly cramps...then around 8 they started to pick up...at times I could just let them go but then they started to HURT.....walked around the house...chugged water and they didn't ease up....ended up laying on the couch...fell asleep around 3 woke up at 5 to dh getting ready for the day....then got back to sleep little bit later and up at7 to get the kiddos ready....<br><br>
My ds1 last night said "wouldn't it be cool if sister came tomorrow" and all I could think last night please don't let this be labor ....I just wasn't in the mood <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">....I'm still dealing with my back....haven't felt intense belly ones but have sensed some tightening in my lower belly but I've been up moving around ....this is exactly how my labor was with my second son but I wasn't actually paying attention to my body or KNEW what was going on...I labored like this in a hospital for 12 hours and then BAM it picked up and I had him a long hard 13 hours later....my first labor had been an emergency induction so I was new to labor and we were off to the hospital too early....this time I'm aware of my body and it's making me loony.<br><br>
I keep having this feeling in the back of my head that she's coming this week even though I want her to bake till at least next Monday....I need to stay on top of things around the house for sure just in case....now to get the boys to school so I can get in a morning NAP!

Bleh, what a horrible night. I feel for you, mama! I hope you get your nap in. I keep wondering if I'll be "in the mood" for labor too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I had a similar experience about 3 nights ago- I am also 36 weeks and hoping for another week at least! I thought oh GREAT, all my nights are going to be like this until she comes...but suddenly things calmed down and my uterus has been fairly happy over the weekend. I'm hoping all the cramping/braxton hicks maybe worked on some dilation for me- I'm going today for my Group B strep test so I think I'll have the midwife check while she's down there- at least then I'll know!<br><br>
It's so exciting but also incredibly aggravating when you get to this stage and you're always constantly waiting, wondering, and wishing!! Hold on, we're almost done!!!

Isn't it funny we've come this far and then we have these episodes and just aren't in the MOOD to have baby.....Some would think we're CRAZY!!<br><br><br>
yeah with ds2 I had prodromal labor that went on for THREE weeks (and I only dilated to a 1 after that long)...I was in HELL with him...and then when it picked up like last night did (with cramps that made me say OW and take my breath away) is when he finally started to get the clue...and we were on our way out the door.<br><br><br>
My body is SUCH a tease it's ridiculous.
