No sleep for the weary.

Saturday, April 25, 2009

Sorry you guys, I should have clarified what type of contractions I'm having.

I am very excited by the contractions and the obvious losing of the MP, since I've had literally no evidence of contractions . . . until last night/now.

However, they are very irregular real contractions. Although they have not subsided in the past 12 hours, they have ranged fthe gamut of 5 to 10 minutes apart . . . which I why I'm excited, I have them, they have to be doing something, but they're not consistent enough to be REALLY excited about yet.

I was literally up all night because they were so frequent I couldn't exactly sleep through them, finally attempting to sleep again at 6 am. I got a good two hours in . . . we'll see what today holds.
Oh and there was additional dilation at my appointment on Thursday. I was at a solid 2 cm, with Baby Bless' head nice and low at a -1 station, but still extremely thick.

I'm frightened to think about what a 'MP' is [and there I thought I was getting so much better with the preggo talk!], but YAY!

Do you still need to hold off until April 26? One more day, baby. I'm still pulling for Monday, though.

Do you have to go to the doc to check things out now? Or just sit tight? I'll be thinking of you!

Leah, I am so very excited for you. It's weird, even though I read your updates and I see your weekly pictures, It hasn't sunk in for me that you are having this baby ANY day now!!!
I'll be praying for you, that your delivery and recovery are quick, and for a healthy beautiful baby. I can't wait to see him! =)

Great news! My friend had these sort of contractions like this for a about a week and then she had a 45 minute labor! So, labor at home as much as you can and get online for one of those contraction calculators...

You'll do great! I can't believe this time is already here! AHHHHH, I'm so excited!!!!
