Four Days And Counting...If This Is The Real Thing...

Hello friends!

It's finally Friday!

Allow me to finish my title..."If this is the real sure is taking a long time."

So, I have been having contractions since 3:30 this afternoon, and I finally started to time them a few hours ago.

Every twenty minutes or so with each one lasting about one minute. They don't hurt.

I finished reading my book.

I took a bath.

I asked my husband to take me to MacDonald's for a twist cone, but it was almost too late.

I called my mom...just in case they suddenly speed up into something.


I was thinking, "Hey, I could sleep through this."

Then it occurred to me that that's probably what happened in the last labor.

See, I awoke at 6:30 in the morning to this really sharp contraction. Well, for all I know I could have been having contractions in my sleep all night long and just didn't wake up until they started getting much stronger.

Hmmm...maybe I'll go to sleep tonight and then wake up in the middle of the night to the "real" thing.

I told my husband, "Nothing's happening."

He corrected me, "No, yesterday nothing was happening. Something is happening now."

So, I amended it, "ok, something is happening, but it's taking forever."

But, I will say, I got the house cleaned today, laundry done. And, now, I have had bath so I don't stink when I go into the delivery room.

I was even thinking about re-painting my toe nails, so those look fresh too. But I'm not sure I feel like it.

"Wait...see? there's another one."

I can't recall when the last one happened. I've given up keeping track. Maybe when they actually hurt, I will start again. But by then I just may be asleep.

Well, I think I may keep the computer on tonight so I don't have to reboot it to tell everyone that I'm going to the hospital.

If I go in that is.

Otherwise, I hope you all have a great weekend. The sun finally came out today. It was a beautiful day!

Enjoy your day!
