Tra La La.....

Hi everyone. How are you? What is going on? No one got you all panicked last night, did they? No one called their mom and got her on the first plane out in the morning, right? No one called her neighbors and friends and got everyone all lined up for preschool and parent pick up did they? Because NOTHING is going on now. It is 5 a.m. and I'm just up having my usual pregnancy insomnia snack and feeling my completely relaxed uterus. I feel as though nothing happened last night.

The doctor came in and offered to break my water and get things going, but I resisted. Especially once we all realized I hadn't had a contraction in 12 minutes and everything seemed to have died down. But, man, was I tempted to just get this show on the road when he offered that.

So, uhhh....back to our regular scheduled programming of whining and eating.

Oh I am so sorry? relieved? Which ever one you are feeling. Call me after you get this, I am up. Hang on, 1 cm in less than 5 hours..Only 7 more to go!

I'm sorry! But it will be so soon. This part is the hardest, longest part of pregnancy if you ask me. Hang in there.

Angie said...

Totally understand the temptation to get things going. Thinking of you.

I can't believe you declined! What nerves of STEEL you have, girl. Way to go!

Hey, at least your mom will be there soon!

I have no personal experience w/false labor. But, would say most of my friends have and I've heard how frustrating it can be. But, at least you're progressing nicely w/o unbareable discomfort, right? Your doula has probably told you to eat well, conserve energy, try to relax your whole body/mind and drink lots fluids - that's all I know to do.

I'm thinking of you!
