Oh man oh man….I am so close to meeting this little (or not so little) man in my belly that seems to be a full time gymnast. Last night I started tackling my editing list and woke up early to get ready so that I could work right away after taking Charley to school. I woke up a couple times through out the night because of cramps but only had to pee 3 times in the middle of the night, yes I said only 3 and was excited about that. Today I had a busy day in the office I was editing away and noticed that I was having lots of contractions and they were annoying but I was not about to stop editing to time them because I knew that it wasn’t the beginning of “Real” labor. So after I got Charley from school Dave offered to grill the steaks for dinner so I didn’t have to (he is trying to perfect it and become a grill master right now). It was obvious to him that I was not comfortable, I told him I was just having some tighter contractions and some pain…he told me to ask Goldie (my midwife) but I didn’t want to bug her…after a couple more hours I asked her. This is (one of the many reasons) why I absolutely love having a midwife that is so awesome. I ask her via text if pain on top of contractions that is pretty consistant is normal, she asks what kind of pain. I was having a very hard time trying to come up with a nice way to say it… I finally respond, “like a steel rod is stuck in my crotch(occasionally) and across my lower abdomen (pretty consistently) where my underwear line is and the 4 inches above it.” As I sit there for a minute I think I hope she is not thinking I am totally crazy ….. Her response:, “oh okay, then that’s normal! lol” Whew! What a relief…. but after a few more hours I think about how I have never experience full labor and I can’t lie for a few minutes there I kinda freaked out…but then was reminded of what an amazing thing our bodies are and how they know just what to do, and then I grew very excited!
Now I took a shower and went to bed but just woke up because my crazy man will not sit still and since I sat up, I had to pee, and then thought well I might as well eat now too…and if I am going to sit and eat I might as well blog a little.
I have a decent amount of things I still want to do within the next couple days so hopefully he lets me, I’m gonna have to go have a talk with him right now;)
