More babies born!!!!!

We had good sleep wake cycles last night. Probably 2.5 hours of sleep before nursing im hoping its a new night time pattern!!
I locked the door so they wouldn't be able to open it anyways. If they had come and bothered me there I would have had to grab keys and drive somewhere. I just... man, I can't handle them at all. Just hearing their voices makes me tense up and brings on anxiety for me.

for more babies and double for good sleep last night!!! Hope that continues for you!!!

Well folks, this baby is taking me for a ride, that's for sure. I have never had any type of noticeable BH contractions with my other pregnancies, and this one is making me question whether I will even know when it's the real deal. I was up til almost 3 am, and was ready to wake DH. I figured I would try to sleep one more time, and sure enough, I fell asleep. Boo.

Stacey FWIW, I had those with Levi, too - very real feeling, timeable (apparently) BH contractions. I did know when it was real labor though, even though I really worried I wouldn't!

It's can be hard when early labor seems to come and go, but at the same time, it's nice to have a gradual build up rather than a crazy fast experience (in my opinion, anyway)...

I've been having stronger contractions since 5:30am today, but they are only about 15-20 min apart......

I've never had a fast experience with laboring, even with the gradual contractions over the weeks prior to. Ah well, just not how my body does it.

for you with those contractions, though - hope they'll pick up!

So I hear but I've always woken up to 5 minute toe curling contractions!

It's really hard when they are just crossing over from uncomfortable to kind of painful. Really they are all contractions its just a matter of whether they are causing labor to progress or not

I have always had the toe curling 3-5 minute apart contractions too. Never a gradual build up. Just wham bam LABOUR! Longest experience was my first at six hours, and half was pushing. The other two were just over three hours from start to finish. This baby is freaking me out!

I've never had that gradual build up either. When contractions start, they are about 3-5 minutes apart for me too. Today is my EDD! We are going to go for a walk to the tree farm, and I think I may do some yard work.

Re: Chat Thread ~ Mar 31st - APRIL 6th!!!

I had contractions last weekend.. they were....12ish minutes apart for a little while, but not painful. And then random.

haven't had them all week.... that's what's weird to me.. sorta thought they'd start and just continue until the real deal.

am hoping it's more like 'bam! labor!' than a day of measureable contractions far apart though.

feeling good... it's raining.. blah.

went to the commissary today.. was risky since that's where my water broke with DD on her EDD... but I guess it was safe since tomorrow is my EDD with Star

planning out the menu for the week this morning and DH is all 'I don't know why you're bothering, you're going to go into labor tomorrow - don't buy anything perishable'. And I'm just like, I hope you're right.. but we could legitimately have another week of being pregnant.

I don't even want to get my hopes up. Better to be in denial.
