middle of the night madness

really, it wasnt the MIDDLE of the night but around 6am I woke up in a ton of pain... my lower abdomen and back were cramping up really bad and I just knew that this was the start of my "labor pains" and that I was going to have a baby TODAY!  That lasted all of an hour (which seemed like 3 or 4)-- all the time I'm thinking,
OMG my bag isn't ready, oh well... I'll just grab some clothes and go.  Should I go ahead and get up and shower so when I'm reallllly in pain I will at least have that out of the way?  When do I wake the hubby up? Should I make a list of people I need to call even though I already know who I want to call? .................... {yes, this went on for about an HOUR!} haha

I finally forced myself back to sleep hoping that if "today was the day" then I would at least be a little more rested since I had stayed up until nearly 2 am because I just couldn't get to sleep! haha  Needless to say, I woke up around 10am and was no longer in pain {wheph, but bummer? is it possible to feel both of those emotions at once? I think yes, because I was so excited about meeting her but a nervous wreck to not be completely
prepared ha}

I had my 38 week checkup today in which the doctor said to expect more of the same and he might be seeing me soon or maybe in a couple of weeks (thanks, that's helpful!) ha! 


  1. WOW!!! That must mean you're getting close!!! Has your doctor checked to see if you've dialated at all yet?!

  2. I can't believe you are so close to meeting her!! I can only imagine how you feel :) It seems like it was just yesterday that you were posting about your pregnancy news! so crazy :)

  3. Oh those pre-labor/false labor stuff is sooo not fun! I get them for about 3-4 weeks before birth. I always get my hopes up. Hang int there. She'll be here before you know it!

  4. I had those pains, too!! It wasn't long after that Brynlee joined us :-)
