Ignore Me. I'm Just Trying to Keep Everything Documented.

So today was basiclaly one loooooooooooooooooooooooong and unending Braxton Hicks contraction with some periody crampy feelings thrown in, and fatigue, and nausea. (Although that didn't stop me from eating, so HA! on you, nausea.)

Peanut is moving a lot and drilling himself into my cervix. I wish I had a crystal ball just this once so I'd know what was going to happen next. I have always had a weird inkling that 7/28 (tomorrow) would be the day, but that doesn't seem likely right now.

I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow, but not until late afternoon. If nothing major happens between now and then, I'll update after the appointment. Night!

Ooh megan, so close now! Your little Peanut will be here when he's ready, I hope it's soon for your sake, but if it's not, just remember it's only because he finds living in his mummy so comfy and doesn't want to leave just yet! ;) Will keep my eyes glued here - well to my RSS feed, for more updates.

Hope you're coping, especially if it's as hot over there as it is in England right now! xx

My first one dropped down so low a week before she was born, the only way I could be "comfortable" was to sit. That relieved the pressure of her head pressing down on some bone I didn't know I had until then. I was practically begging the doctor to do SOMETHING. Memories...

This will all be over soon!!!

Ohhhhhhh!! I am so excited (and slightly jealous). I never had the pleasure of experiencing the stages that lead up to labor. I bet, as uncomfortable as it is, it is also really really cool to know your body and your baby are kicking it into gear. Go Woman!!!

Hey Peanut - my husband won't be too upset to share his birthday with you - if you don't want to come today, then come July 29th (his birthday) - or you could come on my son's birthday - August 1st - either way, just come. And quickly. Mama's ready.

This is the first time I've looked at your pregnancy blog; I can't believe I've been remiss, but you've shared a lot in your other writings.
Here's hoping you continue to feel well and your son arrives healthy in the next week or so! I'm off to my OB this afternoon, too; I'm at 29 weeks now.
Best to you and your family.

Wow.. You're close!!

I really hate those Braxton-Hicks contractions. I can't imagine having one that lasted so long. Ugh.

Hmmm... guess I'll be imagining that soon enough, though, huh? Heehee.
