39 weeks, 5 days - OW.

So I went to the doctor today. 1 cm dilated and very soft. She said something else but I can't remember it because at the time the deafening roar of AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH had me fully distracted. I let her strip my membranes. YEOWCH.

Since then? Mucus plug gone. (Well, of course, you know.) It can certainly put itself back though. I bet it will. Very sore everything down there. Achey, pressurey, contracty, crampy.

And now I'm timing the contractions because they do hurt a little right now, BUT! They sortof come and go. THIS IS A FALSE ALARM. DO NOT GET EXCITED. They're only a little bit painful. I just want to document this on the off chance it does turn into anything, which it won't, but just in case. JUST IN CASE, I SAID.

They started while Nana and I were in the kitchen this evening - she was working on dinner of steak and gravy, rice, broccoli, sliced tomatoes and sweet corn. I was making banana bread for Al to take to the office tomorrow.

And I've written down three now.

They do have a regular pattern.

CALM DOWN! It's a false alarm.
