40 Weeks + 2 Days

Saturday, December 01, 2007
Is it possible that I'll be pregnant forever? I'm beginning to think so. I didn't have any contractions or uterine activity of any kind yesterday, so what a long day November the 30th was for me! However, I did start to feel cramping sensations & a few contractions before I fell asleep last night, then I woke up at 2AM this morning with semi-painful contractions that were coming every 6 minutes. My first thought was, "Okay, now THIS is the real thing." I got up and started picking up the house a little, then made myself a bagel. I had to pause while spreading the cream cheese for a contraction...but, like before, they dwindled, then disappeared around 4:30AM, at which time I was able to fall back asleep. It was nice to get at least SOME sleep last night!

I attended a shower for a friend this morning, and had a good time. I met a couple of Moms that have given birth naturally & it was encouraging to me to discuss their birth stories with them. Also, it was nice to get out of the house and focus on something other than the pregnancy, although that was what I ended up talking about with just about everyone I met there. My friend had a beautiful shower, and it was a lot of fun. I'm excited for her...she is also expecting a daughter.

Anyway, similar to yesterday, I haven't had any contractions today...just feelings of cervical pressure & being very pregnant. I had thought today might be the day, and what a great day to give birth with the morning snow we had & it being the first day of the month. But, December 1st will not be her birth day...

I wonder what tonight will bring...the pregnancy experience certainly is mysterious.

Ooh! I've had some cervical pressure today, too! I'm hoping it means she's at least dropped. Otherwise I've only had the mildest of cramps today. I never knew that waiting could be so frustrating! I'm just sooooo dreading the idea of being induced.
