Contraction-traction, what’s the action?

By  | 

The title is an ode to School House Rock. Which is still awesome.

Anyway, I have been having erratic contractions. It all started thursday. I began getting only two, maybe 3 an hour. Then they went away for a while. Then I woke up around every hour or so to one. My stomach was as hard as a rock and I got that weird breathing.

By morning I had one an hour. Then none by noon. Since then I have had a few more. I actually just had one. I don’t know if it is just something with me but I am beginning to tell when one is coming on because my breathing becomes a little shallow. Not like I am gasping, but just a little short of breath, like some weight has been put on my chest. Then I put my hand on my belly and sure enough it gets super tight for a minute or so, then relaxes. I get little twinges of pain too, on one side or another or low in my belly. I’m not having any back labor, but my back hurts all the time anyway. Still no pattern though.

I am wondering if this is still BH or early onset of labor. No mucous or bleeding… TMI my bowels are moving a bit better. Sorry lol

Other than that, my days have been uneventful. The biggest thing that happened today was my washing machine broke today. Luckily it’s owned by the owner so I just had to shoot a quick email and a repairman will be here to fix it. Bad thing is I have a few more things to wash before the babies get here but no biggie.

Oh, and when it broke I didn’t cry!!!

I have been craving birthday cake all weekend. Since it’s on Monday I won’t have to wait long for my white cake with strawberry filling and whipped cream frosting. Yummmmmm….

GD is still fine. Actually normal now. I even strayed from the GD diet and got normal levels. Hallelujah I’m cured!!
