In a world with a 4 year old, a 3 year old, a 16 month old, a 3 month old and two soldiers you never know what misadventures await. Life is always springing the unexpected and I want to share them with you. Welcome to my world.
I started contracting yesterday afternoon after having crazy menstrual like cramps following my bloody show the day before. I started contracting around 2 yesterday afternoon and they were lasting about the same amount of time each time, but the intervals weren't all the same. So, we waited. My Hubby was at work and we really couldn't afford for him to take work off unless it was necessary. I was absolutely miserable all night. I couldn't sleep a wink thanks to the cramping and contractions. I did manage to doze for about 45 mins around midnight, but couldn't sleep again until another 30 min snooze around 9:30. The horrible thing with these contractions is that sometimes they'd ease off a bit and go a while without having one just by switching positions, but most of the time it didn't matter if I was on one side or the other, sitting or standing. By the time my Hubby got home this morning they'd slowed considerably and eventually went away. I'm still really crampy and achy, so I'm keeping up the TP watch for bleeding, but with having a more definitive plan for when she'll be here I don't feel quite as stressed about being done as I did prior to Tuesday. The end is in sight and I can really deal with this knowing that.
