Was that something? Let the questions begin!
Today I am 37w3d. Last night I woke up to an uncomfortable contraction, followed shortly after by another uncomfortable contraction... I have been having more frequent Braxton Hicks or "practice" contractions lately, which is totally normal for a persona at my stage in pregnancy. I notice, however, that when I have a contraction at night time, and I am laying down, and if I have to pee, then the contractions are stronger feeling. Not painful, just stronger. But last night, they hurt. 2 in a row. I jumped (yeh, right, wriggled, squirmed, whatever) out of bed to go potty. I found myself thinking, as I sat on the toilet, "should I call the midwife?". Then I must have snapped back to reality because I bonked myself on my forhead with my head, thinking to myself that if I had to ask myself if I should call the midwife, then it ws not time to call. I have full faith and onfidence that I WILL KNOW when I am in labor. I went back to bed without another thought and awoke this morning to the cozy little wiggles of the wee babe in my belly.
