This morning I had a really strange contraction. Up until now I’ve had typical BH contractions where my entire belly tightens up and it’s not painful in the least bit. They actually feel kinda good, but I can’t explain to you why.
Then this morning as I was laying in bed trying to muster the motivation to get out of bed, I had a severe sharp pain at the bottom of my belly that lasted about a minute. And I guess I was heavy breathing because Shane woke up and asked if I was having a real contraction. I didn’t think it was a real contraction since it was so painful and that just isn’t how labor starts off, or at least it hasn’t for me.
And after the pain subsided, I tried to roll on my back and couldn’t because I would get the sharp intense pain again. Shane had to get up and roll me over. It’s been 5 hours and I haven’t had another like that but I notice that my BH contractions are now on my lower belly and not the entire belly.
It’s funny how I had the audacity to think that I would actually know what is going on with this labor. As if doing it three times previously means anything. It seems kids really do like to remind us parents that we know nothing. Just when you think you’ve figured it out, you realize you havn’t.
Since I’m almost a week overdue for a prenatal visit, I scheduled an appointment for tomorrow morning at 9am. Won’t it be exciting if I’m actually dilated a little!? I can’t wait to meet Eliza!!!
