Baby Update


I did not mean to leave ya'll hanging.
But, I had nothing to report.
Until Now...

I had (more than Braxton) contractions starting at 3pm yesterday. They were consistent in coming but they were 30 minutes apart. We ate dinner and then I took a HOT shower. (Showers will either take away the contractions or really bring them on.) I had 2 more while in the shower. I continued to have them after the shower. My midwife said if this is pre-labor it would be good to get rest before the "real thing" hits. 
She encouraged me to go to bed. 
I did.

This is when the party began. 
Little man was "movin' and a groovin'".
So much so, I could not get to sleep.
And I had no more contractions.
His party ended around 10:30 and
I went to sleep.

UNTIL...
3 am
Then they started coming again. This time they were every 10 minutes.
The contractions lasted 30-45 seconds and were painful.
They stopped at 5am.
I went to sleep.

So here I am today...
still pregnant.

I will get a few more things done today -
(including a nap)
and be ready to hold this "little man"
SOON!

Thanks for all of your prayers and sweet comments/emails/texts.

Good morning to you!
Well, we have been praying so it is nice to hear how things are!
Must say...it's the sweet lil-guys who keep Momma wondering the last few day (or weeks)?
Looking forward to see a pic soon! :)
Blessings & prayers~

So exciting!!!! Praying for your safe delivery! It sounds like your body is doing all the work ahead of time, so it should be quick!

Oh, you poor thing. I did that with my daughter (3rd baby)...praying all of this early stuff moves things along nicely for you and you end up with an easy delivery! Praying for you.

Thank you for the update :-)

Sounds like my labor when it started. I am praying for all sorts of things for you, God's presence there with you while in labor, easy/quick/labor, health for the baby and you Mama.

Sooo excited for you!!

Man, it seems that we have been going through some of the same things. Did you see my post yesterday? I thought I was going to give birth Monday night/Tuesday morning (even went to hospital) but here I am will him snuggly inside.

At least, we know that our little ones will be here soon!
