so yesterday my body took a long break. i didn't have any notable contractions from 8am to 4pm. i had a few last evening and a real good one today. they are not in a rhythm or anything, so it doesnt mean i'm in real labor or anything like that. but it does mean that my body is still working on getting there which is good news.
Derek's parents arrive at noon tomorrow so i'm going to prepare for their arrival. we had to arrange for my brother to pick them up so that if i do go into labor then derek won't be really far away from me.
i have begun having nice long walks for the last 3 days, so i will continue that today and also do some grocery shopping.
i know so many people are excited for me to go into labor, but i am telling myself i have between 2 and 12 days to go so that i don't have such a disappointing experience like i had yesterday. we'll see what happens.
one friend commented that its pretty weird that i'm wishing pain on myself (labor) but hey, can't wait to meet the little one :D
i had about an hour of really nasty contractions that almost made me cry. those are the ones i need to have more of. i just came back from a vigorous walk so we'll see what happens. i'm not trying to be too optimistic of it happening today/tomorrow but we'll see.
