Yesterday I was sure I was starting into labor. The baby was so eerily quiet during the morning hours that I started to get a little concerned, but as the day went on the little one woke up. I can only imagine that the baby is completely out of room and nestled into a fairly comfortable position. The movements I feel now are little squirms and adjustments, signs, I believe, that the baby is in position and just waiting like me.
I felt very uncomfortable throughout most of the day. My back ached, I was very crampy, and I started to have regular and sometimes painful contractions, especially as evening progressed. By bedtime I thought I would be woken up in the middle of the night in full-on labor. However, not so. I actually slept very well and awoke this morning to just a few intermittent contractions and a quiet baby again.
So the waiting continues...is it just me or does this seem like the longest countdown ever?
