Friday Night Leftovers (The Saturday Inactive Labor Edition)

•I was exhausted yesterday and decided to sleep instead of blog. No, I wasn't in the hospital having a baby.

•I woke up and got really sick this morning and was having painful cramps.

•I went to my prenatal massage anyway. I figured that nothing I do will make this baby come any sooner than he is supposed to.

•Massage was wonderful! My cramps were more painful on the way home.

•I took a two hour nap (actually almost three but it took forever to drift off) and when I woke up my cramps were still going on.

•On the way to the pharmacy (which I got there minutes after they closed), I realized that I was actually having contractions!

•I've been timing them and they seem to be slowing down now. They are 6-12 minutes apart (closer to 10-11 now), and lasting about 30 seconds. I'm going to go walk around and see if they will pick up. They are a bit painful and radiate to my back.

•I'm hoping I don't get back labor, but right now that outlook isn't so good.

•Okay, they so they were slowing down. Back to closer to six-seven minutes. Woo hoo! Come on little man, if you are coming!

•Fingers crossed for no days worth of prodromal labor, like I had with Alice!

If you want more leftovers, go see Danifred and all the other participants, who actually got their leftovers done on time!
