I just walked across the street to get a drink for my lunch and a bird pooped on my arm. That's good luck, right? Combined with the vaguely crampy feeling I've had all morning, maybe I'm actually starting to dialate!
Yes! the 'ol Bird pooping on your arm, sign of labor!!! Yay!
Hope it happens soon for you!
I think that a bird pooping on you is good luck in a lot of other countries. I hope this means that you'll be having your baby soon, too.
I spent nearly the entire night awake with some pretty frequent contractions. Around 4 AM, I was starting to have to breathe through them, so I decided to get up and have a snack and a shower and then wake my husband to hold my hand. AND THEY TOTALLY STOPPED.
Pretty annoying to lose a whole night of sleep, but at least I can truly believe that something is happening now.
I'm happy things are starting up for you. And yay for bird poop!

Oh, Erin ((hugs)) that's exactly what happened to me for a week with Lilah! So many times I was SURE this was it, we got the birth pool filled, etc., and then the ctx. would just STOP. So frustrating and tiring. Hang in there. The real thing is bound to happen eventually!
Happy Visakha Bucha Day, everybody! It is yet another holiday weekend here in Thailand... I have been trying to do some "me" things and some family things this weekend, and so I have been very busy. I've been to two movies, a book club and karaoke with my friends and/or husband and some play dates with Clementine. I think this afternoon I will either take Clementine to the aquarium or go for a massage. Decisions, decisions...
Nothing terribly exciting is happening with my body, but I am in good spirits about that. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning and on Wednesday my parents will be here! I am so excited to see them. I visited them over the winter holidays, but I can't wait for them to see how different and awesome Clementine is now. And I think it will definitely make a difference in my comfort level if they are here to take care of Clementine while I am in the hospital. Hopefully, I will be able to relax and enjoy my first few days with my son without worrying so much about what is happening at home.
