    Holy Crap! I totally was NOT expecting to see this when I came on to this board!

    Thanks guys.

    I'm in such a sour mood today.

    I started labor-like contractions yesterday, felt much like the prodromal labor I'd gone through with both my boys. Constant, AF type cramping with frequent contractions coming about every 8 minutes, lasting an average of 1 minute each, varying in intensity and this lasted for an hour before I called my doc. I was pretty certain it was just the prodromal labor starting.. but considering I wasn't quite 36 weeks (am today, though)....

    She had me come into her office for a check. The litmus paper said I was not leaking amniotic fluid (I wasn't sure due to it being a hot day and I was sweating a bit down there). She then checked my cervix for progress. On Friday the 22nd I was a fingertip dilated, about 75% long and VERY soft. Yesterday I was 1cm, about the same length, and still VERY soft.

    She then told me that she wants me to not deliver until 37 weeks at least, so she put me on "Please can you wait a week" rest.

    I came home from the appointment excited and frustrated and feeling rather rebellious.

    I had a decent "wack-out" moment last night at bed time and forced myself to listen to my hypnobirthing hypnosis track to try and relax myself to sleep. I continued to have contractions, but they slowed to about every 20 minutes or so and I was able to sleep through most of them. I woke up around 2am having to pee like crazy and had a couple of contractions. I was then WIDE awake and took a bowl of cereal into the nursery and sat in the glider rocker and had a little, quiet pep talk with the baby.

    So as not to disturb my hubby (who still thinks we're gonna make it to September) I went back to bed after a short while and laid there unable to sleep.

    I woke up rather disappointed and kinda sad. I've been too "bummed" to even make coffee. I've totally got a "what's the point" attitude towards my being on "rest" this week and I'd LOVE to just go crazy with cleaning, but I'm trying to be a good girl and not do much like my doc asked.

    One of the things DH said last night while I was trying not to explode was "if we can't go on your birthday date this weekend, it's not my fault". AAAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGHHH!

    I have just a plethora of emotions raging through my body right now. Someone please take my kids so I can deal with them and move on!

    Welcome to your lodge, Janelle! I hope the baby's able to hang in there for at least a couple more weeks.

    Welcome to your lodge! It is crazy to me that someone on MY BB has a lodge! Are we really that close??

    I hope the contractions pipe down for you. I know how annoying those long, drawn out, early contrax can be.
