These contractions are really flipping painful. But they will taper off after a few hours, as they have all the past two weeks. I was completely against pain meds but now I am so exhausted from dealing with this pain, I would get an epidural right this minute if it were an option! Plus I'm so worn out that I think getting one may be the only way I will get through labor at all.
I go to the doctor tomorrow. I'm hoping I'm super dilated so he will just do whatever to push me over the edge of this cliff I've been teetering on the edge of for 17 days now.
