    Default Last Day of April!!

    Okay, mamas! May is literally just hours away now... I'm ready to see some more babies around here! No pressure, lol.

    I had my NST after work last night. I had been all crampy and contract-y at work all day, so when I got to my NST, I was excited to see if the contractions would register on the monitor... And they did! I was there about an hour and a half (it takes forever when I have to do it after-hours in L&D) and I contracted regularly the whole time. I didn't think to time them, but they were relatively frequent and kept getting bigger. The nurse wasn't really mentioning them, though, so I assumed they weren't big enough to get too excited about. Finally at the end, she asked me if I felt any contractions. I told her I was, and that some of them were getting a bit uncomfortable. She told me to keep an eye on them and come back in if they got to 3 minutes apart or I couldn't breathe through them.

    I came home all excited, hoping this was it. ...And then they stopped. I was so PO'ed, hahaha.

    So anyway, today has been less exciting. A contraction here and there, but nothing remotely regular and nothing all that painful. Grrrr... I've never gone into labor on my own (my other two were inductions), so I was all excited, but no-go. Maybe I'll get lucky here soon. I see my OB tomorrow and he wants to schedule to induce me next week. I'm not really enthusiastic about it, so we'll see how it goes.

    I just want anything that would convince me it's a contraction...just so I know my uterus works! I really don't know if I have contractions...just some mild, menstrual-like cramping...boring

    Callie - Similar experience here. I've actually had BH's occasionally with all of mine, but nothing like this! It felt like it was really going to turn into REAL contractions. They were coming regularly, getting stronger, registering as good-looking peaks on the monitor... It was awesome!! I've never had the chance to go into labor on my own, and that was literally the only thing my body has ever done that even remotely resembled going into labor. It was exciting! Now if only it would happen for real.

    I just can't believe that May is here! I might be the only one that wants to keep this baby in. I am getting excited though but I really don't plan on anything happening for at least a couple of weeks! Good luck to all you ladies!!! Can't wait to see all the beautiful babies!

    I'm trying to savor it because it's my last one... I'm desperately going to miss the feeling of kicks from the inside. But at the same time, I'm so giddy to see his little face! I was feeling the same way until recently. I've started getting really restless!

    2-3 weeks ago I wanted baby to keep baking for awhile. Since yesterday I've become restless though. My parents are here from halfway across the country and they can't stay forever so, let's get this show on the road!
