starting something...

I have felt more irritable today and more swollen etc. Tonight I have been having mild irregular contractions, at first I thought something was happening, but it could be days I guess.
Still, I am freaking out a bit, I really do not feel prepared and my Mom has to come form a distance to watch my daughter if I go into labor and I am hoping that Mia does not miss out on trick-or treating.
I guess I am feeling more dread than anticipation this time.
Also my SO seems to be in denial and not helpful with last minute things, but at least we carved pumpkins tonight and that is done:).

Contractions have tapered off, but I still feel something is afoot,lol!

That's so exciting that things seem to be getting into motion for you! I'm sorry your SO is acting like that... I would smack the crap out of my DH if he did that lol! I think mine is on the more overprotective side. Every time I have a pain down there he's like, "Do we need to go to the hospital?" Lol it's sweet though, I guess...

Exciting!! Although I feel the same about Halloween as you- my kids would be pretty dissapointed if they had to skip trick or treating! So let's hope for slow progression until after 8 pm on Halloween!~

Hope baby comes at just the right time for you Smile I'm sure Mia can still get her trick-r-treating in just fine, surely it will work out. Are there also friends or playgroup or anyone who might help with that for an hour or two? Sorry your SO isn't being so helpful at the moment, wish we could all pop by to give him a shake & a smack Wink

haha! Feel free to give him a snack, he is going on an errand to pick up some musical equipment he left at our friends the other night and he will not even take our daughter to give me a break...grr!!

No contractions anymore, hopefully I will make it until tomorrow at 8pm:D. Tomorrow is my Due Date and last time I went into labor at around 9 pm the night before my duedate.

Eh... had a few minor contractions, but nothing big. I do feel my belly is lower and I think I have lost some of my MP.
But I really am afraid to clean my house,lol, that may tip me over the edge after my longish dog walk today.

My last started after a small trickle of water breaking and no contractions until after that, but who knows, I just hope to wait until after trick-or treating:)

Keep them legs closed!!! Biggrin LOL! That's what I am doing! As soon as I do any activity, I start having pressure and some contractions. Hopefully you will go in after the fun of Halloween!!

haaha! That is exactly what I thought last night after I had some extreme sharp pressurein my cervix and I felt I was going to pop for sure!:D
Will try to keep it chill for sure or at least take breaks, but I really wanted to sweep and mop. The worst is picking up toys, I always feel crampy after that

I hear ya. I use my feet to pick things up or I ask the kids for help .:D

I also get that enormous pressure feeling like my belly will burst any second. Weird, isn't it?
