Relieved....

Yesterday I had a ton of contractions. I blame the full moon as I'm still over a month away from delivery. I hadn't felt baby move in close to 24 hours. Today he's finally moving again but oy I hate those feelings esepcially since my mom nearly lost my sister at this point when the cord got tied around her neck.

Its funny you mention the full moon. Its on Monday and thats when a lot of people think ill have the baby lol. I totally can relate about the less movements. There are days where mine has more sleepy days, and after his heart rate drops the other week, i still get nervous. My doc told me that at this point you arent going to get the big kicks and punches because there just isnt the space. Also, they are developing more of the sleep pattern they will have once they are out. So, it makes sense that there are days, and times, they are more active, and others that they aren't Smile

yes, my baby is moving around less too, i have noticed this week.

you know what else is funny - there is supposed to be that hurricane coming (i guess depending on where you live) - but my Mom always tells me that when i was born many women that were close to their due dates went into labor because there was a hurricane that same time that i was born - they say the barometric pressure dropped and caused many women to go into labor early around the hurricane, my mom was like "omg what if the same thing happens to you that happened to me with you!" i came 2 weeks early - which really isn't all that early, but it was earlier than she had expected!

yes, a drop in barometric pressure can mean a busy maternity ward, at least according to the nurses at the hospital i will go to.

Glad the contractions stopped! My little girl was soooooo calm earlier this week. I felt just enough very slight movements to know she was alive. I'm pretty sure it was due to her position. She finally went head down, had her back to me, and apparently needed a break. Blum 3
