So yesterday I had contractions basically ALL DAY. I figure I lost MOST of my mucus plug yesterday. (possibly helped along from the internal exam on Thurs to check me?) Anyway there was a LOT of mucus. By 10 at night the contractions were 3-4 minutes apart, lasting more than a minute each, some were not painful, some where getting more painful as the night went on and I realized I was breathing through them without thinking about it. So by midnight when DH got home, I had called the hospital who said when I can't "walk talk or laugh" through them anymore then I should head in. So I called my parents to come and stay with DS, and they got here around 1am. We werent hurrying to the hospital (waiting for water to break or stronger contractions) and all of a sudden they sort of fazed out. So I said I wanted to catch a nap for a couple hours and see. We went to bed around 2am and then DS woke us up at 830 am... DAMN!!!!!! lol I was so sure last night was going to be the night, or at least today... and today I've had NOTHING! Grrrrrr
I woke up with a headache, and since my parents were still here they took DS for the morning and I went back to sleep until noon - woke up and still had a massive headache. I thought I was dehydrated or hungry, so I drank several glasses of water and juice, and had a big lunch. It still didnt go away so I checked my BP at the local pharmacy around 3 and it was 134/88 - a bit high... so I checked it again at 7pm and it was 122/78 ... so back to normal! Phew.
But now I'm a bit bummed. I've had NOTHING all day. the odd BH but no pain to speak of...I guess all the activity yesterday (went to the mall and for a walk and lots of little things) caused all the contractions... I'm hoping maybe it helped thin my cervix a bit?! lol... wishful thinking??
