Total # of contractions today (probably still BH) = 2
But they were more intense then I've felt so far and were definitely noticeable. Each lasted about a minute and were, oh, 3 or 4 hours apart. Certainly not frantic hospital-leaving material. Other Braxton-Hicks contractions haven't been noticeable at all unless I happen to feel my tummy.
It's been said that sudden bursts of energy focused on major cleaning projects mean labor is imminent. I can't imagine suddenly feeling like scrubbing the floors on my hands and knees at any point in my life - especially pregnancy. The only things I have sudden bursts of are naps and sitting down whenever I pass a chair (especially the computer chair.)
Kate, on the other hand, is all about the sudden bursts of energy. I wonder what this means for her outside the womb. Will she be just as active?
Hmm. Am having another contraction now. Much shorter than the others though.
I'd prefer to go into labor during the day. Waking up in the middle of the night to pain and then navigating the house and freeway and cold, night time hospital buildings in the dark seems less friendly. But I'm fine with whatever Kate wants.
It's funny how daily life keeps on going even though this major life-changing event is just hanging over your head, ready to go at any moment. This waiting and anticipation is good for me, the person who likes to control. Already Kate is testing my limits. =)
