I guess I have been spoiled with the last two, at least. I went into labor and that was that, I would have a baby a few hours or minutes later. This one has been really challenging. I started having contractions again yesterday evening around 8pm very strong, make ya want to throw up, or run for the hills contractions, and I have been having them all night and into today. They are productive, I can physically feel that they are moving her down, but they are not consistent. Between 2-6 every hour.
Its most frustrating because my hubby works almost 2 hours away, so I don't know if I should summon him home, or if they are going to putter out again. I am getting tired and every time I have a "big" contraction I seem to loose a bit of confidence. Uggh!
My midwife came over last night for my checkup and all is well. I am finally measuring 40weeks and the head is down and ready. I still haven't gained any weight in about 6 weeks, but my body seems to top out at a certain weight and wont go any higher. My iron levels are fantastic, which has always been a huge problem for me. So that is great!
I guess I am just tired and not liking this "new" labor style. I liked having a few really good contractions and saying yep this is it, lets get ready. I feel like I will be in labor for ever, or worse yet she will come with in minutes like Elijah did and I will be here alone with the kids.
I just need to stop worrying and realize that The Lord knows what He is doing and all will be fine. Thank you all for your prayers! Its amazing how special people can be to you when you have never even laid your eyes on them ;-)
