I woke, as usual, about 1:30am. I decided to get out of bed and see if they continued while I moved about and got into different positions. I let the dog out and they were continual. But they were not something I couldn’t function through. They didn’t stop me in my tracks. I stayed up for a couple of hours and played canasta on Pogo.com (so love that game) and then went to bed on the couch. It is more comfortable because of how it tilts my body.
I took Katie to school and worked on my special project I am working on. I talked to people on the phone and on line and then got ready for the day. I went off to Amber’s house and had a great time chatting. I was there about an hour and we were sitting in the living room and BAM! on came a hard, hard contraction. I was actually excited, though I could not function at all with it. It faded and another one came on. This one I tried to move into a new position to see if it would relieve the pain a bit. It was intense and brought tears to my eyes. Amber saw it… But then they stopped, in that intensity. Just had the normal ones I have at night. Not that painful really.
So, now I know that THAT is what I am looking for. Extremely painful contractions for an hour… that I can recognize and I can do… I can do this right? I don’t know… but I am going to give it a try, that is for sure!!
