Aaarrggghhhhh!

Okay - so technically I am early. And as of Friday, when the doc told me he thinks I will definitely go early, I was excited, but still thought - I just want my little Adalyn safe, so whenever she is ready, I am just fine with that!

That was then... ;)

So on Friday night, I had a couple random contractions. Not a big deal, just enough to start to get me excited. Then on Saturday morning, another milestone (I'll let you all guess in your mind what). Then Saturday afternoon - A LOT of contractions. Including some pretty painful ones. Greg and I got all packed up and ready to go, gave the house a good vaccuum, and then went on a walk. Still contractions.... But not getting worse, necessarily.... Then the night came, a couple painful contractions, and just steady contracting. Then the morning came. I thought - this is definitely it! And at 6 in the morning, NOTHING. Just plain stopped.

Then Sunday day came, a few more contractions, but nothing to freak out about quite yet. Then last night - LOTS of contractions. They even got more steady and started taking on a pattern. And, they started to get more painful. This morning, from 5-7, they really started to get more intense. So, I once again got things ready to go and was thisclose to going to the hospital - and WHAM, no more contractions. After some tears of disappointment and frustration, I went to work - and then Today, a few more contractions here and there, but I am just sitting at work doing my thing.

SO FRUSTRATING! I know I am early, so I really shouldn't care, or be this excited - but this going back and forth, back and forth is SO emotionally exhausting. Plus, add raging hormones to that list, and I am a real fun treat to be around at this moment!

So - that was then, this is now - I WANT HER HERE!!!!!!!!!!! And I have lost my patience! So, with this new knowledge.... any guesses on when she will come? Also, any stories that can help calm me down and give me patience?

I know just how you feel. It's that bitter sweet, I'm so tired of contracting but worried that everything will be ok. Do the deed a few times and walk alot if you want her here!!! I bet shes here by Friday!!

drink some Castor Oil.
works like a champ if your body is ready for labor.
you only need to drink like 2 tbs.
i drank it plain then just drank like grape juice afterwards. it was gross, but it did help!!!
**** Just so you know, it will more than likely give you diarrhea... but it will also, more than likely put you into labor! :)

Stories! Remember your friend down in Arizona who went 21 days over!! Just remember that when you have gone early! Is that a good enough story?
