I started having labor pains in the middle of the night- around 1:15 this morning. I've been really trying to will this baby to come. They went on for about 2 hours, really erratic but nothing too painful or that I could time. I was so excited thinking that he would probably be here by the afternoon. I ended up falling asleep and then they were gone. Xander is playing with my emotions! Now my back is killing me! So, 6 more days and I'm growing more impatient with each day! I think I've gotten spoiled because by this time with Donovan, I was leaving the hospital as he was 8 days early.
My friend is due today (Donovan's godfather's wife)- this is their first child. I called her today so I could have someone to comiserate with and guess what, the same thing happened to her at almost the same time!! How weird is that? She said her contractions lasted about an hour, then they were gone and then she was up for a few hours. No baby for her either.
I have a doctor's appointment Monday- so we'll see what happens!
