So, because first two children were early, I never had the pleasure of experiencing Braxton Hicks contractions. And now I think I have at least twice. Last Monday, I was having contractions for about an hour and then they just stopped. And then today, I was having contractions for what seemed like almost two hours and then they just stopped. It's so frustrating! I just start to hope that "this is it!" and then it's right back to nothing.
I wanted to take a walk this morning (I was up early anyway), but after putting a load of laundry in the dryer, another load in the washer, and emptying and filling the dishwasher, my back hurt so much I didn't think I could even get out to the stairs that lead to the apartments above us. Maybe tomorrow. And I also need to find a bumpy road and eat some blueberries and pineapple.
