Well, Thursday night I had contractions every 5-7 minutes from 11 p.m. on. I went to the doctor this morning thinking for sure I was in labor only to find that I was still barely dilated and as uncomfortable as the contractions have been they haven't been strong enough to push me into labor - I was very sad to hear this and also very tired since I hadn't slept at all the night before. The dr. said I can take some tylenol pm to help me sleep so I did that and was able to get a couple hours of sleep. I was awoken several times by contractions but they were much farther a part. So, now we're just waiting for more painful contractions - lovely! I'm pretty uncomfortable right now and feel like I'm kind of in limbo being on the "edge" of labor! We're praying that my water will break so I will know for sure that I'm in labor rather than spend the weekend with these mini contractions.
Hopfully baby James will be here sooner rather than later!
