Surprisingly I have been really calm. My contractions started at about noon (the 14th) but I secretly think it is all psychosomatic. I was missing my family like crazy and I knew that if I went into labor then they would be forced to come spend time with me.
I sat in the pool for a while yesterday with my gatorade (our cute friends have the best pool and their fridge is STOCKED with every one of my favorite drinks: gatorade, vitamin water and lemonade). When I open their fridge or freezer the song ‘hallelujah’ starts playing as I look at all of the beautiful choices, Billy seems to think this is all in my head though.
I have felt really good and calm about everything even though I don’t have a bag packed (just a suitcase of randomness from my flight), I am pretty tired from all of the moving and I have never met my doctor. Something just feels right about everything and I am already looking forward to having a real excuse for once to not wash my hair for a while and to eat hospital food (you have to admit, unlimited pudding cups are really delicious).
For dinner our incredible hosts picked up TOGO’s because it is now my favorite food in the world. 1 of 3 sandwiches I tried: Avocado and turkey, turkey and cranberry and egg sandwich.
We finally got a car seat last night so we are officially prepared now. We also bought some onesies because I was really smart and packed all of the baby stuff in the POD:)
Who knows? These could totally be false contractions but if they are then I don’t want to know what the real ones feel like. I haven’t slept all night (I did take two awesome long baths, catch up on every show on hulu and eat another sandwich) and my contractions are still 6 minutes apart (last night at ten o’clock they were 7 minutes apart) and they are getting MUCH stronger. Maybe a short little jog will get things going. Billy has class from 9-12 (of course he will miss class if she comes soon) and I am really hoping he can make his classes and then I deliver at 12:05:)
