Could it be? An actual real contraction? Huzzah!

This morning, around 4 am, I went pee. Nothing new and exciting there. That happens pretty much every morning at 4 am (and 2 am, and midnight, and you get the idea). But, then... When I came back to bed and laid down I felt something a bit funny. I think it just might have been the first contraction I have actually felt. My midwives say I've probably been having them, just not noticing them (which is a nice thing). This time, though, I did notice it. Yay, progress! I have heard that contractions kind of feel like cramps when you are on your period. Not so much for me. That probably has something to do with the fact that my period cramps make me feel like I'm dying for about 10 minutes straight. This was more what I wish period cramps feel like. Of course, this was just one and I'm sure they will get about a septillion times worse. After it was over Judah started moving around like cray-zee! There were fists and elbows and knees and feet flying everywhere.

I think maybe I've felt one or two more besides that, but that 4am one was definitely the most noticeable. Makes me realize, I really need to get my butt in gear! Report cards need to get done- NOW. Hospital bag needs to get packed- NOW (even though it is really The Birthing Inn bag, but that doesn't have the same ring to it). Car seat needs to be put in the car- NOW.

Shit could really get serious here. At. Any. Time.

Of course, watch, now that I have written all this, Judah won't show up for another month.
Knock on wood. No one wants that to happen.

I promise I am go, go, going on report cards and he's going to promise to wait until I'm done. Right? Right??
