Practice Contractions

Last night baby was bouncing around inside me for a good two hours.  I didn't even bother counting kicks; there were definitely enough.  Along with the movement I began feeling contractions.  They lasted about thirty minutes, and I knew they had to be Braxton Hicks because it's way too early for me to be in labor.  They were uncomfortable though and coming every minute or two.  It reminded me of laboring with Desmond.  Oh yeah, this doesn't feel good.  Feeling practice contractions made me feel excited and nervous at the same time.  The painful parts of labor fade away over time and it's been five and a half years since I've felt contractions.  This reminded me of the pain.  It gets quite intense.  I really just hope my labor can start and finish all within 24 hours this time.  I can last that long, but the pain and lack of sleep wear on me once day two is in full swing.

I finally got up, drank some water and washed the dishes.  Everything was calm and quiet after that.  I am glad I'm not going into labor this early.  The house isn't clean, groceries are only half purchased, and I don't have my packing list, babysitter info, or birth announcement set up yet.  Better get some of those things checked off my list soon.
