41 Weeks + 2 Day

I thought that this was the day. I woke up at 4 this morning with contractions. The real kind, not the Braxton Hicks that I have had for months. I timed them for a little while, but they weren't coming at any regular intervals, so I went back to sleep. I woke up at 5:30 and 7 and was still having them, so I told Jeromy he should stay home from work today. When I got up this morning, everything stopped. No more contractions. I know that this is normal for alot of women, but I have never had labor start and stop before. I start having contractions and then they get worse until I have a baby. I think that I am still having some here and there, but they aren't getting worse. Actually I was just on the phone with a friend and started feeling them again and as I write this, I am feeling more. This could still be the day. I could still have a March baby. What a bummer to have a birthday on April 1st, so we will hope she comes before midnight. Maybe my midwife would be generous with the time and say 11:59 pm. The baby would never have to know :) Stay tuned.

Maybe I shouldn't comment. :) Don't go looking at my birth stories at this point. :)
