That afternoon Jeff and I walked for hours and stopwatched every contraction. This lasted through the night, with them getting as close as 7 minutes apart for a few hours. By 2am I was exhausted from the day and we both finally just fell asleep, fully dressed, with our bags packed next to us ready to go.
The next morning we went to see the doctor at 8am. She said the contractions were definitely doing their job and that my stats had progressed. The other good news is, the more my body does during the early labor stage, the smoother things will go at the hospital.
So here I am, just waiting and anticipating what's next.
- I'm still having contractions but they're not as consistent as they were on Tuesday.
- I'm super tired and sore from everything that happened over the last 2 days.
- I'm get exciting thinking that I'm going to meet my son sooner than planned.
- I don't quite know what to do with myself. Being at home now just has me focusing on everything thing my body is feeling. The doctor said to just take it easy, but I feel like I need to go back to work to take my mind off everything. :)
I'll keep you posted... :)
