Contractions

Since yesterday I've been having contractions...not the usual braxton hicks. I haven't really been timing them or anything, but they seem to be within 5-10 mins? They around my lower abdomen and in my back. They aren't super painful, but definitely don't feel good. I wonder if these are going to do anything, well I know they are doing something, but are they leading anywhere soon? Will I have Chloe soon or will I be having these contrax for another 3 to 4 weeks? I'm getting nervous. Deep breaths. I'll be 36 weeks on Saturday!!!

Well if your going to have her early, 36 weeks seems like a safe time... (at least that is what my midwife told me, I know it is different for everyone)

Now whether you got the car seat and such ready, is a whole other story :-)

For your sake, if they aren't real, I do hope they subside and you get some rest.

They always told me to lay on my side during one and if it went away then it wasn't "real" if it stayed, then I could start counting.

What is your midwife saying??

Well, they have calmed down quite a bit. I only had a few today. My midwife suggested I start taking some extra calcium and magnesium supplements so I started that last night. She also recommended taking a benadryl which I also did. Hopefully I'll be able to keep Chloe in here for a couple more weeks. I know 36 weeks is pretty safe, but I have 5lb babies...so I worry she would be super tiny.

I'm hoping to get the carseat tomorrow! :)
