Hopefully less. I should have mentioned this earlier, but I didn't go to the hospital to find out it was false labor, I just had terrible contractions for two hours that were ten minutes apart in the middle of the night. When it came time to get up I did. By the time I ate breakfast, the cycle had stopped, darn it. I'm sure you're all sick of hearing me complain that she hasn't come yet. I'm sure there's something else I could write about. Unfortunately, right now, I have a one track mind...and that mind is set on when this baby is going to grace us with her presence.
I walked for a good hour and a half yesterday...to the point that my body is very sore today. I walked down a long path by the river with Love, my Mom, and my little brother constantly swatting at the swarm of mosquitoes and gnats. I walked and walked through the pain in my lower back and the contractions that happened every so often. Feeling invaded by bugs by the time I got home, I showered and even took time to blow dry my hair...hoping that all that walking and bug swatting had gotten us somewhere. As you can tell, it was all for nothing as I am here at work...procrastinating as I write this post. I really appreciate all your supportive comments...I will rest...and I will hang in there...and I will continue to hope each and every day that she will come. The good news is, if I don't have her before then, I am scheduled to be induced on Monday, June 30th. So, if all else fails, she'll be here in less than a week. Whew!!!
