First of all, thank you so much for the kind comments about pregnancy and medication. It's such a sore spot and guilty feeling right now that those really helped a lot. I appreciate it.
Had a new experience this morning. I actually slept for a good chunk of the night (thank you, medication - it was a nice feeling), but the contractions actually decided to start at about 4am. That was new. Usually, this is the time they start to taper off. By 6am they were regular and 3 minutes apart and stayed that way until about 7am when they became irregular again.
I have to say, the weirdest feeling is to watch and time these things and wonder each time, "is this it?" With them starting in the morning and becoming more frequent and timeable, I really thought we might be on our way to have our little girl, but, of course, my body took that opportunity to just say "gotcha!" We're getting very close to 35 weeks now (tomorrow according to the ticker on this website and Sunday by my doctor's calendar), so I'm feeling pretty good about thinking that it could happen at any time without worrying too much about if there will be any problems. Again, Katie was 36 weeks, so the closer we are to that, the better I feel.
Right now, there's a lot of pressure, but no clear contractions, so it doesn't appear as though today will be the big day (but as soon as I say that, you know what could happen ;). Going to take it easy and rest because I am sore from the round this morning, but I'm thankful for the little break right now.
