So I’m admittedly in the ansy waiting phase of my pregnant and driving myself crazy.
There have been a lot of changes in the past few days. Daiton dropped a bit (not fully engaged yet) and Emerie is lower too but still transverse. I’m having more cramps daily and contractions that are different than before.
Today I decided to walk around a lot and while doing so I felt more pressure in my pelvis than I have before, the shear weight of the babies is enough to make me stop for a break every other minute, but I pushed on for a few hours. Thank goodness for compression stockings!
Now I’m at home and I’m getting regular contractions, they are shorter than in the past and happening every 5 minutes so far. I’m getting cramps with some but not all of them and my back is killing me.
What was the beginning of your labor like? I keep getting this feeling that my water won’t break and that my contractions won’t be the “norm” and will lead me to now knowing when to go to L&D. I don’t want to go in for no reason and my OB is out of town this week.
