After our nesting on Saturday, we sat down to watch the NC State vs. Wake Forest basketball game. (Go Pack!!!) Somewhere during the last 10 minutes or so, I started to feel... weird. I honestly can't describe it, but it was like my back hurt, but not sharp pains... and my abdomen hurt, but not sharp pains. I couldn't put my finger on it, and just chalked it up to indigestion or something.
Sunday, we woke up to go to church. Before we left, I noticed I was having some cramping down low. The cramping would start in my back, and work it's way around to my front. I told Forrest I just didn't feel comfortable enough to drive all the way to our church (45 minutes) and be that far from home if something were to happen. So, I laid down on our couch, and began timing the "contraction-ish" types of pains. They were coming every 20 minutes, but they weren't too painful as long as I remembered to breathe through them. I ended up falling asleep doing this. I woke up about an hour later, and moved back to the bedroom where I slept some more. I made a decision at that point to stay in bed or on the couch the rest of the day because, I'm not quite 36 weeks yet, and I want this baby to be as healthy as possible!! The rest of the day went smoothly, and we watched Pittsburg whalloop Denver, and then the Seahawks cream Carolina (*pout*). We watched a totaly of 6 1/2 hours of football, so it's no wonder that all I dreamed about last night was football and having a baby.
Another thing that has developed has been the increase in my trips to the bathroom. I can almost set my watch to it. Every hour, I have to get up and go. No exceptions. Last night, it was 10:45, 11:45, 12:45, 1:45, 2:45, 3:45, 4:45, and amazingly, I missed the 5 o'clock hour, and woke at 6:05 am. Do you know how incredibly frustrating that can be when you're pregnant? You have to roll out of bed, waddle to the bathroom (which hurts because monster-baby is sittting directly on my pelvic bone), and then waddle back to bed, crawl back in bed...I am SO tired of getting up to use the bathroom, I'm seriously considering buying some Depends... or at least begging the doctor for a catheter or something!!! I can't wait for the day that I can sleep for 2 hours without having to run to the bathroom immediately when I wake up.
Anyways, this post hasn't been the most coherent post. Perhaps it's because I feel like a walking zombie without much sleep. I'm gonna go back to bed folks...
