And Nada.... (nothing for those illiterate in Spanish) -Updated
(photo inspired by Isabel's comment... because seriously, what better way to describe this?!)
Well, it's now 1 :21, and we're back to no regular contractions. Granted, I've had several Braxton Hicks all day, but they aren't regular nor do they hurt as the ones this morning did. I'm exhausted, though... even though I slept pretty late this morning on our couch. It looks as if I may have to sleep on the couch from now on, because of my hip pain. It was nice to be able to sleep a little last night after the contractions subsided, and sitting up a little on the couch helped. What would be nicer is for the baby to come.
I just got an e-mail from Forrest, and he said, "I can't wait to come home and be with you tonight! Maybe Shepherd will come!! Wouldn't that be great." Do ya think he's excited too? I know I am. I told him earlier today that I was just frustrated, not because the baby hasn't been born, but because I was honestly prepared yesterday for the baby to be born on his due date. I was okay with waiting. And then, WHAM... contractions 5 minutes or less apart that hurt like crap, and so, I threw all to the wind and was like, WEEEE!! Baby's coming!!!! Only to discover 2 hours later that these contractions did not want to continue. I'm very, very annoyed. So now, I'm back to working on being okay if the baby's not born until his due date... it's just I don't know if I can handle any more of these false starts.. *sigh*
Well, I'm going to go lay down and take a nap. Your "labor vibes" are much coveted, and I would LOVE to deliver tonight... we'll see.
Update: I just took a look at the history charts, and both my brother and I were born 1 day before a full moon. There's a full moon on Saturday... could this mean anything?! ha... I so want it to..... :)
