Yes, it's 5:10 am. I've been awake off and on since 1 am when I woke up with the worst cramps of my life. Yes, it seemed as though contractions were coming strong and hard every 5 minutes (some as little as 3 minutes apart). We timed them for an hour, and then both started drifting off to sleep between each one. We decided to TRY to get some sleep, so back to bed we went. I managed to eventually get back to sleep, only to find the contractions begin to die down again. Yes, I'd wake up to a pretty strong one every now and then, but nothing that was as regular as the 5 minute ones we'd been having for an hour. I know that it's not false labor, because, these suckers were hurting. And the few that I have still, still hurt. Maybe my body is just doing funny things... I don't know. I'm so hesitant to get excited about anything now that we've had 2 false alarms. I know that I'll "know" when I'm in labor, it's just right now, we're sort of in between... and I can't sleep. I've tried to go back to sleep, but my hips hurt so bad that I can hardly lay on my side. Forrest has gone back to sleep because I told him he needed to rest in case the contractions completely stop and he has to go to work.
Y'all..... send some contraction vibes my way, because I'm tired of this stop and start labor/whatever the heck it is.
