Back to Being Pregnant

I woke up early yesterday morning and it was like everything had changed. My body simply gave up on labor. I had had no contractions at all the night before, and I felt more "balanced" than what I had in days. I no longer had this mantra "MUST EXPEL BABY" flowing through my core. I was also physically exhausted and fell back to sleep and didn't wake up until 1:00 p.m.! (Dave was nice enough to let me.)

And so, I feel like I am "just pregnant" again. Of course, there are some added discomforts. Baby is fully descended and that, ummm . . . Well, it is a very unpleasant feeling and makes movement difficult and often very painful. And there are some other unpleasantries that I won't go into, but are all signs that labor and birth are imminent. (Just not right now.)

I will post again tomorrow with the report from the doctor and if we decide to induce.
