Cross Your Fingers!


So for the better part of the last few hours, I've had a sore back and no amount of moving can make me comfortable. Not back pain but like I've overworked the muscles. Discomfort in my pelvis like I need to poop but I can't, a VERY quiet baby for the last 24 hours and some tightening across my belly which I know aren't Braxton Hicks. It's either baby on the move or early labour. I'm not getting too excited though just in case.

I think this might be ladies! I've just had that constant pain in my lower back and my bump getting tight since around 3pm. It hasn't eased up and has picked up a little where I THINK I am feeling early contractions because they have a peak and slowly die off. Every 10-15 minutes give or take. But I'm still walking okay though my pelvis feels heavier than it did earlier, I can still drive (just) and I can still speak though I do have to stop on occasion when things get tight. So I've feed the rabbit, the cats, made Alexander's 3 bottles for tomorrow morning, afternoon nap and bed as well as put a couple of bottles of chilled water in the fridge for him too. Going to hit the shower because I'm dripping wet in sweat (damn heatwave) and hoping I can manage a bowl of ice-cream, some Netflix and some sleep before I NEED to ring the other half.

As for arrangements, I've got a friend on standby to come be with Alexander if we need to head in later tonite and MIL will come take over when she's done what she needs to do tomorrow morning. I've done it that way because I'm not f**king around with installing a Diono into another car while in labour. And with that arrangement with MIL, I am prepared to give hubby's 'sister' another chance BUT that starts with her NOT being in my home while I'm not here. I've said MIL only because I've been funny with people in my home since a home invasion years ago and she's welcome to meet baby but that is on my terms as to when. I want 2-3 days at home with just the kids father and my children before immediate family visit for a bit which 'hubby' supports then I will see how I feel with everyone else. Though they will only be short visits and by arrangements only.

So as luck would have it, pulling around my bump, hips, back and in my vagina, pressure, discomfort for the better part of 11 hours - 3pm-2am. I sucked it up, carried on with life and did what I needed to do because I'm pretty good with pain. So I thought I'd get some sleep in because let's face it, when Push Day happens we need ALL the strength we can get right? Was expecting to be woken up by contractions between 4am-6am this morning. So I wake up at 8am and realize that all this has not done anything! So damn defeated. 11 hours of that and something should have happened!

It will happen, donít worry! Mine did this silly stop start thing last time, itís so frustrating. Try to sleep as much as possible so you arenít too exhausted when it finally kicks off!

Just so over our NZ Summer at the moment. It's too damn hot for me at the best of times and being pregnant isn't helping that fact. I hope he's here in the next 24 hours. I have a GP appointment I don't really want to change. It's taken almost a couple of weeks to get it because they have been so busy.

THe same thing happened to me the day before I had my second son.
I had rushes all day on and off and then they picked up at like 8pm they were 5 minutes apart and I was throwing up and couldn’t get off the toilet until midnight when finally that stopped so I went back into bed fell asleep around 2 got woken a few times then woke in the morning and nothing.
I had my appointment the next morning I was 40+1 and I was 5cm dilated 100% effaced and bulging waters and I had him just after 2am the next morning.
As much as it sucks just think of all the work that is being done before the big finale.
