Not all prodromal it seems.. [Jul. 12th, 2006|09:53 pm]
So it looks like last night's labour was at least somewhat productive. I'm not sure exactly how far apart the contractions were, but they started in my lower back and radiated around to my belly. They mostly stayed below my belly button, although I did have one or two of the all-front ones.

I got up around 3am after getting Adia settled back to sleep, because I was STARVING. My uterus and back were sore, so I assume I contracted through those 1.5-2 hours of sleep. I made a bowl of scrambled eggs (praying through contractions that the eggs wouldn't burn while I swayed in labour-land.) I was up until 5-ish when I passed back out again in bed. (Not pass-out pass-out, but was so tired I couldn't be bothered to stay awake through contractions.) I slept in until after 8. When I got up, NOTHING was going on. I swear it felt like I'd imagined it all.

I checked myself, and my cervix is super-short and fairly dilated. I've also been losing bloody mucus plug all day! The contractions started again around 5:45 or so, and they've been really sporadic since then, but the plug-loss has increased. I'm predicting I'll go before my next appointment on Sunday. The whole birth team has been alerted, so they're good to go.
