living on the edge.

i've been living on the edge this week. i am so pregnant. and SO over it. i've been unreasonably emotional and in so much pain... my hips are just aching, and it seriously feels like someone knocked my vagina out... if that makes any sense. then i had two nights of contractions, the second night was so painful i was CONVINCED i was in labor, i mean breathing through them and about to call my midwife when all of sudden ... THEY STOPPED. not cool. then the next morning both days my uterus was like insanely sensitive to the touch (like when arabella came in and climbed on top of me) like i had worked out all day the day before, but with my uterus, which i guess kind of had. both night the contractions were 2-3 minutes apart... the first night they lasted for 8 hours and the second night for four. weird. i'm officially NOT patient AT ALL. i want her to come, and NOW.

anyway in all of my crazy emotionalness, and being unreasonable and tired and lazy and a little sad seth has been ridiculously sweet and amazing. just doing whatever he can to help me feel ok. making me food, bringing me things i need when we're in bed, coming home to help me with arabella.... i couldn't even live without him.

I know how much that "false" labor sucks. I seriously went through days of it before Faye came... and it wore me out like crazy. I would wake up the next morning and be like, "Are you kidding me?! I'm still pregnant!" It was crazy. And the weird thing is... the night she was born, I wasn't even sure if it was real labor, so that might happen to you. Be ready. False labor and real labor felt exactly the same for me.

I know how it feels to have your vagina knocked out.
