It is 2 days before the due date and we are anxiously awaiting our little Emma LeAnne. Although not quite so anxious for the experience that will bring her into this world. I have been dialated to a 1 and 50% effaced for the last 2 1/2 weeks with no change!
So far I have only felt two contractions, but I do have them daily - all day long. It seems I am a little different from most woman ( besides my mom) in that I don't feel contractions, but My Belly tightens and the only way I even know that it is a contraction is to touch my belly and feel how tight it is. I do feel a lot of lower pressure. I had suspected these were contractions but was not sure. We were at the hospital a couple weeks ago for some monitoring and they confirmed that I had a five minute contraction that I never even felt. Most people tell me how lucky I am.... But being the worrier that I am, I just hope I feel enough pain early enough to get me to the hospital. My doctor has told me to forego the usual waiting at home for 3-4 hours, she said as soon as I feel anything to go to the hospital.
I have tried a few different times to get our ultrasound pictures up but to no avail... The website keeps erroring on me! They are now up!
