Yesterday's post, if you can call it that, was posted from Mr. Jem's Kindle.Fire. I was able only to post the title, no text for some weird reason. At least you all knew that I'm still alive, Baby Jem still in utero. She could come any day now, and has significantly less room to wiggle around in. She has not yet dropped.
That said, my Braxon-Hicks contractions have intensified and are no longer localized like previously. Instead my whole belly gets very hard and I can feel a menstrual-like pain from my diaphragm to my cervix. It took my breath away, but didn't HURT that much.
Is this the mysterious labor contraction I hear speak of?
The nurse and my doula both say that when I have a "real" contraction, I will know it.
The Doula recommended that I take a relaxing bath, which I will do shortly. I did also take a short walk, which helped.
I have so much to catch you all up on. I have not written much, as my MIL has been visiting. There's been some drama, mostly related to the hateful SIL, but really Mr. Jem being stressed out by MIL's visit and SIL's sneakiness getting $$ out of the MIL, who is losing her memory and feel she has to buy SIL's love. Sigh.
I really don't need that drama right now for F's sake.
I promise to write more later... especially how and why we selected a doula.
