I was leaving for work this morning and couldn't believe my eyes!!! A beautiful rainbow appeared right over our neighborhood!!! In December! I took it as a positive sign from God and it really put me in a good mood for the rest of my drive in to work.
Speaking of signs, I am experiencing what I would describe as the start of some type of contractions. Unfortunately, I think they are going to be the kind that just stick around for awhile just to annoy me and get my hopes up. I have been having constant Braxton Hicks for the past two nights, certainly the most action I have felt yet. Some of them even hurt pretty bad, but nevertheless, sporadic and not time able. I even called the doctor tonight to ask her about it. I felt extremely silly doing so but I just wanted to make sure that the cramping I was feeling wasn't a sign that something was wrong with the baby. She assured me that it was not real labor but just my body gearing up for the main event. I am still sitting here on my couch with my bump all balled up like a rock and cramped but no other signs to speak of. I had my internal on Monday and my progress report was pathetic! Not even dilated, 25% effaced, and the baby hasn't dropped at all. This is going to be a long two weeks.
