Year 2 Day 78: What's the Frequency...?
Contractions started just before noon today. They have been pretty inconsistent in both duration and frequency, but thankfully I have an application on my G1 which allows me to keep track of each individual one as well as log it to compare to others. I will know that when the contractions are at least lasting one minute in duration and 5 minutes or less apart, then it will finally be time to hop in the car and head to the hospital to meet my "outside" baby.
It looks like many soothing baths and showers are in my future because at the moment, my belly feels as though it may BURST!
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
