A little trickster

This baby is driving me crazy! It has been getting my hopes up every day this week only to crush them. Today was especially annoying. For the past couple nights I have been having contractions and they are pretty good ones too. They woke me up at four this morning and I was thinking it would be the big day but of course they stopped. Then in church today I had strong contractions every five to seven minutes all through Sunday school and Young Womens. I really thought I was going into labor until I got home and now they have stopped :( It must have been sitting on a hard chair for three hours and now that I am home on the soft couch the baby seems to think it no longer wants to come out.
I am not due until Wednesday so I shouldn't get my hopes up, but it would be a lot easier to be patient if I would stop having hard steady contractions every five minutes for two hours straight only for them to stop. Little stinker!

That sucks! That is what happened to me! I started having some contractions on tues. night. After an hour they completely stopped! Then I woke up at 4:30 on wed. morning having them 5-6 min. apart. I was stoked. Got my house super clean all my laundry done, bags packed, got out of the shower, and I realized they'd stopped! So I got on the treadmill and later, they started again!

I definitely feel for you it really gets annoying when you just want to be done but the baby is just content hanging out in the belly..... Just think you are finally there and the worst is almost over.... Good luck with everything and hope it is not too much longer....

Julie, i keep seeing that you've posted and i click on it with excitment hoping it will be a post saying the little man has arived but then my hopes are dashed when it isn't. i hate the waiting game the last few weeks, it gets so frustrating waiting on your body. i had several false alarms with both kids, once with Payten i had joe come home from work cuz i was thinking that it was time and the dr had stripped me that morning and once he finally got home they stopped. i'm sorry! at least you are at this point and not just starting. good luck!! i'm still going to be excited every time i see you post something. maybe next time i wont be disapointed. :)

I know how you feel. I suggest a few million laps around the couch when you feel them coming. I did it and Trevin was born the next morning.

Holy Cow! I can't believe you are due so soon! It seems like time went by so fast..I guess since I've been gone. Well good luck! Let us know when you have it and how everything goes. I am soo sad I can't be there to see you all and the new little baby. You better just post lots of pics for me! Good luck with everything!
