contractions in the night.

i was super groggy so i don't truly know how many or how often, but i felt like i was having contractions all night last night. they were more intense than the ones i've been having for at least 10 weeks now when i overexert myself. they seem much tighter. it was strange though 'cause it also felt like gray was moving super strong and hard all night last night too. a few of the contractions sent shooting pains down through my pelvis. not every time, but several. i've been sitting down most of the morning, and i'm still having them, but they aren't as intense as they felt last night. i don't know if that's because i'm awake, and they aren't irritating my by rousing me from my sleep or they really are weaker than last night. i don't think i'm in labor or anything, but it's just crazy to think how i'm getting close and my body is practicing and preparing. still 6.5 weeks to D-day, but i know they'll fly even if they feel like they're dragging. i'm going to the doctor on wednesday, and i'll tell her about the night contractions. i wonder if she'll check me for any dilation yet. it'll be my 34-week checkup. any of you girls with adams remember when she starts checking? until then, i'm going to attempt to write stories, get laundry done for our trip over the 4th and get things in some type of order before the play date tomorrow. a nesting/cleaning urge could hit any time now. i could use the motivation...

as soon as i told adams i was having contractions, she checked me. i was way earlier than 34 weeks. she might check just because she wants you to make it to at least 36 weeks. but after that, don't count on any. she's very stubborn in that way. her thinking is, when he's ready, he's ready.

the only time she checked me was the day we had owen. she isn't one to check unless you are having contractions. i second crys' thoughts on this.
