As many of you know, I'm getting pretty close to having my fifth child. My due date is officially this coming Sunday.
Unlike any of my other pregnancies, I've been experiencing lots of Braxton Hicks contractions and prelabor signs. Really, I can't remember having any contractions at all until I'm in the hospital being induced for 3 out of the 4. The other one, my first, started at home and ended at the hospital but my memory of it is clouded by the fact that it was 7 years ago.
During dinner time last night, I was having some pretty consistent contractions and while I didn't really have the patience for doing so, my husband and I began writing down how often the contractions were coming, how strong they were, etc.
My contractions were coming between 2-10 minutes apart and we had listed some of them as "mild", "moderate", "stronger". You get the idea.
Daniel took one look at it and said, "Early Labor Record?! I'm going to make one, too!"
He brought this to us a few minutes later:
Really? "Ninja like" contractions?
(This made Bob and I just about fall down laughing, except that I was having a contraction and holding a sleepy Josiah).
And he wasn't done...
Pray for us as we enter into this time of superheroic measures of contractions!
