That's more like it!

Well, I don't want to be overly optimistic here, but it is after midnight which makes me officially eight days overdue. The only difference between tonight and last night is that I have been having a lot of contractions this evening, and they have been quite consistent. So, I am now wondering whether we are finally on to something. Perhaps a middle-of-the-night trip to labor and delivery may be in order, but then again, maybe not. It is impossible to say this early. I would say this is definitely pre-labor, but how long it will last is anybody's guess. It could go on for days, or I could have this baby before the sun comes up in the morning. Wow. What a thought.

Baby scared me a bit this evening, when I realized I hadn't felt him/her move for a long time. I had to drink some iced tea and lay down on my left side for a while, and finally I got a good swift kick. Now the baby is wide awake, probably thanks to the caffeine in the iced tea. Hm. Maybe that wasn't the best idea, but I was really worried so I had to check on him/her.

Anyway, time to settle down and try to get some sleep, just in case this is going to be the day. Wow. Wouldn't that be amazing?! This gives me hope. I'm going to cry if I wake up in the morning with no contractions. Goodnight.
