I'm not sure how this can go on for 3-6 more weeks. Every night I have Braxton-Hicks contractions for an hour or so and then I get massive heart burn. This morning, I started having contractions on my way to work...with the funnest part of that being that I'm having "back labor". For those of you not familiar with this fun term, it basically means that with every contraction, a bloom of pain spreads through the lower back. I can literally feel it start at a central point and then radiate outward (imagine putting a drop of food coloring into a clear glass of water. That's a little of what it feels like).
Every says that I'm probably due any day now, but I'm getting sucked into the mindset of "I don't think I can do this for much longer." The "take one day at a time" mentality is being drowned out by the "I feel like I want to curl up in a ball and die" feeling.
Yes, I'm being dramatic. Yes, I will even say that I'm being ridiculous. Bite me. You go to work every day with a huge kid, have everyone that you run into, from casual acquaintances to perfect strangers tell you how big you are, deal with back pain every twenty minutes or so, and then tell me how you are feeling. I for one, want to go home.
