I might just be in early labor right now. It’s been three hours of relatively manageable short contractions, every 4-6 minutes. Now they’re starting to get a little more intense, so I figured I’d better get this written before they get too strong.
It’s possible this will fizzle out, but at the moment it doesn’t feel like it. My mom is coming up to watch Cordy for us, and my doula is at the ready.
What finally brought this on? Well, if you ask Aaron, he’d tell you zombies. We went walking downtown early this evening to see the Zombie Walk, hoping that all the walking would help push me into labor. It might have worked – contractions started about an hour after we got home.
So, updates will hopefully be coming soon, either from me or Aaron. I’m going to be really embarrassed if this is a false alarm, but for now, we’ll assume I’m in early labor. Think good thoughts for a quick and successful VBAC.
2:45am edit – Pretty sure this is the real thing. And I can now say for certain that a Tylenol could never mask this pain.
