Yes... Contractions. Last night I was laying on the couch and began to feel extreme pain and tightening between my hip bones! I could barely stand up and was telling Brandon I didn't know WHAT was going on. I layed down in bed on my back and there was like a hard ball between my hips. (I always thought contractions were up around the belly button) It went away after about 1 minute. But sure enough... an hour later, it happened again! I was beginning to worry. Finally, I fell asleep. I woke up 4 times in the night with these pains. I called my Dr. and she said that after hearing my description it sounded like contractions and baby moving from breech to head down. It has been breech the entire pregnancy. :) She said as long as there was no blood, pain while urinating, or lack of baby movement I should be fine. She was very assuring and said she would look for me if I was worried. I told her I would call on Monday. Preterm labor could be a possibility but if it was, it would be coming more often. SO... all in all I am finally feeling the pain. I can't imagine them being WAY worse than this! AHHHHHHH!!!!

wow! i've heard of braxton hicks starting at that point in pregnancy but ouch! so sorry you had to go through that. hopefully it will be the last of it till he/she comes! i'll bet you'll be happy to have gone though it though if it means the baby isn't breech anymore. woohoo! see you in a couple weeks. looking forward to seeing the inside of that cake!
