Deliver Me

I'm right at 31 weeks...and up until Sunday I was feeling fantastic. Starting Saturday night, into all day Sunday though, I had cramps in my lower abs.

Nothing regular, and nothing quite like contractions, since my whole belly wasn't getting in on the action, but every so often, everything would clench up and it would feel like someone had stabbed me.

It went on ALL DAY.

Needless to say, by Sunday night, I felt like I had done 1000 crunches. Which isn't fair, since I had not done 1000 crunches.

Today I took it really easy and mostly just sat around doing work on the computer (which I REALLY needed to catch up on) and my stomach acted much more nicely to me. So far I have only have the pains come a few times.

I see the doctor tomorrow morning, so for sure I'll be talking to them about the pains I have been having and what they might mean.

I have to admit, I'm terrified of coming early again. Little Dude was only 2 weeks early, which was really nothing, but it was so very scary when JR ended up coming an entire month early. Now I'm right around 2 months away from my due date (April 13th), and I want so very badly to keep this little guy growing until the end of March. Even better-the beginning of April. I'm really nervous about it, even though I realize I should just do what I can, and then leave the rest to God.

It is just so hard to not worry about delivering early, especially now that I'm having all these weird cramps. We are so close to being done and I'm just crossing my fingers we can keep going.

Maybe it's just braxton-hicks? I've had a couple lately and my doc said it wasn't a big deal as long as they stopped and didn't get more intense. Stay in there, Champ!!!

I'm sure there are ladies at 42 weeks shaking their fists at you for wishing to be pregnant longer! lol. But I hope he doesn't come scary-early.
