Pre-labor Of Love

Today marks the 34th week and 4th day of Baby Rod's life. Non-stress tests have commenced twice a week until delivery. I have hypothyroidism, which is why I have to be monitored. Fortunately, he is nice and healthy and developing just fine.  Actually, I'd say he is developing rather swiftly and enthusiastically, as today's ultra sound revealed he currently measures at about 6 lbs.

Due date wrong, perhaps? That's what I keep thinking. 

Especially now that I have been experiencing cramps, Braxton Hicks contractions, lower back pain, and intense pelvic pressure for the past 8 hours. My relentless hours of Google searching have drawn me to this conclusion...

I am going into pre-labor.

The monitor showed I had two contractions this morning, but the nurse didn't seem too alarmed, and I didn't even know I was having them. Now I'm beginning to think otherwise.

This whole labor/growing a baby experience is really confusing for a girl who hasn't the slightest idea what's going on! All I know is I'm huge, uncomfortable, and getting quite fatigued.

Off to a warm bath and massage I go!

Ever-growing belly.

Ever-growing exhaustion.

WOW seeing your belly makes me think about the miracle of life. Isn't it amazing to watch your body manufacture, sustain and nurture life? God created women with such a special purpose and to me (someone who longs for children but has lost hope of ever having them)the whole pregnancy thing is just such a wonder. What a blessing it must be to feel life beneath your heart. You look amazing and soon you will have your baby in your arm and every day will be a miracle. I would say enjoy the pre-labour but that may be pushing things a bit...instead I will say that I pray God will give you all the tools you need to get through this phase of your pregnancy. God bless.
