I feel a change coming. Last night I started having painful contractions for the first time. It really threw me. I don't normally (well, for my last two kids) have painful contractions until I'm in labor. It made me nervous. I know the baby would likely be fine but, it's still a little early. The irregular pain went on for about 3 hours and I just tried to stay on my left side and get some sleep. I know that real labor can not be put off so, I figured my body would tell me. I woke up at 6am relieved. I have an appointment today and it will feel good to get things check and figure things out. Having a baby is such a mystery. I know this change soon. I'm 36 weeks on Friday. The end of a pregnancy is such a mixed go from desperately wanting to be done to not wanting your baby to come too early in the same thought.

I'll keep you posted.
