Not in labor, but...

I think my body is finally catching on that it's time to evict this little girl. I've been having more off/on contractions (no pattern) all evening and I'm feeling exceedingly crampy which was always the sign that I was dilating with Caroline and Bryce - albeit several weeks earlier. I remember feeling like this the entire week before I had Bryce, so it's really not an indication of early labor - just that things are finally starting to move in the right direction. I was getting worried, but 39 weeks is 39 weeks. Maybe it was that pineapple I ate today. It's something I read about recently being a possible help to dilation/effacement. Who knows? I'll have to have more with breakfast in the morning just to see.

So with that, I say good night and hope I can get a semi-decent rest. Last night was kind of weird since I couldn't get back to sleep and then I had weird dreams that added to being uncomfortable on either side I laid on. Oh well, not much longer.
