When are you due? Is this first baby or more? When did you have last baby if this isn't your first?

I have an irritable uterus.. so we did this with all my pregnancies.  but this little girl may have different plans.  I am hoping that we don't need trabutaline... god i hate that crap.

Drank some water and took my magnesium supp.  I ate a little, laid down.  tried to sleep.  took a short shower.  I just checked my cervix, its still closed and there is no increase of discharge.  so at the moment these seem to just be irritable contractions, I am guessing from stress.  I'm doing some breathing exercises.  they have slowed down a bit, but as they slow down she starts kicking my cervix and they start back up again.
