My body never got the memo

I have more contractions laying in bed, or on my left side, then I do walking around, on the birth ball, in the shower, or in the tub with jets.


Stupid body. How am I supposed to sleep if the one "relaxed, non-stressful" place I'm at is the one place I get the most irritation????!!?!?!?!?


anybody else's bodies not get the memo?

I was the same way.  I feel like really it was the same but when I was trying to relax then I would notice them more.

I actually don't have them... I spent an hour on the birth ball to help my hips earlier, I didnt' have any contractions, or in the tub. A couple hours later, laying down, trying to work and suddenly, I'm having a bunch back to back. :/

I know night time is more likely to produce contractions though too.

no but that's because my puppy kept me up all night, as did my toddler. :/

Ugh. Sorry. Maybe you could squeeze in a nap today if your toddler naps? Mine doesn't. I miss the napping days sometimes!

naps are hit or miss. If he doesn't fall asleep by 1, I don't let him take a nap or he'll be up half the night.
