I'm still pregnant.

Still having pre-labor/early labor contractions.

Still sitting around twiddling my thumbs.

I got a decent nights rest last night, despite my hip and left leg deciding to start hurting on me. (muscles were sore... Jake massaged them for 5 minutes this morning and I could walk again.)

Jake said i'm not allowed to go into labor until tonight or later this week, he's got a lot of work to do today. LOL

Odds are, he's got nothing to worry about.

I'm still feeling "restless" and "nesting" and it feels like labor's going to start soon, I just can't put my finger on when. I sure wish I had a crystal ball, would make it easier to just relax and go "okay, its going to turn into active labor at this time." and just distract myself until it was that time. LOL

I honestly don't mind not knowing, but the having to be semi self-aware enough not to do anything to far from home just in case.... gets annoying.. and having to pay enough attention to my contractions to relay information to Jake during the daytime when he's not home makes me more aware of how many i'm having... and that they aren't progressing. LOL

they are just intense enough to occasionally make me have to stop whatever i'm doing and focus on relaxing through them.... but they aren't progressing.

It's hard not to feel excited for a change by having contractions after fighting off pre-labor for so long...

I can finally enjoy having them.... and can finally go into active labor... and my body is content to tease me...

They wake me up out of sleep, make me restless, and are just intense enough to make sure i know when I have them and keep me from being totally functional....

I feel alot of them in my back too even if I feel the front tighten up really hard all the way to the bottom of my ribs, I have a feeling i'm going to end up having mostly back labor.... but we'll see what happens! LOL

I keep stroking my tummy and talking to Abbie, telling her its safe for her to come out, there's nothing left in the house to clean, Jake even vacuumed the Master bedroom for her!

I've been keeping the house cleaned up as we go for the most part, and laundry's maintained, no dirty dishes. Dogs and our son are all settled in and everyone's just sitting here... waiting for her.

There's nothing left to do to distract myself to be honest. My house is totally unpacked and organized. It's clean....

I've been trying to play video games, because my brain's not slow enough to focus on anything more productive, like writing or editing.

We put up the christmas tree last night with our son, because that was the only thing left we had to do. We promised him we'd put it up before his sister was born so we wouldn't be too tired after she got here.
