Come Again?

So, I went in for my weekly check-up today with my midwife... and she checks me and says I am 70% effaced and dilated to a 4!! "What??" Sweet! That was easy! I haven't even been having contractions! The only thing I can account for it is that 2 days ago, I was in pain for hours and hours.. the only thing is that it was a constant pain- not a "come and go" pain like regular contractions.. so whatever. I just wish that my mom was here.. her flight isn't for another week! So, I dont know if she'll be able to catch a standby flight or what.. Its kinda hard for her to come out here on a whim because she has young kids at home and the aiport is 2 hours away.. so we'll see.

Anyways.. so I am super excited! April (midwifey) says I should have this baby within the next couple days! Sa-WEET! So, I will of course keep you posted.. shoot.. I should really clean my apt.. :)

Yay! I am so happy that you already got to a 4 without feeling anything. Maybe your body was made for birthing and little Xander will just fall on out. It's okay to be positive. Good luck! I hope your mom can make it in time.

Actually after reading the whole contant pain thing. I kinda had that with the twins..they called it premature labor. I am not sure if that is what you were feeling, but I am trying to remember but I think I remember explaining it at the time like a contant brain freeze but in my belly...I know that seems wierd but I am not sure now. It has been six years. Good luck and positive is good.
