I think today's the day??
I started having contractions last night around 9. They've become as close as 10 minutes but as far as 15 minutes. They don't seem to be progressing (they are more intense but not any closer together ) and I just feel like I am sitting around waiting! I probably slept 2 hours tops last night and really wish I took a nap yesterday. With Nick, it took 27 hours from when I started having contractions (the very start) to when he was born. How long will it take this time? 27 hours would be midnight tonight. And I already want an epidural. Don't they have over the counter epidurals you can get and feel nothing?
Here's how I would describe what contractions feel like - an inner tube around your hips/stomach that is piercing and stabbing you all around back to front. How would you describe them?
Around 1am I was starving and ate toast. 3 am I had 2 clif Z bars and for breakfast I could really go for some pizza. When I called the doctor to ask when I go to the hospital the 2nd time around, he said when contractions are 5 min apart - I thought that is when you go the first time around. When did you go? My water didn't break last time or this time, otherwise I'd be going to the hospital already.
