False alarm?

Well, yesterday I was *convinced* I was going into labour... I had 'period pain' type aches all day, and then started a few *twinges* down really low, but different to the Braxton Hicks I'm used to getting. They were very irregular - only a few in a space of a few hours - but it was different to what I've had, and along with the aches, I thought it MUST be coming on! So I ran around packing some clothes in my labour bag, cleaned the kitchen, and decided to go to bed early in case I was up during the night. I thought I had another stronger pain across my lower abdomen at about 10pm, but I was sleeping so restlessly and dreaming about contractions and labour I think that I don't know if it was real or in my dream! LOL.... but by about 11pm when Greg got home from a boys night watching the Mundene (sp?)/Green boxing match, I think they had stopped altogether and I didn't feel anything again all night...

What a pain in the arse!!!

Most of you know how impatient I am already for this baby to come out... and to totally tease me like that is just painful!! Gggrrrr.... I hope it comes on again today.... yes, 8 days early, but I'm over it and sooo ready to meet this baby!!

Lol Nat!!! You are sooo like me.. I just wanted my little baby out as well.. but she had other ideas and I ended up being induced a week overdue.. I'd had massive Braxton Hicks about 6 weeks early and Megie had turned and wedged herself upside down ready.. pity thats all she did.. lol.. she was quite happy on her head for the next 7 weeks!!!

Hope you don't have to wait tooo much longer.. and good luck with it all!!

Hugs
