laboring, pre-laboring, or pre-pre-laboring
It is 3:49AM. A booming contraction woke me up around 1AM and there has been no sleep since. The contractions hurt but are not hospital-big. They blow through about every 10 minutes and so far haven't hastened their pace, so I wouldn't call this labor. But I also wouldn't call it sleep-friendly. So after doing laundry, making lunches for school tomorrow, rounding out my hospital bag, walking around the house, and making tea, I am now on the couch about to begin a 4AM showing of Sex and the City. Sarah Jessica Parker movies seem to have triggered my previous two labors, so I'm hoping. Keep you posted.
