Saturday, July 8 – Friday, July 14, 2017
I spent most of the week laying around the apartment and working on my various knitting projects. At this point, I’m feeling bigger and heavier every day. He’s taking up so much room that I can no longer sit up straight without feeling like I’m squishing him. I’m also increasingly hungry. I get up in the middle of the night to both pee and eat. It hurts more to walk every day. I am starting to look forward to labor as an end to the pain.
On Friday, I started getting mild contractions. It just felt like a tightening of my uterus every so often. There was no pain and they were about 10-20 minutes apart. I was hoping that they would increase in frequency and intensity and I’d go into labor. Instead, I fell asleep around midnight on Friday night.
