I still feel pretty good. No labor signs for me yet. After dinner I usually get a little crampy but nothing consistent or progressive. The bladder pressure is the most uncomfortable part at this point.
I'm really hoping labor begins soon so I guess I should enjoy feeling ok while I can, huh?
With my first I started feeling kind of crummy the night before...just crampy and stuff but I thought it was just the Mexican food we had for dinner that night. My contractions started the next morning.
With my second I felt pretty much fine until that morning. I threw up for the first time in months and just felt tired and not hungry at all.
Other than my feet and ankles swelling and feeling tired, I felt really good with my daughter. I actually went to a big party/cookout with my parents the evening I went into labor and was having fun socializing. About an hour after I got home, my water broke..no contractions, nothing. She was 3 weeks early, and I actually wasn't quite emotionally ready to have the baby yet. I was kind of in shock.
This pregnancy is kicking my butt...I've had a lot more BH contractions, ligament pain, HORRIBLE swelling, no energy, etc. I cannot wait to have this baby! I think that everyone and every pregnancy is different. Although, I am hoping that this little one decides to arrive early too. If he keeps pace with my daughter, he should arrive next Monday : )
