Another morning that I'm still pregnant, sigh, lol. I think I'm expecting to go into labor in the middle of the night, so every time I wake up in the middle of the night to pee or in the morning it's a bit of a disappointment that it hasn't happened yet. I'm just really ready and keep feeling like today is the day, but each day that's obviously not true. It's such a mind game.
@CaraBoonie @claireloSC and klbh I, too, have it in my head it will happen at night! Probably because with both of my other two I woke up during the night in labor- midnight with DS and 3:30am with DD. It's awful b/c every time I wake up to go to the bathroom (about 3-4 times per night) I lay in bed for a minute being like "Was that a contraction??" and then I'm exhausted in the morning from poor sleep. I also spend the day in fear though because even though my water has never broken until I was set up in labor in delivery and had my epidural (I never even noticed it happened) I have a fear that my water will break at work or in my car- gross either way and awkward as hell at work! so I just need to get home this evening and I can breathe a sigh of relief until my nighttime freak outs begin again.
It's just the not knowing that is driving me nuts. I'm very bad at things that are unplanned, and so these last days are hell for me, I am NOT easy going about waiting! And about not knowing how it will go down. I thought I'd be okay because I'm not in horrible pain or anything, but it doesn't make the emotional component of waiting any easier!
