Practice contractions have started. I have asked some friends who faced pre-term labor whether this meant contractions would soon follow, and they said its possible. Its funny because I thought I’ll forget how it feels like, but I am remembering them quite well! They are not that painful but it comes in rhythmic waves. Though they are still far apart. I get them like once or twice a day. In other news, my tummy has definitely gone above and beyond normal limits – my pelvis and groin is intensely pressured after sleep. I’ve never seen my stomach stretch this far before, its kinda scary looking. Constipation has gotten a lot worst and I cannot sleep for more than an hour or two before having to get up from all types of discomfort. The tripsters also are taking turns to kick me so I get kicked all day. Wow, how am I going to get through the next 10 weeks, if I even make it that far. When sleep is bad, my willpower is weak. I don’t know what its like to get a stretch of deep sleep anymore.
