2nd April : Happy Braxton-Hicks Contraction Day

It started after sending my son to tuition class at 3pm. I decided since I had the energy to do things, might as well I go out and finish up the to do list before I leave for Sabah.

There was a lot of walking, driving, anxiety, frustration and plus the heat was getting to me. I did notice the tightening of my tummy plus the intense pressure on my lower abdomen. It was very consistent throughout and the only way I could relieved it was by sitting down.

It went on through the night, until to the extent that I could not lie down properly on my bed to sleep. I was already planning in my head to call my gynae in the middle of the night and to ask her to come and check on me. If not, drive to the hospital myself. I was ready and frankly I was a bit relaxed (even though I am supposed to deliver in Sabah and all arrangements had been made there already), because then I would be able to call hubby home earlier and I would get to see him when he comes back then.

Whatever it was, I knew that the baby was not ready yet. There was no blood or water gushing out, just irregular contractions and it eased up a bit if I am in a sitting position. So that was it for the rest of the night. I was asleep in an upright position, had cramps, could not move much and woke up several times to adjust the pillows. I was wimpering a bit and for comfort I was listening to my son's snores and movements. It was nice to have someone around.

I prayed to God also to help me get through the night, of which He did. After sending son off at 7am, I continued my sleep till 11am, without disturbance. No contraction today.

I did manage to get hold of hubby and related to him the story. I did not want to panic him, but I did tell him that I was ready to give birth here so that I can be with him, instead of thousands of miles away. Cae sera sera I guess. God willing. As well as the baby's decision also. If he can stay put, then ok. If not, expect an early delivery from now till the 12th.

Keep you guys updated ok!
