Everyone is different . Some women’s water breaks, some have contractions and some have cramping . Last night I started the miles circuit , a few exercises to get Samantha in the optimal birthing position. I felt like Samantha was taking a turn for the worst ( turning breech ) so I stopped , relaxed and got on my birthing ball to houla and bounce to get her back down and hopefully engaged. Not gonna lie, the little exercise wore me out ( can’t wait to have the endurance to exercise again )!
I decided to get in the shower, wash my hair and shave after all of that. By this time it was 9:30ish. I did all of my evening grooming and hopped into bed. Laying down I started to have mild period like cramping, which I have experienced off an on through my pregnancy. I dozed off to my night sleeps. As usual, I woke up to empty my bladder but noticed I was still cramping. I kept telling my self It’s nothing and not to get excited.
I woke up, still cramping and felt extremely tired . I honestly thought I had gotten good sleep. All day I have still had this mild constant dull cramping in my lower belly sometimes extending to my back and stayed exhausted feeling.
Is this it ? Is this the start of labor or is my body playing tricks on me ? We shall see , HAPPY FRIDAY !
