I’ve been having intermittent lower back pain since the middle of the afternoon. It’s very reminiscent of one night nearly two years ago, just hours before PJ was born. I’ve also had pretty severe lower abdominal cramping with the Braxton-Hicks I’ve had. I’m not getting my hopes up, not heading to the hospital, but if I’m not around tomorrow, you have a pretty good idea why.
To balance out the high hopes there, I have also had some gastro-intestinal issues this week (probably due to my iron pills…long story), and I have to wonder if the pain I’m feeling is simply gas or something. I guess I’m just biding my time, waiting to see what happens.
On the other hand, it does help matters that I was so ridiculously emotional this afternoon, like ready to cry at anything and everything. That’s the worst it’s ever been, and I hear that happens to many women shortly before baby comes. Well…just keep your fingers crossed that this is it.
