The worst part is having several really painful contractions in an hour that then taper off. I understand that this is the way that things work for most people, but I didn't experience this at all with Brenden. My water broke and I went to the hospital...short, quick, to the point. I didn't have to time anything, I didn't have to obsess over pains that came and went.
I wrote about how I'm not anxious about labor this time around just a few days ago. I still feel that same way...that she'll come when she comes. Like I told Tim today, she can hang out in there until her due date and I would be just fine, if only I could do it without these stupid contractions. I just want them to either go away and not come back until my water breaks or to just get stronger, closer and do what they are supposed to do.
