  1. My family really feels completed. Yeah, I think of little Shannon sometimes and could picture us with another boy running around, but if that never happens, I’m really very happy with where we are. 🙂

    But it does feel just like yesterday that I discovered it all. 🙂

  2. Sarah, I feel like my last month was my body getting ready for birth, which consisted of mini pressure waves (contractions) all the time. 🙂 And yes, I was probably in my 6th month or so when I began feeling the practice ones, but they were never consistant so everything was ok.

    How about you? Are you feeling anything yet? I’d think you were still a little early, but you never know. 🙂

  3. The doctor said that it’s normal, and it was nothing to worry about. and blamed the fact that I’m a new mother on my worries. I’m going to my OBGYN tomorrow to get a second more informed opinion.

    Since I’ve kinda taken it easy, I’ve stopped feeling the discomfort for the time being so far.
    I’ll let you know what the doc says tomrrow

  4. Sarah, if you are already feeling BH contractions you could be 1) overdoing it with exercise and 2)not getting enough water. I was guilty of both when I was having BH contractions. My midwife yelled at me. 😉 Try to be sure you are getting 3-5 Liters of water each day. Ya, I know. It is good for both of you though! Always feel free to pick our brains or ask any questions! Hugs to you!

  5. I think I’ll take a break on my walking. I do alot around the house too, and I guess both could kind of hurt me. and I’m definitely guilty of not drinking my water.

  6. Hey, Sarah, I was thinking about it, and you may have a sensitve uterus that responds easily to stress. I think my uterus was more easily “stimulated” this last time around, however, running after a class full of kids is stressful, and I did notice mine “acted up” more when I was walking the halls. So, yeah, I’d lay off the walking for now or if you do walk, just slow it waaaayyyy down, and dont forget to carry your water jug with you everywhere you go. I still have mine and carry it with me. 🙂
