One Very Painful Contraction?
So tonight I had a really, really painful contraction. It started out with just an ow, that doesn't feel good, but then it built and built and soon it felt like I was being stabbed right in the lower abdomen. Pete, upon hearing me say, ow OW OW OW OW OW came in and told me to take deep breaths. I guess it lasted like 15 seconds or so. It definitely took my breath away. Needless to say, I'm now very scared of labor pain. I had a painless Braxton-Hicks while walking around Target tonight (got two new nightgowns, hooray!). So maybe I should read up more on labor pain and not be wishing it was right around the corner. Owww.
