So, all evening I was having contractions & sharp pains in the cervix area. (Idk how else to describe the pains). I couldn't get comfortable and finally decided I was ready to go to bed. BF and I go to bed & I was still having painful contractions but managed to fall asleep for about an hour. It was then that I woke up with horribly painful contractions. BF was sawing logs so I sat up in bed & started timing the contractions. They were about 10-20 minutes apart & about a minute and a half long & SUPER painful. So I woke BF up and said I was going to call the dr. Well, I realized it was 3am & so I said I didn't know if I should have the dr paged or just go to the hospital. BF starts grumbling!!! He asked how far apart they were so I told him & I said "But they're hurting really bad!" And he rolls over away from me and says "They're contractions, they're supposed to hurt"
Ooohhhhhh......I could have ripped his face off. I said "Just go back to sleep!". I have been up since 1am, the contractions got to be about 5 minutes apart for over an hour. Finally they subsided & I was able to rest a little. Thankfully I didn't have to go into th hospital yet. But I am so hormonal and angry and tired.....I just needed to vent. BF is truly amazing & has been taking such good care is me. But when he said that the contractions were SUPPOSED to hurt & then went back to sleep. I just almost became one of those women you see on the news.......
Ok, trying to calm down before he wakes up for the day.

I find you ladies to be so freaking awesome.. You guys keep it together and don't lose it at times that my DH would be on the floor. *LOL* This is one of those things that would make me left eye tick the whole time that I was yelling.
"Oh you want to be an inconsiderate prick because I had to wake you up because I'm in severe pain?? Guess who's not sleeping tonight!!!"
Thankfully DH has been nice and kind for weeks since my last freak out. And now that my pressure is up he knows he needs to leave me and my raging hormones alone.
*muttering* Contrations are supposed to hurt.. NO S**t sherlock! Is that the point?
Hahaha thank you ladies for understanding my rage!!
I finally got to sleep around 8am & slept until a little after 10. I just re-read my post & I was so mad & so tired, it seems funny to me now. Not the part where he was a jerkface, but the post itself.
He just came in to the bedroom & asked how I am feeling & I gave him "the look". Then I told him how the rest of my night went out on the couch. He asked why I didn't wake him up when the contractions were 5 minutes apart. I told him exactly why, because of how he acted the first time I tried waking him up!!! He says that he ASKED "aren't contractions supposed to hurt?" And I said OH NO YOU DID NOT ASK!!! And then I went on to tell him that I was very aggravated about it.
So now, after bringing me my body pillow & propping pillows all around me in bed, he's out in the kitchen making me coffee & sausage egg burritos for breakfast.
Aw Mama! I'm sorry BF was being a jerk! Mine was being a jerk the other day and he was leaving the room I got a sharp pain and he turned around and said "Ha that's what you get" and that hurt my feelings pretty bad because this pregnancy has been pretty rough on my body and I didn't think I deserved to be spoke to like that.....So I know how you feel, but I took it a step further and slapped him across the face (Not hard enough to hurt him, mainly because he's a big guy) but hard enough to get his attention and told him that what he said to me hurt my feelings and he ended up apologizing to me and telling me he appreciated what I'm doing for him and blah blah. lol
Hahaha!! I know it's not really funny, but it makes me think of my friends. When she had her son last year, she woke up her husband and told him it was time to go. He told her that she was not ready to have the baby and to go back to sleep. Of course, she persisted, and did have her son within 6 1/2 hours. Sometimes our men just don't know what they're getting themselves into!!

Oh geeze. I'da smacked him! I don't think I'm going to have to worry about my boyfriend doing that when its time. He's already driving me nuts with the "are you okay? Was that a contraction? Are you in baby pain?" (Yes - "baby pain") I'm constantly the one telling him to chill out.
