You would think by now having been through one, I would know. But nope, I am not sure... I think I am having contractions. Pretty sure they are tiny ones.. baby is SOO active too. He is doing a lot of bumping around, but it's usually during or before a "contraction".... last time I woke up to contractions that were painful and 2 minutes apart. I am thinking I must have just slept through the beginning?? Anyway, not sure. My EDD is 11/5 so I have some time still, but I'm within my safety zone...

Any thoughts of how I can tell? I am at work right now, so laying down isn't an option.

My mentality is that unless you have super fast labors in your history, then no need to dwell on it. If you can't tell if you're having contractions, then ignore them as long as possible. Once they are IMPOSSIBLE to ignore, then that's when you can start to get into labor mode. You never know how long your labor will last and it would stink to draw it out by dwelling on the itty bitty contractions in the very beginning.

Good luck and keep us updated!

You are excatly right Que.. I think I am just getting antsy. We have sooo much going on right now (sold 2 cars, officially without a vehicle, but may have a car today but still have to get the loan lined up, made an offer on a house 2 weeks ago, it was not accepted, but still looking) and I am anxious to have everything in order. Still trying to find more diapers too! lol I am ready.. can you tell??

lol, I tend to not dwell on the craziness and take it one thing at a time. There are moments when I think "have I lost my mind??" but I manage through. I work full time as well, so that is actually helpful sometimes to just keep my mind off of the crazyness.

THings are in order now I beleive though... have my car, last lot of diapers on the way (of course need to be washed, but thats easy enough), I have lightened my load at work and it's a full moon tonight Here's hoping!
