False Alarm (again?)

Right now, I’m feeling very mild contractions, I guess. It’s pretty hard to be a first-time expectant mom as I really don’t have any idea if what I’m feeling are really contractions or if these may be something that has been brought about by me trying to feel everything. OA lang, in short.

I’m just bothered by some spotting but I’m still observing myself and decided to wait a little bit more before I call my OB. It’s just a little spotting anyway and from what I read it’s a sign of false labor unless there’s blood or if my water bag broke. According to What to Expect When You’re Expecting, it is just the way my body prepares for true labor.

I sure hope my body’s preparing already. I will be seeing my mom tomorrow and we plan to do some serious walking at the mall and hopefully by Saturday, true labor comes full blast. I’ll be 39 weeks by tomorrow so it’s not so bad to give birth over the weekend.

I’ll keep you posted.

When I came in for my doctor's assessment and she did pap smear and IE, it appeared that I was only 1cm dilated! Imagine, I thought I was at least 3cm dilated that day and I even took the stairs from the ground floor to the 5th floor of the hospital where my doctor's clinic is located. Hayys, another long wait.. I am going to do some serious walking this week. :) Thanks everyone!
