Those who were following me on facebook and twitter last night, know that I started timing contraction at about 7:30 last night and kept on going for 6 hours until 1:30ish and finally gave up and said “Screw it, these aren’t going anywhere, I’m going to bed, and my body will wake me if I need to wake”. Well, here, for your eyes to behold, are the exact minutes of how my daughter tormented me.
There was another 1 or 2 between 1:04 and 1:30ish but by that point I was too disgruntled to mark them down, and not long after I flat out stopped paying attention.
You’ll note that there were a few times where it started to look like, “Hey! This might be it!” just to, you know, not be it.
I would also like to point out that 90% of those lasted over a minute with a few of them being the bring you to your knees type.
At no point was I looking for regular with all of them exactly 5 minutes apart. That can lead to home deliveries in some cases. I was just looking for most of them to be 5 or less. If I could just get to that point, I was dilated enough that they would keep me and break my water in the morn if I wasn’t progressing fast enough.
As it stands, it is 3:15 the following afternoon and I am still having contractions, but they are not the timing kind. They are “OH HOLY HELL” intense, just too far apart to bother paying any other attention.
