No pain no gain

Lots more irregular contractions for the past 2 days and nights--enough so that I can't get any sleep (even worse than just from getting up to pee). I had a check today--still a good 2cm, and baby's head is still engaged. We went up to L&D just for some BP and baby monitoring, and everything looks good. I had some decent contractions while I was there (or at least so I thought) but they didn't really get picked up on the monitor. Even the ones I consider pretty painful aren't so bad I can't talk through them. So apparently this is just a warm-up. Yeah. Can't wait for the real thing.

What's annoying about bedrest (today) is that I'm sort of getting the nesting instinct but I can't do much. So I keep making lists of things I want to do. So useful. I'm sure D appreciates it.
