First False Alarm

So all day yesterday I had Braxton-Hicks.. alot more than normal. At the NST and OB visit everything was fine, and I tried not think about it.

Late last night I started to have contractions every 4 minutes.. um yeah, a little close. But I was able to talk and move during them.. a sign that this wasn't really labor. It stoppped about an hour later.. Interesting stuff I must say. I was in complete denial - my suitcase isn't even packed!!!

Hope Ms. Isabelle can wait till March 3rd - tentative date for inducement. Today she is full of energy and moving nonstop....

We had our breastfeeding class last night. Yes, Thomas went! I had asked him to go with me and he being the great hubby he is, obliged me. The teacher was a little odd, but in general pretty good class. I can't say I learned too much new stuff - I've been quite the reader. And it looks like although I will be able to have a glass of wine fairly soon, STILL NO SUSHI!! UGH!! Looks like I'll be Ahi free until Isabelle is trained on boob and bottle.. The things you do for love :-)

I was surprised to hear from one of my other friends recently that it's harder to breast feed than you think. I kinda just assumed the baby came out and latched on. :)

I made Randy go too! I thought he needed to hear from someone else all that I was going to go through and how it isn't as easy as people make it out to be! Be patient and don't feel bad if you have to supplement a few times until it all starts flowing! :) I had a break down when the nurse suggested it, I only had to do it 2 times and then we were on track.
