It's 5am and I am showered and dressed, sitting on the birthing ball watching the sun rise. Been awake most of the night contracting, but it all seems to have stopped now I'm up. So annoying, since it had been happening since lunchtime yesterday. Contractions every 6 minutes for two hours, surely that had to be the start of something?! Hubby woke with a cracking headache, so packed him off back to bed with some pills. Hopefully he'll feel better by the time I really need him... Feeling very very tired at the moment, but lying down to rest isn't all that restful. Please Lord can the baby come today?
