Hmm...things *might* just be getting interesting. Or maybe it's all in my head. The jury's still out. I have this desire tonight to stay up late, despite how tired I am, and clean up my house top to bottom. Could be that nesting thing everyone's been telling me about...not that the urge is compulsive or anything, but I really just want it DONE. My mom arrives in town on Tuesday, I have a highly-anticipated baby shower on Saturday, and I know time is gonna fly between now and Tuesday. I admit it--I'm starting to panic just a little about having my house as clean as I envisioned before this little one arrives. Other possible signs? A LOT of discomfort all day today and tonight--not contractions, but definite soreness and achiness and pressure to the point of not really being able to get comfortable. Oh, and a few other potential indications that are a little bit too tmi to write about here. :) I am seriously starting to wonder. I had another monitoring appointment today, and I was amazed at how much kicking this little girl was doing...waaay more than usual. And normally she's very quiet during the day. I've heard that the opposite can actually be a sign of imminent labor, that babies get pretty quiet and try to conserve their energy for labor and delivery. Can't say from experience, that's for sure. Only time will tell...but I seriously find myself wanting to be ready NOW just in case.
