Braxton hicks. Pre-labor. Prodromal labor. False labor. These are all words used to describe those contractions you get before you’re in labor for real. It can start from days, to weeks, to even sometimes months before baby comes. I’ve been having contractions occasionally for the past month or so, but recently they’ve been getting more and more frequent. They’re not painful, but now I’m contracting on and off for a good part of my day. On Saturday night they were much more frequent than they’ve been in the past, and on Sunday morning I wasn’t sure if they’d turn into anything. Kyle was anxious about whether or not we should go to church. I think a tiny part of him didn’t want to have to teach his Sunday School lesson. But then I ate some breakfast, and they went away.
Baby just likes to tease.
