Meet Braxton.....Braxton Hicks

35 weeks, 5 days into pregnancy.  That means approximately less than 5 weeks to go!

I've been feeling the 'practice contractions' for quite some time now.  Barely able to feel them, but I could feel (with my hands) my belly-region tighten up like a rock and attributed it to those. 

Over the past week or so?  Much stronger.  They still don't 'hurt', but for the dozen or more that I'm having a day, they are definitely more noticeable and sometimes take me by surprise. 

What do you have when you have a pregnant "hypochondriac"?  A paranoid, soon-to-be mother that keeps thinking she's going into labor at any moment.  HA!  They are coming somewhat regularly and I try to just go lay down if I can, drink some water and try to relax!  Getting a little (OK, a lot!) anxious!!  And I'm trying not to scare Adam in the meantime!  hehe
