Hello all!! So my u/s appt is this week, thurs to be exact and i can find out if i'm just measuring early, i got a huge baby, or was he in a weird position. I was thinking the other day: how can you tell if the baby's feet are kicking you or is it their hands punching you? Lol. I'm always making him move something but i don't know if he shies away when i touch his feet or hands. The weird things i think about, maybe there is a way to distinct it but i can't tell. Can someone breakdown EXACTLY what do contractions feel like? I used to feel a tightening that would come out of nowhere but i haven't felt that. Last night i felt like a really bad menstral cramp in my pelvic area, it wasn't the tightening feeling i've had from the ones when i was about 20+ weeks but i was taking out my trash and it made me stop in my tracks? Would that be considered one? I'm so afraid that i'll be in labor and have no idea what it is going on or i'll blow off an contraction and it'll be too late. My other question is did everyone go through the "nesting" stage (i think that's what it's called) and clean their house in preparation? I am too tired to clean clean! I barely have enough energy to walk the dog. Is that a good sign that i won't be going into labor early? I feel so slow with all my thoughts and not knowing this or that. If i ever get to baby #2 i'll be way more ready lol.
