From Active Back to Latent
Just as I was going to call my doula to come over this morning, I felt an incredible drowsiness come over me. I decided, why call her to watch me nap? So I napped first. When I woke up my contractions had spaced out few and far between. Oh well. I took advantage of the lull and ran some errands, you know, bank, store, post office, that sort of thing. Stopped by the office to check the mail. When I got back, I was in the mood for another nap, so I slept some more. I'm just getting up, its about 3pm. Still contracting intermittently with pressure on my bladder, I know the baby has moved down. I'll call my friend Dottie to come over and visit with me a while. I'm ready for company now. I'll wait just a little bit more to call the Brits and doula, I really want to save them for active labor. My dear husband has been shampooing carpet ALL day just to please me. What a sweetie (I really did want those carpets cleaned!) Right now I noticed our bathroom needs to be cleaned so I'll do that till Dottie gets here.
