36 Week Appointment

I had a very unique experience at my appointment yesterday. Right as the doctor was coming in I told Josh that my tummy felt so tight and it got all contorted and then as I went to lay down to be checked I had the sharpest pain in my abdomen. It hurt so much that I couldn't even lay down for a minute. Apparently I had my first real contraction, not braxton hicks. That's what the Doctor said anyway. I think that was an "aha" moment for me that Emslee could come anytime in the next few weeks. Up until that point I don't think I had fully grasped that concept. Emslee is head down and moving like crazy! She kept me up all night last night. I'm getting used to having little to no sleep, though, and it's probably a good thing! Due to my insurance running out July nice....the doctor said she'd induce on the 20th if I want.'s crazy that that's only 18 days away! As for now that's the update and I'll be back there again next Thursday to see if I am dilated at all. Praying I come before the 20th...that would be SO nice since I can't stand the heat anymore :)
