« Due-date picture | Main | False labor really isn't fun »

October 12, 2005

Just like starting a car in cold weather...

...it takes a few tries before you get the engine really going.

The same is happening for us. Mariah has now had 3 sets of contractions, each about two hours long. It's called false labor, something we didn't know about but are now experts in, just like many other pregnancy-related topics (whether we wanted it or not).

The good thing is that each contraction counts -- softening, effacing and dilating, which should make things easier when real labor comes (it's GOT to be soon now).
