In the wee morning hours of Tuesday, May 22nd, the day I turned 36 weeks pregnant, I woke up with what I would call pretty intense contractions. At least the most intense contractions I’ve ever felt. I couldn’t sleep and the pain made it difficult to even walk to the bathroom. I decided around 6am to go sit on the couch, focus, and time them out. I had an appointment for one of my weekly NST’s at 9am but was certain I wasn’t going to make it that long. Slowly, the contractions died down and dwindled to a small one here or there with no pattern.
