False alarm

Call it hallucination or anxiety or just plain I-want-it-natural syndrome.

Really, when I was told that I will be "late" again this time - I simply cringe. I was like "why me...why again?". Ok, I know there are worst things that could happen but believe me, I am not liking the idea at all.

You know, the last time when this happened to me, I was excited. Totally bizzaro but I was! Contributed largely to the fact that I didn't know what to expect and you know, just went with anything. I mean, I didn't know what contractions would feel like, what it meant when my water-bag broke...things like that. Sure...of course...I would read about these things but actually experiencing them, feeling the pain is another. I knew the contractions would be a lot more intense if you were to have your birth induced...but for me it was like "ok..well, compared to what?". I had nothing to compare the intensity with.

However, now...I DO! It is horrible, horrible. I would never wish upon this on anyone, anyone at all. I'm not saying that it's totally un-bearable, it is but it's just...if I had a choice, I'd rather not.

So, anyway, last night, I felt it. I wasn't sure if it was contractions or simply, stomach ache from eating too much of my mom's kai choy soup (I had one bowl too many O_O). I was elated..at the fact that I may be experiencing contractions.

But, just like unique hotels, they are so hard to come by harder when your super gynae is right. The 'contractions' disappeared this morning when I woke up. And to think...all that mental celebration...short-lived..:-(
