Last Monday I woke up at 5am to contractions which pretty much lasted throughout the entire day. They never really hurt though and eventually just stopped at 11pm that night. My sweet parents decided to come in town just in case and they even left sunny Florida for this false alarm. Oops. To say I felt horrible is an understatement!! We had a great couple days together and they were a huge help getting final things ready for the baby. Extra hands are always needed and so appreciated too. Since then, I've had some much less consistent contractions throughout the week. I know my body is just preparing for the real thing and I'm doing my best to trust in God's perfect timing as well as soak up these last moments as a family of four.
