CJ and I have just arrived at the hospital, and the change of scene is making me feel temporarily pretty good… at least between contractions. Three hours ago I had an internal exam and I was between 3 and 4 cms dilated, which means that I am officially and measurably in labour. I still feel like someone will say “Go home, stop whining and making such a fuss, you’re not going to give birth for ages yet.” Then I have a contraction. You’ll be shocked to hear that contractions are painful. I cling on to CJ, yell ‘ow’ a lot, and writhe about until the worst is over. And then I feel basicully fine until the next one.
