Here she is! On the day after my due date I woke up at 4 am with some contractions. I came downstairs and tried to rest in between. I was pretty sure this wasn't another false alarm, but throughout the day the contractions got closer, then spaced out, back and forth in an erratic cycle. Finally at 6 pm I called the midwife and she suggested I take some Tylenol PM to relax and try to get my body out of this unproductive holding pattern. I took the Tylenol PM at 7 and slept in between the contractions, but immediately noticed that they had gotten more intense, even though they were still about 15 min. apart.
