Good Morning {extended}

I am up right now because my contractions are strong enough and close enough I can't sleep.
It is oddly very comforting. I don't think I am in labor, although since it has only been about 2 hours its hard to tell.
Like I said it is comforting, I was just telling my fam that it was unusual for me to be having so little contractions this late in my pregnancy, and I was beginning to fear that the lack of them was going to lead to a very intense and compact labor.
Yet here I am in pain, not too bad, hopefully I am not having the baby today, and hopefully these contractions are just preparing me for what is to come.

So it is now 12 hours since I wrote the above. At around 4 in the morning I started timing my contractions, because they were too distracting to watch tv.
They were averaging 3 minutes apart and lasting a little over a minute for a couple of hours.
By 6 they started to be less painful and My body was finally able to fall asleep at least til about 9. It seemed like they were going away but now they are back in full force 3-5 minutes apart over a minute long, and making me tired.
Still feeling good though.
Jones is awesome and excited, doing all the last minute chores I failed to do.
C is excited and keeps asking me when Boo is coming.
These are good times.

Apparently you are posting in the future, because I'm ten houses down from you and yet it is only 1:18 am here.... so this means in another hour your contractions will be 3-5 minutes apart. Good heads up! :) So that means around 4am (5am in your time zone) we can expect the kidlinks to show up in their pjs? Hehe.

(This is actually way exciting by the way)
