I can't tell you how many times I've been woken up in the night, thinking this is it, only to wake up several hours later and feel almost normal again.
The one I loved hearing was "when you're in labor, you won't have to'll KNOW." Well, 45 minutes before my son was born, I was trying to convince my husband to go back to work because nothing was going to happen...and that was after my water had broken! Like I said before, even while I was pushing (two pushes and that was it!) I didn't believe I was delivering the baby, I thought I was just pooping. Now this time, my MW teases me when I freak out about every little thing (you know, like contractions 6 minutes apart at 23 weeks, fluid leaking at 28 weeks, little things!) and I keep trying to make myself relax and believe that if it's really serious, we'll know in a couple of hours but I just can't help wondering....
