Crazy Pain

So today was my first offical day of feeling the Braxton Hicks. Oh my gosh let me tell you it hurts so much. It could be something else but It hurts. This morning I was walking down the hall at work and my ligaments felt like they were being pinched to death I had to slow way down and breath it hurt so bad. Then later on I felt this tighting in my stomach and a sharp pain for a few sec then it went away. At around 5:20pm I was sitting at work at the computer and I got this very painful feeling in my stomach. I had no idea what it was, but it lasted forever, maybe a good 20 mins or more. The pain got pretty bad then kinda eased up a bit, off and on for like 30 mins. I called Labor and delivery to make sure everything was ok, because it's my first baby and I don't know what to expect. They told me it was probably just uterin pain and to go home and take a nice warm bath and drink a big glass of water or something and if it still hurt to call them back. Well I did just that. The pain did ease up a lot but I still have a little bit of pinching and sharp pain every so often. It is the weirdest thing in the world. I guess my body is just preparing itself for Labor. It's good to have this pain though, I think, so I can feel better prepared for that day when my water breaks and I have to deliver the babe. I have really enjoyed being pregnant, it's been pretty easy so far. This is the most pain I have had the whole time and I only have 8 more weeks left. It's crazy. I feel super blessed. I'm very excited and scared to have a baby and be a mom. I have no idea what to expect but it will be so awesome.
