…I was 37 weeks pregnant, enjoying a farewell lunch for a lovely friend, finding myself full after two slices of pizza.
…baby had gone from 4/5 engaged (the way he’d been for weeeeeeks), to 0/5 engaged and had turned posterior.
…the sciatic nerve pain I’d been plagued with for weeks had abated, and I felt comfortable for the first time in months.
…I believed this baby was still weeks away from being born.
Babies are tricky like that.
Also? My hair was looking awesome, I must say.
This is the photo I posted on Facebook mere hours before the first contraction. A very dear friend had posted a photo of herself at 40 weeks two days prior, and her baby boy was born just hours later. That’s the key, people! Facebook has the power to bring on labour.
