Braxton-Hicks, etc.

Now that I'm finally past the 37-week point of my pregnancy, the Braxton-Hicks contractions are sometimes very painful. In fact, they're more painful than my drug-free delivery of child number two, who weighed over 9.5 lbs. I spent most of my labor with her siting on a "birthing ball" and watching cable TV at the hospital. I really recommend those balls; they are much more comfortable than lying or sitting on a hospital bed. Maybe I should get out the ball now to see if it helps with my Braxton-Hicks pain...
