Last weekend I had my first Braxton Hicks contractions. I was in bed early in the morning, still sleeping but half awake. I felt a dull cramp in my uterus, and in my sleepy mind, forgetting that I was pregnant, I thought "Oh, I'm getting my period. I had better get up soon and put on a pad." Later when I remembered this, when I was fully awake, I thought it was pretty humorous because I haven't had my period since August. But after 20 years of period cramps, that was the first thing that popped into my sleepy head.
