Tonight the contractions are pretty bad. I don't know what, if anything, triggered them. I was just laying on the couch and BAM they started pretty hard. I'm frustrated. I figured with the kiddos gone it would be a breeze but I'm having to fight, and fight I will.

Tomorrow is my apt and I'm going to ask the Dr to get a little more aggressive and prescribe me some meds to help because my body is not able to do it on its own right now and things are escalating even when I'm staying down more and more. Tomorrow he will do another one of the 2 week tests that will tell me for sure if I will not have the baby in the next two weeks. If its negative that will be a huge relief off my mind since that will get me through to 33 1/2 weeks.

The one great thing I have to console me is how much I am enjoying reading all of the conference addresses from this last General Conference. There is just SO much to worry about right now, not just personally, but as a country and as a world where there is a lot of suffering. Each talk seems to just hit home with the message of hope, peace, and joy. I cant tell you how much having the Conference talks is helping me to be at peace right now personally with this pregnancy but also with all of the external stresses.

I'm very grateful for this time that I do have to just sit and have silence and how blessed I feel to to have words of these great men. I haven't had the time to really internalise Conference like I have this time since before we had kids. What a blessing its been!
