Irritable

I had 3+ hours of contractions last night, roughly five minutes apart and lasting for over a minute, but not progressing or anything. So basically a convincing false labor that looked like early labor but really just served to ruin my night's sleep and show me that the app I downloaded for my android phone that times contractions is buggy. (It crashed itself once, and the whole phone once. Bah.)

My uterus has generally seemed more irritable this pregnancy than in the past. I think it's the whole pelvic separation thing. It's apparently quite common for that to get worse with each pregnancy, and given that I was mostly feeling the contractions centered around that place where my pelvis should join together in the front but doesn't anymore, I suspect that I would not have noticed the false labor thing if my pelvis hadn't reached new depths of dysfunction.
