Braxton and Hicks were assholes

Last night, around 9pm, Amanda said she was feeling funny. She said she felt differently from how she'd felt throughout the pregnancy, and couldn't quite describe it, except to compare it mildly with PMS feelings. I suggested that we should go for a walk, since that's supposed to lend insight into whether you're actually in labor.

We went for a long walk, during which she said she still felt a little funny, but the feeling did not intensify, and seems to have mostly abated overnight.

Assessment: Braxton-Hicks contractions. I.e., false-labor.

She has a 2pm ultra-sound and doctor's appointment today, and has taken her bags just in case the doctor wants to admit her.
