Thanks... lol! I'm so itchy to do martial arts again at the moment, it isn't even funny anymore. I'm just arrived back home from teaching and even though I had contractions throughout teaching, I was actually participating and even showing arm bars on the back for a few seconds. It even made me feel better than not moving at all. And now I know, that doing the straddle stretch (side split stretch) while standing and bending forward really, really does me good. Boy, it so takes the pressure of the lower back, it's amazing. The contractions were completely painless like this. Glad I found THAT out.

Thanks for all the last incoming birthday wishes!!!
