Just a few more days.
So an update since my last post. Hubby and I went up to the in-laws house for a dinner to celebrate MIL and grandma-in-law's bdays. I was working, and around 11am I started having contractions. They were sporadic, about 5-10 min apart. By 4 they were pretty strong and getting painful. I asked my boss if I could sign out early and I'd use PTO for the rest of the day, they said yes. It was pretty bad. I told Hubby's gma what was going on and I made it through most of dinner with them. I decided to take a nap. Hubby had been up for 30 hours and he was in no condition to drive home. He had to work the night before, then had a golf game with some friends during the day. I let him nap for a little bit, but then I had to get home. The contractions were so painful and were consistently 6 min apart. When we got home, I packed the rest of my hospital bag and decided to get a shower. I told Hubby to go to bed immediately so just in case we had to get to the hospital, he could be functional. He didn't need any persuasion for that. LOL I took a shower and got dressed so I could call my midwife and find out if she wanted me to head to the hospital. Don't you know, I laid down, decided to time 2 or 3 more contractions first. They completely stopped. So after 13 hours of contractions, they stopped. :( I was soooo upset. But I was also extremely tired, so I just went to bed. Since then I've had some random contractions here or there, but nothing grouped together or anything. I am so irritated by this. I was really hoping to not have to work this week and having my little man here! But I guess I will be working again. I'm still debating about asking my midwife to strip my membranes and do a cervical check on Wednesday when I go in. I want labor to start, but I've heard that can be very painful. Ugh... guess I'll talk to her and see what she says first. But either way I will have my little man here next week. I'm going to be induced on the 25th if I don't go into labor before then. So there is a light at the end of the tunnel!!! LOL
