It's technically 1/1/2012!!

And I can't believe I'm up counting contractions! Seriously!

I get through 3 pregnancies never having to wonder and now here I am.

So far they are 10-12 minutes apart and 25-30 seconds long...and they hurt! But we'll see. I just got out of the shower and they are still going on.

I'm really fighting it. Wink My mom is about 2 hours away and isn't coming down until Monday and she would have a fit if she missed it.

That said, it's been all day and especially constant and growing since 9pm. I've showered, changed positions, no go, they keep coming but I'm really hoping they down.

Well, they asked me to come in to be monitored. They've lightened up a bit since I've been here...figures! Not dialated but she said something about a dimple...no idea. But still here on the monitor...and so freaking tired!! I've been up 24 hours now. I'm pretty sure they'll send me home.

I'm glad for that but if the contractions continue for the next 48 hours I will not be a happy camper.

Oh no Christina! Good luck to you I hope you are home resting right now. If not, Nash might just want to throw you a curveball and come early!

Under what conditions do you think they might send you home? B/c 48 hrs would suck...

But on the other hand... WOOHOO! Nash is coming!!! I hope he holds out until your mom gets there!

Home and no baby...and I'm relieved though really, pain with no perks stinks!

Since no dilation they wouldn't make a move but it doesn't surprise me. And my mom gets to make it! Apparently she celebrated the New Year with champagne last night so she couldn't get here even if she tried. But she's coming today. Smile

I was able to sleep and that was beautiful! I'm still having them but the intensity is nothing like last night so I have no clue what to call last night. Pretty sure it will stink to go through the pains for 48 hours but I really think I'll be going to 1/3/12 to meet this little guy.

Thanks for the positive thoughts ladies!!
