    Default unexpected afternoon off...

    So after reading the convo last night about the braxton hicks. I realized that is what I was dealign wtih.. nto just a baby being uncomfortable. Had them AWFUL this morning at work (ALL morning) and the nurse told me to contact the dr. Who then in turn wanted me to come in to check for preterm labor. I was all relaxed and ok with knwoing it was braxton hicks. but then was instantly almost in tears when they said "We want to rule out preterm labor. come in at 1" I was then a mess trying to get my kids picked up and to lunch, write sub plans for a sub I didnt even know if I would get.....

    So I went to the dr and he ran a test for some chemical (can't remember what it was called) and told me they'd have results on Monday (since it was Fri) and to call them . he checked my cervix and said it looked good. first time meeting this dr in the office and i liked him better than the others so far.... he told me if I have any concerns over hte weekend it gets worse etc (at that point it was close to every 15 mins) to call the on call dr and tell him I had been in earlier. so I left feeling ok with the fact htat he was ok with sending me home and not to the hospital. I then got a call from him (not a nurse, not a secretary) after 5 saying he didnt realize they had a courier to send the test stuff over to the hospital who then ran the needed tests (guess he doesnt see that side of stuff!) and he was calling to tell me that my test came back neg. which is what we wanted. so I feel better but DH had a scare so now he's going to be helping me out more with the hateful morning child we have (though only hateful to mommy in the morning.... he adds daddy in at night)
    So its a weekend of "relaxing" (aka baking a cake for a baby shower on Sunday, and trying to get caught up on school work so I can do NOTHING next weekend except enjoy my birthday trip! )

    Im trying really hard... DH told me he wants me off my feet and doing nothing... yet he left with my dad to go help cut some trees....and the 3 yr old was still awake. I have no clue when he's getting home and I ran into some snags with the cake I HAVE to have done for tomorrow. so now its 3 and Im trying to START icing it...... my goal was to be FINISHED by dinner. I havent had near as many today just a few so that makes me feel better. I just hope its not like this til the end!

    He called Saturday to tell me they were neg (which was good) so hopefully no more issues... though I have started to notice that when I am having to fight DS in the mornign to get ready for work/ daycare I end up having more..... so DH is taking him tomorrow and we will see waht happens.

    Sounds like they did the FFN test. Negative means very low chance of going into labor within the next 2 weeks. I usually get a good bit of BH contractions starting around 20ish weeks but haven't noticed them as bad as you described. I almost always get some climbing stairs. They say drink lots of water, of course, and I am so not good at that. Hope you're having a good week this week.
