Late Thursday morning I started having contrax that were ~10 min apart. They weren't painful most of the time, but noticeable. A little cramping and some lower back pain. They got closer to 7 min apart by the time I left the office at 4pm. I called my OB office and they said to go tot he hospital to be checked. I called Dh and then our friend who was going to pick Ds (3) up from school. I called to talk to Ds at school and tell him Mommy and Daddy had to go to the hospital. He said Ok, he said I will miss you guys! I wanna see my brother too! He did really well. I get to the hospital ~1 hr later and the contrax were about 6 min apart. Get up to L&D floor and it is packed-full moon. We waited 2 hrs for a triage room to get checked. While I was waiting they contrax got as close as 3 min. They were all lasting 45 sec or so. They nurse hooked me up and did an internal exam. I was only dilated a fingertip and 0% effaced. Monitor showed that contrax were 3-6 min apart. They sent me home. Oh and even though baby boy dropped pretty low last week, he has decided to move back up. He is still head down, but I was hoping he would stay down.
Even though it was a false alarm, it was good to know Ds did well with our friends. He thankfully loves their 6 yr old little girl!!!
