Last night I noticed my contractions were getting more intense again... I started timing them at about 4:30/5pm and they were about 2 to 3 mins apart. I laid down on the couch for a while, drank some water, but they werent getting better. So, I went and took a bath, and when DH got back from running some erronds with the kids, I went back to the couch, had dinner, and drank some more water. It really wasnt the contractions that were worry some, but the pain in my belly and lower back that had me nervous. They went to about every 5 min. apart, and were less in intensity by 8pm. At about 9:30 or so I took some tylonal PM and went to bed and was able to sleep. This morning I was noticing some tightening, and felt like I was kicked you know where. So, I called my clinic, just to see what my doc thought. She was out till noon, so they ran it by another doc... who wanted me to go to L&D to get monitored and checked.
They did a thread and the baby looked great, and they didnt pick up any contractions. So, My doc came in, checked me, and since I'm not dilated, sent me home to just continue to do what I am doing. I'm still sore, but relieved that everything looks good. Just gotta watch what I'm doing, and listen to my body better. Its also a relief to know that everything is ok with DH leaving Sunday evening to go stay up at my sister's while he starts his new job next week. I think I will be even more relaxed once we are moved and all together up there
Glad everything is fine! That is a lot of contractions to be having, but at least they were cervical productive. Hopefully it stays that way for awhile longer.
Glad to hear that everything is OK! (((hugs)))

I'm glad that you were checked and all is well. I'd say "Take it easy" but know that given your current situation that is highly unlikely! Instead, I'll hope all goes smoothly with your move and that you are able to then relax and enjoy the remainder of your pregnancy! Do be careful!
good to hear all is o.k.

Glad you are doing okay - how was your weekend? I know it's hard to rest right now, but hopefully you can put your feet up here and there to sneak in a little down time in the midst of all you have going to get ready to move! Easier said than done, I know!!
It's amazing how much contractions can tire you out even without cervical change. I feel for you and hope things calm down for you and baby once you're all together as a family again!! Hugs!
