Today has definitely been interesting. Starting having contractions around 7am. They continued to get closer and more intense. Went to the hospital at noon. I have now dilated, a little over a cm and am thinning out more. Contracting every 2-4 minutes consistently. Dr decided to send me home since I am only 36 weeks. Nurse said that she would not be surprised to see me later today or if not tonight within the next few days. I am still contracting consistently and am hurting quite a bit. Was told to come back if they intensify or I think my water has broke. Any suggestions for the discomfort? With all the contractions this pregnancy I would not be surprised if they just fade out and this is nothing again.
