2:30 and I am up (update #2)

Timing contractions. Woke up with some contractions about 30-45 min ago. I have just been laying in the bed since. I am supposed to go to work today so I figured I may need to time them. They aren't very strong and I hope they go away. I would like to get about another week out of the pregnancy. I have already tried peeing and that didn't help. Gonna try some water and food in a bit if they don't stop. Looks like I may be calling in since I'm not sleeping. As bad as I don't want to be preggo anymore, I would really like D day to not be today. LOL! I will post an update later.

I am still at home and still contracting. They have spaced out but are still pretty strong. They got mild enough for me to sleep for a little bit. From about when I started timing them, until about 5, they were every 2-6 minutes and pretty strong. I'm trying to decide what I'm going to do. Since they have spaced out, I really don't want to go to the hospital. I'm thinking about calling my OB and seeing if he will work me in for a NST and to check me. No change in discharge and Carter is moving a ton. I'm guessing I'm still closed but don't really want to chance it. I'll let you girls know what I decide to do. I'm thinking I will end up calling my OB though.

Went in to see my OB. I am dilated 1-2 now from closed yesterday. He thinks I may be in early labor and told me to go walk. I am supposed to go back to see him at 4 pm to be rechecked. We will make a decision at that time

I think going in to the office to be checked is a great idea!

My OB told me at my last appointment that if I wasn't sure, I could always call the office and have someone check me (even if it was her day off), because that would be free (well, part of the total cost of the pregnancy) but going into the hospital would be an automatic $1000 even if they sent me home.

Getting checked sounds good to me too! I would probably do the same thing!

How do any of you afford having babies in the US? I don't understand your insurance!

It all depends on the type of insurance you have. I have Blue Cross Blue Shield... Anything Pregnancy related is covered and I don't have to pay anything out of pocket. For example a couple weeks ago I had a gall bladder attack and I went to L&D. It was covered, but if I went to the ER I would be paying for some of it out of pocket.

Wow another sapphire may soon be here! What a way to possibly kick start being considered term in 2 days! What time zone are you in? I'm in EST and 4pm is only 2 hours away, I wanna be able to stalk at the right time haha! What a change from yesterday, shows just how fast our bodies do work when we least expect it.

I know it'll be hard to but enjoy your walk. Hope it's a beautiful day where you are so you can really enjoy it, despite hoping to get at least 1 more week out of it Smile

Hope all the walking gets things going!! It sounds like baby time!!

Did I mention that the fact that we're starting to have take-home babies is freaking me out??

How exciting!!! Good luck if today is the day. All of the nurses since I've been at the hospital have commented on how many babies they've seen yesterday and today, must be the 'right' time Lol
