Contractions

Last night, I really thought we'd have a new family member by now. I was having pretty intense contractions about 6 minutes apart from 2-4 in the morning.

Once I called the doctor on call, they all but stopped.

We decided to go in at 6 anyway, since Bob was literally working all day and both of my parents were out of town. If something happened, I'd rather not be stranded at home with Baby Plum, scared to drive.

They monitored me, and let me out around 9 I think. The contractions, while painful, weren't close enough. Plus, my doctor was off for the day.

My dad had taken Little Elvis to the cabin for President's Day, but they headed back once we called them. They were home shortly after we left the hospital. Bob went to work a little late.

I spent the day trying to time the contractions, but they have been all over the place. Ten minutes to 25 minutes. No rhyme or reason, although if both boys were being super-wild, that did seem to cause a contraction.

These are super-painful. I'm even more ready now, even though the timing would be more difficult for everyone.

My next appointment is Wednesday morning. I know it's only 3 days until the doctor-selected due date, but these contractions are no fun.

Plus, they seem to be making Little Elvis way more wild than usual. I'm glad tomorrow is a school day.
