False Alarm

Well, it happened. 

We made a trip to the hospital and were sent home.  I guess it was bound to happen.  I woke Tuesday morning with some minor contractions, nothing out of the ordinary.  I went to my appointment, where I was checked  - 2cm and 70% effaced.  And that must have triggered me for the rest of the day.  The contractions were consistent anywhere from 4-7 minutes apart (based on my non overly accurate iphone app) and lasting at least a minute long.  By the evening I was have pretty bad accompanying back pain and by 9pm more pain overall.  They told me to come in to get checked.

We pretty much knew it wasn't the real the deal, but part of me was terrified of poo-pooing it and then being on the side of the road delivering a baby because I waited too long. 

Well, no change from the morning and were told to go home and wait.  We got back home around 1am.  I finally ate and went to bed.  

Contractions are back to being their good ol' inconsistent selves.  

This is when I'd welcome another broken bag of waters.  
Going home with a baby.

Anyway, that's all I got. Hopefully she doesn't get too comfortable in there. 

Maybe I can entice her with some turkey, stuffing, and the Hayes family cranberry sauce (seriously, if you hate cranberries - which most do - you life will be changed with our recipe!)


  1. Eeekkk!!!! Sorry you are so uncomfortable! I hope K comes soon so you can enjoy lots and lots of turkey!

  2. Oh bummer. Well hopefully she stays cooking through Thanksgiving so you all can enjoy one more holiday of a family of three!! Hang in there!

    Hoping for an easy delivery! Maybe she wants to come out so you can fill up on all the Thanksgiving goodness?!

  4. Thinking of you, friend!!! Hope she makes her appearance soon!

  5. I think it's tradition to be sent home at least once! Here's hoping for comfort and a labor free turkey day (on the plus side if you have her on tday, your husband won't have to take time off!!)

  6. Eeekkk! Hang in there! You're well on your way!

  7. Thinking about you girl! Fingers crossed no more false alarms and she is here SOON!!!

  8. Good luck to you! She'll be here soon!
