False Alarm #2
How embarrassing to go to the hospital for the second time for them to only send you home!!! Lat Sunday a week ago we went to the hospital and, contractions about 3-5 minutes but no change. The nurse pretty much told us, see you in a few hours. Then I am crapping all day yesterday and start having contractions around 3 or 4 and was not going in unless they continued or got worse. So finally at 11 last night we had been timing them every 3 minutes apart and decided to go in because they were worse than last time and close together. We get there, and are hooked up to the monitor and after feeling this for 5 hours still no change, but she wanted me to wait an hour to re-check and see if there was anything. She came back and said you are having some really good contractions, lets check and see. Of course no change. So again we went home. This time she did give me a sleeping pill that would either keep the contractions going or make them stop, but wither way she said it would relax my body, so the babies heart rate wouldn't keep going up! So i was still feeling some contractions after taking the pill but after an hour or so I was out. i woke up a few times with some pain but nothing terrible. So i guess it stopped them because here I am Sunday afternoon with no contractions and no baby. Not the end of the world because I go in tomorrow night for an induction just really frustrating because with Lincoln i felt the contractions the same maybe even no as bad and i was ready. I have no idea what this means, other than i have no idea what my body is doing. Anyone knows please let me know, otherwise the hospital staff is going to start calling me by name, every time I go in there.
