Don't get your hopes up family and friends. This is really no update, just a venting avenue for me right now (you will be glad later that I have calmed down a bit before I sat down to write this).
As I said in the previous post, I have had contractions ever since the doctor stripped my membranes yesterday morning. Brian has had the stop watch out and they have been anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes apart. They tend to not be consistent for very long periods of time. Last night we thought that today would be "THE" day but I guess we were wrong. During the night I had some really strong contractions and had to get up around 2:30 am and sleep in the recliner. I finally got some more sleep and then this morning contractions were pretty regular. I decided to go take a shower and Brian did too, hoping that we would be on our way to the hospital within a couple of hours. After the shower I sat down and my contractions were further apart. I was so DISGUSTED that I told Brian to go to work. Not worth him missing a day of work for nothing.
I have since stopped timing the contractions because it just DISAPPOINTS me. I think I like the other way I delivered Mili. I went in to the hospital and they broke my water and I had Mili within 7 hours. This contracting for days (oh really almost two weeks now) is for the birds (although they lay eggs and don't know if they contract...smile).
Sorry for such a gloomy post but I have to get it out. I am just mad that things are not happening on my time line (can we all say....CONTROL FREAK). Hope to have better news on my next post.
Love you ALL!!!
