I woke up this morning with contractions. They were pretty strong. Not consistent though, about 5-10 mins apart. When I was here on Wednesday they said to come back if the contractions started again. So I'm back and they are going to stop the contractions again. I'm 1 cm dilated but not gonna have a baby today.
Some drama now. I caught a stomach bug and was up with vomiting & diarrhea starting at 9:30 last night. Also my contractions came back. The more dehydrated I got, the worse the contractions. At 4:00 this morning I was in severe pain with contractions every 1-2 mins. I woke up husband & we are at the hospital again. I've had almost 3 liters of fluid and I've only peed once so I was dehydrated. Still having painful contractions but only about every 15 minutes. The baby is lethargic so they are going to do an ultrasound to look at him. I'll keep you posted.
The ultrasound looked good and I'm still only dilated to 1. I guess technically that's good news because he isn't coming out yet. But to be honest that pain was so bad I was hoping they would take him out. So I am praying the fluids do something.
Being sent home again. I am still having contractions every few minutes and there is nothing they can do. They are not as severe as the ones this morning but god almighty they still hurt. I don't know what I'm going to do Nanu. I have a job and 1 1/2 year old I need to take care of. I just pray this is from being dehydrated and it is better by tonight.

I was just thinking that I wonder if they will put you on bedrest. How will that work with work? Do you have time to take off?
My co-worker is due next month and is doctor ordered to "take it easy" so our HR department REQUIRED that she only work half days from now until baby is born next month. So she works 11-3 every day instead of 7-3:30.
