Okay, to start off, I had lost 3 days worth of mucus plug... had frequent (we're talking 4 times in one day) BMs...
Let's just say, it was a LONG day yesterday. I was contracting all day, on and off. I got home from work and laid down. They started getting stronger and more frequent. So, I called Dh to come home and called my friend to take the girls. All our stuff got packed into the car and we went to the hospital.
We got there and got hooked up and, of course, the contracting slowed down.... I was 3cm dilated and 50% effaced. They told me that they trust my judgment with this being #4 for me. So, I walked the hospital for 2hrs to see if they would subside or get stronger. Well, they got further apart and alot less strong. I had them check me again 2hrs later and I was still 3cm and 50%. I had lost MORE mucus plug and it had alot of blood in it. Not sure if the blood was from being checked or if it was a sign of something, but all we can do is hope that being checked twice in one nice will bring SOMETHING on. So, we decided to just head back home. She told me to be sure and come in immediately when I start contracting again. I have a history of fast labors and with me already at 3cm they want me to play it really safe.
The contracting completely subsided. I ate and went to bed. I am so sick of these contracting games! I am ready and obviously my body is too! I don't want her in there too long with her size being so big already!
I am going to go walking again today (run a bunch or errands) and dtd if I can convince Dh (he is a little creeped out by the blood and mucus talk ). I will be taking the stairs at work tomorrow etc. I am READY!!!
