Well, it seems it was just a cruel early April fools joke! I am a little pissed to say the least! I woke up at 8 AM with contractions, They were every 2 minutes exactly (yes, from start to start) I stayed at home until my husband got home from work at noon. Then we went up. They monitored me for a bit, and said I was having good contractions. Then they checked me and said I was still 3cm, and 80%, so they sent me home.

After being home for a few hours they started to fizzle out.... They are happening every 10 minutes or so now and they don't really hurt much anymore.... I honestly don't mind that he isn't coming now, I can wait until the 4th. I just feel teased, you know? What the the hell was the point of all that contracting if nothing was to come of it? ARGH! They were good contractions too! They were going up to 120 from from a 40 low on the monitor....

Anyway, now I feel like a complete psychopath! I go from being ok with the whole situation, to ten minutes later sobbing my eyes out and calling God a sexist bully.... I sure hope I am not completely unstable by the time he finally comes! lol

So I will be here a while longer. I have decided to focus on April 4th. He isn't coming until then. That way if he does come sooner it is just just a bonus!

I really need to focus on something else entirely. I wish I could forget I am pregnant at all, so time wouldn't crawl so slowly! Unfortunately it is hard to not think about an 8+ pound person dancing around inside of you, he really makes himself known!

Sorry for the rambling! I am just frustrated!

Patrick did that to me too!! I'm sorry honey! In my case though, I was really relieved because it was happening when Husband was out of town for his grandfather's funeral.

He'll be here soon...I say to pass time if you scrap or knit. Or believe it or not coloring really helps pass time for me. It is very relaxing too.

I really thought it was oing to be tonight too.

I know how you feel cheyenne did this to me for 6days with no change either it was really hard. But by the sound of it he is getting himself ready, so that's a good thing. He will be here soon.

Maybe he was just making sure everything was good and ready so that when the time comes it will be super easy and speedy. I'll cross my fingers that the time races by and he's in your arms in no time.

Sounds like your body is warming up for the big day! Keep us posted, hope he is here soon! I was so stir crazy at the end with my DD too. (I was on modified bed rest/restricted activity for almost 4 weeks before her birth too). It will be over soon and you'll be wishing you could lie in bed and rest!
