Yesterday was quite a day...
Had a midwife appointment at 1030am and was planning on going to lunch and a movie with DH afterwards ( it was our 4 year wedding anniversary). Well those plans got thrown out the window, because Midwife was concerned that I haven't gained any weight for 6 weeks. So we got sent for an ultrasound to check the baby. The Doctor we saw wanted to do a NST, and the baby looked just fine, but i had some contractions that we're showing on the strip.Didn't think much of it, neither did the doc. So they did an ultrasound and baby looked Fab, weighing 7 pounds 7 ozs and his biophysical score was 8/8. So all was well..wahoo..

But.... the day doesn't end there.....

DH and I picked up the kiddos and we get home finally around 4pm, and then the contractions start picking up to about 5 minutes apart but not real intense yet, discharge has some pink so I started to think that we'd be having a baby that night. I told DH to get the birth pool blown up and I made sure the bedroom was cleaned. Contractions continued on and I was just waiting until they got real intense to call the midwife. I thought for sure it was going to happen.... and then.... the contractions tapered off around 1130ish... I went to sleep... and woke up this morning with not a single contraction...

man... you'd think I'd know false labor since this is my 3rd kid...
