No child!! I really really thought yesterday was it. But now Im done. I will never again think its time either till my water breaks, or I am actually admitted to the hospital and they tell me its baby time!

Yesterday I had sparodic contractions from who knows what time..well at 4pm I started timing them. They were between 3-4 minutes apart. And they hurt. I actually told me mom we had to go home (we were shopping) I was uncomfortable and I just had the overwhelming urge to be home. We went home had dinner, and I continued to contract. Around 7ish I decided to go for a walk around the block to see if that would help. Boyyy did that make my painful contractions more painful. It was super hottt yesterday so after the walk I wanted to walk more but it was too hott to be outside so we headed to walmart my contractions got even more painful and by this time I was really having to breath through them! And man was I waddling BADDDD it must have been a sight to see me coming!! Couple people made comments about how painful my belly looked and I agreed for the first time but that was only cuz I was having contractions. By the time we left contractions were 2-3 minutes apart. We went home my mom made me sit to see if they would settle down if I did. Well they didnt, so I started bouncing on my ball. By this time I really thought it was time. My aunt came over and we went around the block 2 more times before they convienced me to call on call.

On call was shocked that it was 9pm and I had been having regular contractions since 4pm but was just calling..well thats me. Anywhoo so they have me come in.

I get there and my contractions basically slow down to 4-5 minutes apart. Mannn was I mad!! I couldnt believe it. But what really upset me was that when she checked me (which by the way I swear she was going for more than feeling my cervix) I was the same as I had been at my appt on thursday!!! All those stupid hurtful contractions for NOTHING!

I was MAD and I mean mad. Before I was good through the contractions cuz I really thought they were going somewhere and Kennedis birthday would be soon..well to know that they werent doing a dang thing I just couldnt take them anymore. I was a total B and very horomonal. My back was killing me, I didnt want to be hooked up to the monitors. I wanted the contractions to stop, I really just wanted to go home!

But Kennedis heart rate was high Im talking the whole time inbewteen 170-190. Which they said it was ok if it was coming down while she wasnt moving, but it wasnt. So I had to stay hooked up and contracting in pain for another hour, and get a full bag of fluid cuz I was "dehydrated" which yes it was seriously hott yesterday but I always have mad water on me and down it like you wouldnt believe..but it did bring her heart rate down..but do nothing for my contractions..

Oh yea and did I forget to mention that I was measuring 43cm!!! I could understand measuring 39cm cuz Im almost 39 weeks but omg thats still 4 weeks ahead!! So they decided to send me for a bpp (ultrasound). Kennedi passed that no problem, she just wouldnt give them a full 30 seconds of practice breathing.

The girl was soooooooo nice. She told us everything she was looking at, and even rechecked that it is ONE little GIRL! I get lots of its twins, and its a boy comments. So HA to everyone who thinks that! YOUR WRONG!

She even showed us that Kennedi needed to pee! Her bladder was super full! haha must have been all the fluid I was getting! And I got a pic of Kennedi sticking her tounge out!!

So after that I was still contracting but I was in a much better mood cuz I got to see my baby girl.

At this point it was 1.30am. Me and my mom both just wanted to go home but we had to wait for the results of the bpp. Everything came back normal. But my fluid levels are on the "high end for normal" which kinda scares me..but Im gonna talk to me doc more about it when I go in this week. And I will have to have another ultrasound they said cuz of what I was measuring..YAY!!

And she rechecked me before I left and decided that I felt more closed but still 80% effaced. So not even the half cm like I was told! I just want this little girl to come. Im glad I got to see her again last night, but I wish it would have been in person!!

L&D just called me this morning. My doc looked over my strips from yesterday and wants me to come back in this morning to get Kennedi back on the monitors to make sure that everything is ok. If its not 100% she said Ill be havin another bpp probably. Im kinda worried.. I dont know what to think. Im going in at 10am Ill make sure to upate after!

I totally understand how frustrating that is. I thought I was going into labor with Rylie around 12 AM and I was having painful contractions all night. It hit 6 AM and they got closer, around 5-6 mins apart so I called my sister and told her to come over because she lives 45 mins away and I needed someone to watch Taylor. I told Andy to go on into work and I'd call if it got serious. Well by 10 AM they were anywhere from 3-6 mins apart and I started bleeding down there so I called my midwife and she told me to come in for a labor check. I got in the tub and went and I was still only 2 centimeters and 70% effaced!!! She told me to go home and take Tylenol and sleep... no labor.
Hang in there, Kennedi WILL be here soon ((HUGS))

Is baby Aubrey Alana or Jacob Robert?!

*hugs* Dont worry about the lots of fluids -- I had a high end of normal too and all that happened was I flooded the room really good They should watch if you go overdue though -- more fluid = baby can get HUGE. Had I went 2 weeks late, I woulda given birth to a 9-10 pounder.

Hope Kennedi is doing well. I think she just needs to go ahead and make her appearance already! Keep us updated.
He's here!

Ugh, how frustrating! You mentioned how hot out it was so I'm wondering if maybe you were having all of these contractions because you were dehydrated? Next time contractions seem to be bothersome and closer together, don't walk. Lay down on your left side and drink 8 ounces of water. If they keep coming and getting stronger, that's labor, if they slow down then it's just false labor. *hugs*

Good luck hon, I hope everything goes okay at your appt today. I know sometimes they say if you get really excited and have adrenaline pumping that your contractions and labor can actually slow down or stall.

I hope everything goes well and that your little girl decides to come soon for you!
