Well at about 6ish last night I started getting sick to my stomach. Then around 7:30 the contractions started, they were probably 10 minutes apart. I decided to lay down and try to sleep, but they hurt pretty badly.
At about 8:45 I told Will, well warned would be a better word. I took a shower and again tried to rest.
They started getting closer together and more painful.
I called my midwife at about 11:30, and told her what was going on. She came over about midnight and checked me and checked the baby. Everything was good, I was 2 cm and 50% effaced. Baby's heartrate was perfect and her head is still down (although still fairly high.)
We talked a bit.
Rhayn woke up and hung out on the couch with us while we sat through some more.
Midwife had me eat some yogurt, drink some water and try to rest. I sent Will upstairs around 2 am with Rhayn to try to get some rest. If this was it, it would be a while and them being tired wouldn't be much help.
At 3 am, the contractions had pretty much stopped, and I had actually fallen asleep for a while. The midwife checked the baby's heartrate again and went home.
I climbed the stairs and snuggled into bed next to Will. I think I had a couple of pretty bad contractions right before I fell asleep.
This morning, we all slept in until 8:30.
I lost my mucous plug sometime midmorning (no idea when because I have been dozing on and off all morning. I am so tired!)
The midwife said that she has done this with every one of her pregnancies, had 2-3 false starts. Its like priming the cervix for actual labor. I just really hope the next time is IT, because I don't want a few more nights like that. Then again- it could be another week, too. I am going to try to go for a walk later this evening, lets hope it gets labor started and that we have this baby soon!
