First things first…
I woke up around 5am Saturday morning with contractions and could not go back to sleep. So, I did what any blogger would do- got out of bed and scheduled 3 weekend posts.
Several hours and contractions later, I felt it was time to find out if this was the real thing. The kids were sent off to Grandma’s and we headed for the hospital.
After hours of strong contractions 5-10 minutes apart, nothing. Not dilated. Sent home. Same thing all day Sunday, but no real progress.
Last night I did not get much sleep, so I went to see my doctor today to find out if anything had changed. I am dilated to a 3, but not in active labor. My due date is actually not until April 24th, however my girls were both 10 days early.
I will keep y’all posted!
