So yesterday at 4 p.m. my contractions started. The "OMG that really, really hurts" kind of contractions. They were coming every hour and 45 min. or so. Then I went to bed at 10 pm and had them every 1 hour, then every 40 min. then every 30 min. These were lasting at least 1 min. each. It was very painful. Jeremy woke up(finally), and we thought that this was it. So, because laying down was getting uncomfortable, and I was having trouble falling back asleep, I decided to hope in the tub. I really helped me to relax and take some of the pain away. But, the contractions increased. I had like 3-4 in a 40 minute time frame, but they didn't last as long. So, I woke Jer up again and told him that we probably needed to start thinking about getting moving in the direction of preparing for hospital. So he made me something to eat, I was starving! and I came downstairs and had eggs and waffles at 4 am.
The contractions had stopped a little bit so we decided to get some rest, we were both exhausted. We both feel asleep, and then the contractions started to be every 40 min, then every 50 min. So weird. But, I really, really appreciated the sleep. I didn't think I could make it on only 2 hours of sleep.
So, then at 8:00, Jer and I took the dogs for a walk. We did like 1.4 miles and I had one contraction during it.
So, that's where were at. Very frustrating. I'm at about 1 really painful contraction every hour. I'll get some little ones, that still hurt, intermittently. Jer is home with me because we thought we would be heading to the hospital, but now, who knows.
I'll try to keep everyone updated. Say your prayers, this really does hurt....
