I fell asleep early tonight, and have been up off an on for three hours with really bad pain in my pelvis. I thought nothing of it, since Thrasher dropped really low last night right as I was falling asleep. They started to get worse about 45 minutes ago, so I whipped out my handy dandy iPhone app - 6 in 30 minutes, each a minute long, every six minutes.
Panic. Ok, not total panic, but me going "WTF? Is THIS what labor feels like?!??"
So now I'm in the bath tub at 1:54am hoping it makes them go away... But it isn't. They are more tolerable, but not going away. I've stopped timing for the moment (choosing instead to consult Dr. Google and think about how stupid I was not to save what I'm working on at the office in the shared folder since we're on a tight filing deadline), and am torn between "Could I really be in labor?" and "No!!! I want my birth center birth! I need to make it four more days!!!"
So, point of all of this - when do I call? I don't want to bug her at 2am for nothing, but if I get out of here and they are still six minutes apart (or closer), I'm not being paranoid by placing a call, right!?
