So I'm at my 10 days left mark today, and I started having contractions 5 mins apart at 12:45 this afternoon.<br><br>
I'm still having them, but they're so mild. Just a little crampy but nothing more. I didn't really think they were anything at all, but everyone kept telling me to call the Dr. So I did, and wen to the hospital (this is my first baby, so I'm doing what's comfortable for me which is a hospital birth). I'm only a fingertip dilated, and they sent me home from the hospital and said I should call my OB when they get more intense/painful.<br><br>
I guess I have a ways to go, but at least the contractions are still coming. I was worried they'd stop. Everyone please send me baby wishes! I hope he arrives soon!

Well, it's 11:20 and I'm still having them 5 mins apart without fail and without any pain except for very faint cramping. I'm really hoping this is early labor!<br><br>
Now I have to decide whether I should go to bed or stay up. I don't know if I'll be able to sleep!

Nope, no baby. I went to bed and woke up and the contractions were gone. I had some BHs today but nothing as regular as yesterday.. So sad. Oh well. I still have 9 days til my due date. They tell me the babies do come out eventually. I guess I'll just have to be patient!<br><br>
It just would have been perfect this weekend. I had a really awful week of work last week and I'm not looking forward to going back on Monday.
