This "patient" wouln't be you again would it ???
Well, not again
Never had a false alarm before. When I went to my appointment today they did the last U/S (kid weighs around 7 1/2 pds already) and the doctor said I'm 2 cm dilated...we figure I caught the virus that has been going around, my kids had it and they said when you get as far along as I am and you get sick it can throw you into contractions.
But everything is calm now. I'm still embarrassed. I know you are supposed to go when either your water breaks or your contractions get regular and 3-5 minutes apart but the pain I was in last night I thought I had broken the mold.
Anyway, while I was hopeful it was time I certainly wouldn't try to manipulate them into inducing early. Wouldn't want to take a chance on harming little doobie.
In fact, I told them when I showed up I couldn't tell if I was just sick or was trying to go into labor. And I live 30 min from the birthing center so I hated the thought of getting stuck on the side of the road.
There were two OB nurses there, one was very friendly but the other certainly wasn't any barrel of laughs. She was quite large and kind of scowling and after I managed to struggle on the cot she flipped me over jerked the sheet over me and snapped those monitors around my stomach. I was sure to mind my p's and q's around her.
But they were both yawning and tired, I really don't know how the night shift people stand it.
