I just got home from the hospital. I had a very busy day at work yesterday... and when I got home from work, I was just exhausted. I started having a few contractions, so I layed down. The contractions kept coming, so I actually went to bed. Later yet, I was awakened by stronger contractions, still about 5 minutes apart.
So, off to the hospital I went. I actually left Benson home with the kids with the thought that they would be stopping the contractions one way or another anyway.
I got there at 1am. They watched me and baby for a while, and saw I was having contractions... so they started an IV. They did a few tests then had me rest while they waited for results.
By 6am, the contractions were pretty much gone all on their own, and they let me go home. The nurse was very nice and told me I did everything exactly by the book, and if it were to happen again, to do the same things. That made me feel better.
So, I am grateful there's no baby yet. (I'm only 32 weeks by the way). I feel somewhat proud to have joined the ranks of all the mom's in the world who have made the trek to the hospital only to turn around and go home. LOL. Now I just need to catch up on some sleep.
