What a Week!

Monday morning around 3:30, I started having contractions. So we started timing them. For an hour they were almost exactly 6.5 minutes apart. YAY! Then we decide to try to rest for a while. Well, I couldn't sleep at all. I started thinking about work (I had my computer with me), so I got up to send a couple of emails. Then I took a shower. The contractions were still coming. The day before I had false labor off and on all day, so I knew the ones I was having Monday morning were real.

We took Jacob to school and went to the hospital. We got there around 9:00 I guess. They hooked me up to all of the machines and asked me a million questions. They monitored my contractions for 2 hours and determined it was false labor again. :/ The contractions were not hard enough or quite consistent enough.

Yesterday was pretty uneventful. I decided to take Jacob to the doctor for this cough he has had for a couple of weeks. He woke up at 4:30 yesterday morning and it took him over an hour to get back to sleep because of the cough. I conveniently scheduled the appointment for the early afternoon so that I could work half of the day and be free the rest of the day.

Today I was hoping to wake up in horrible pain so that we could meet Andrew. No such luck, but the day is young.

Do you really want to spend your birthday in the hospital? I'm guessing your answer is YES!! Hang in there! At least Jacob is on the road to recovery, cuz you don't want Andrew to get his cough. Have a happy birthday. We're thinking of you.
