Back from the hospital…

without my baby. he’s still in my belly. 🙁 they sent me home because i’m in early labor and my cervix is only dilated 2. i’m effaced 80% now though. here’s how it happened.
2am: woke up feeling wetness and thought my water might have broke – went to bathroom, it was my bloody show.
230am: started having more severe contractions – they hurt like painful menstrual cramps.
slept for a while, until they got too bad.
330am: they got really painful and i had to wake jerry up. he started timing them for me.
430am: jerry took a shower. called the dr and doula. dr said go to the hospital at about 5 to 6.
610am: arrived at hospital. monitored intermittently. checked cervix, effacement. called dr. he said i was probably in early labor, but thought i would be more comfortable at home. i am to call him if contractions get closer together, if my water breaks or if my contractions become unbearable.
839am: arrived home.

i’m very disappointed. but at least i know it wasn’t a false alarm or something. i am in early labor. i just get to do it at home where i’m more comfortable. dr gave me ambien to help me relax and sleep, so i may take a bath first, i may just go right into bed. i am really exhausted right now.

dr called just now to check up on me. he said to call him about 12 or 1 or so. that was nice. 🙂

please pray.

–love–

    Wow, you are almost there! Most likely it’ll be today or tomorrow! How cool is that? (side note: I was taking a nap with Sarrah in my bed and I just looked over and she’s waking up. I thought I had managed to sneak out of bed without bothering her. Guess not.) I am keeping you in my prayers. These next couple of days are going to be HUGE on your list of ‘amazing & exhausting.’ Rest as much as you can and journal (even if on only paper) as much of the experience as possible.
