the plan...

So, the plan is to have this baby Friday morning. Yesterday, my birthday, I was having contractions. Finally around 5:30pm they had me come into the hospital to get checked out. I was having contractions, but they wanted to check and make sure it wasn't a bladder infection or dehydration that would be causing the contractions.
Nope...they were contractions.
Next...they checked to see if I was having any "cervical changes." Which means...have I dialated at all.
What does this mean???
They kept me overnight to make sure they didn't start getting worse or that "the changes" didn't start happening.
Again, NO! I had an IV all night and the contractions seemed to stop.
So...they sent me home this morning! NO baby!
That's ok...the plan is to have the baby Friday and I wasn't really ready to have him last night! I'm not on any restrictions as of now. I can still go to work...just need to relax when I can and drink plenty of fluids.
IF....they start back up and get worse, we will go back in and have the baby!!
SO....the plan is still to have the baby on Friday morning! Although I was told to go home and get everything ready just in case!

I'm thinking of you and praying for you Shannon!! I hope your first couple days with kiddos went well--hope the class looks hopeful and that you can get them all in line before you leave for a few weeks! I'll be down the beginning of October--I hope I can see you and meet the new addition then!
