Woke up. Looked at my cellphone. It was 8:46am.
We decided to go to the Hospital. I took a shower. While waiting for my Ex's wife to drop off my oldest son Ty, I went over some rules with Duke. My Ex's Wife came up with Ty and said if we needed anything to let her know. Chris & I talked with the kids for a minute, kissed 'em goodbye and we were on our way.
When we got to the triage area of Labor & Delivery, I saw my Nurse Midwife and felt relieved. Checked in at about 10am, had to pee in a cup, get a gown on and wait in a room. The Charge Nurse strapped on the baby heart monitor and the contractions monitor. My Nurse Midwife came in and checked my cervix, 1.5cm dilated and she commented that my "bloody show" was more than normal but perfectly fine. We discussed a few things and said they would discharge me in an hour if the baby was fine.
C found the Hospital's FREE Wifi was super fast and that we didn't have any cellphone reception in the Labor & Delivery section of the Hospital.
Thank God our baby is fine. Checked out at about Noon and we were starving.
Every pregnancy is different. This being my 4th pregnancy, I still don't know what to expect and no, it's not like riding a bike. It doesn't get any easier. I have to laugh at people that think it does. There are no routines. You play it by ear, by the baby's rules. You do what the baby wants.
Someone who deserves huge props is Michelle Duggar
. I couldn't put my mind, body and soul through 20 pregnancies.
I have an appt. tomorrow morning and we should know a little more then but so far, no regular contractions. Thanks for all the well wishes and love!
