False Labor

Today Delena called me at 1:30 to tell me she was having contractions. We had been timing them each night to see if she was going into labor, but today she said they were much more intense and they were 10 minutes apart. An hour later she called to say they were even closer, now to about 5 minutes. She could hardly stand because of how intense they were. She called the doctor and she said to come home and get into a warm bath. This would stop or start them. When I got home at 5:30 she was now 3 minutes apart. So what did we do? Went to the hospital.

Well after about an hour they were still intense, but Delena had not dilated any more than the day before. So the doctor sent us home. They gave Delena a morphine shot to ease the pain and stop the contractions. Which it did.

I guess we have to wait until Friday!

I felt so bad for Delena, she told me all about this. I hate false labor too. THey did the same thing to me. Sent me home with meds and didn't start me until 4 days later. Pain the whole time. Oh well, the babies are out, are cute, and well.
