Home Again

We're home again. I'm still contracting more than most women in labor, but a lot less than earlier. Fortunately, I still didn't dialate anymore and once again did well on the test that predicts labor in the next two weeks. That means, short of my water breaking, I will NOT need steroids for the baby's lungs.

Contractions are shown on a meter at the hospital, ranging from 0 to 12. I had several between 8 and 10. Ouch. In between, I had tons of others between 4 and 8.

On the way to the hospital, all the roads were flooded and we had to drive around for an hour to get there. I really thought I would have to get a police escort.

Thanks for the thoughts and prayers. So far, so good.

I'm glad baby has decided he still doesn't want to come out! Yeah!

oh man! I am sorry that this is happening to you. Good thing you weren't in labor. A hour to get to the hospital! You might of had a road side baby.
Maybe all these contractions will help you have a fast and smooth delivery at the RIGHT TIME! Not yet. Stay in there little one.
I am so glad that you won't need the shot for baby's lungs
This must be so frustrating for me. Maybe it was from stress? Baby is keeping you on your toes...
