Checking In

False labor is arguably one of the most annoying things on the planet!  I had contractions off and on all afternoon on Friday and by supper-time, they were really uncomfortable.  I went for a walk and got them really ramped up to the point of painful and then settled down on the couch for a while to see if they would keep up.  I started timing my contractions and they varied between 2 and 8 minutes apart for a good couple of hours, so I called my mother to have her make the drive over to our house so she could stay with the kids. 

Wouldn't you know it....the dang things quit about 20 minutes before she pulled in the driveway.  Rats.  She spent the night in case I went into labor in the wee hours, but nothing happened.  So, I guess the good news is that I got to have a nice impromptu visit with my mother, but the bad news is that she had to drive two hours, but didn't get to meet her new grandson! 

Nothing really has happened ever since.  I'm trying to avoid the temptation to toss a couple of tablespoons of castor oil into a smoothie.
