Still waiting….


The contractions have spaced out now but they are still about the same in intensity. They knocked off completely for about thirty minutes at one point but then started up again on their own. Of course, I have no idea how this all works but I really can’t see it stopping altogether now that it’s been going along like this for over six hours. It just may take a while. I really don’t know what to expect, though. I had pitocin in the hospital both times, even the first time, when I had already started labor on my own, so I have no experience with how labor progresses without the extra drug kick. I’m hoping it’s a good sign that they began again on their own after taking that break. Hopefully if this wasn’t really “it” they’d have stayed gone. It seems like most people I know who have false alarms have contractions for a while and then stop; they don’t keep starting and stopping again all day long.
I can hope, anyway.

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
