I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

False Alarms

I had contractions last night every 2-5 minutes until about 9pm. I got into a bath, lit a candle, drank some tea....and NOTHING.

I went to bed.

10:30pm they came back MUCH stronger and every 10 minutes. They continued throughout the night. I even had bloody show and other goopy stuff. In the middle of the night things stalled AGAIN. I just had STRONG contractions every 30 mins or so.

This morning..NOTHING. NADA. ZIP. ZERO.

This is the same labor I had with my first. Long and drawn out. I certainly did NOT expect this. Once my last two labors started they were OVER in 5 hours or so.

Today I'm tired. Hopefully I won't have to do this for another 24hrs.
