Today was the first of many "new" things. This is how the day progressed. I felt contractions all day. Well, not all day. Sporadically throughout the day, so I thought nothing of it. Continue to drink my water (2 liters a day) and continued working. That's when it started. I got in my car and began the drive home. I looked at the clock 4:19...and felt a contraction. Felt another one, looked at the clock 4:23. Continue to watch them on the entire drive home. For the next 20 minutes, I had 10 contractions. Texted my go to people, called my friend who recommended that I call the OB. But, I DON'T want to be one of those women. What if it was the real deal. However, I did call. The advice they gave me was...take 2 extra strength Tylenol, drink water and lay on my left side for a half hour. So, I did that. And the contractions stopped. I guess my sweet babe is not ready to come out yet, but uterus is warming up for big day. I cannot wait!

Wow! Crazy stuff...hope you can hold out a bit longer. I think I agree with your mom though. Not sure you'll make it until December. How about a Thanksgiving baby? :)
