True or False?

8:51 pm — As I sit here and type this, I am having a contraction. I have been having them since about noon today — on and off and not quite regular or painful enough to warrant going to the hospital. For about 2 hours today they were coming about every 6 minutes and lasting at least 45 seconds. But the intensity didn’t increase and then they slowed down. They’ve since tapered off in terms of frequency but they’ve become more intense (maybe a 2 or 3 on a scale of 1 to 10 in terms of pain). I thought we’d be heading to the hospital by now and that we’d have a 2007 baby, but now I think I’ll get to sleep in my own bed tonight since things haven’t progressed. This is all new to me, experiencing what could be false labor, since my labor started spontaneously with Mallory when my water broke. I’ve since learned that only 10 percent of  labors start with the water breaking. Playing this waiting game is a bit confusing and a little nerve wracking! We’ll keep you posted. 🙂
