It seems nearly every day now I experience false labor. Of course, last time I went to the maternity center due to false labor, I got the paperwork to help me know the difference between false labor and true labor. Ummm...my false labor is so convincing that it pretty much covers all the bases on that check list! They usually say "call if nothing changes after an hour," but my false labor can last for HOURS and then suddenly subside. I spend the whole time praying for the Lord to show me whether or not I'm in labor because I do NOT want to go back to the maternity center only to be sent home. It's an inconvenience, an expense, and requires a lot of planning since I have 3 children who need childcare on top of finding someone to drive me. It's not like hubby can just pop on home whenever. He's making ends meet!
One thing for sure is that the false labor is coming more frequently and stronger each time. Yesterday, I was actually bent over the kitchen counter breathing and moaning a little. Just before hubby came home, it stopped, but I was incredibly tired and sore. I've been up for hours now in the middle of the night because once again, pain.
It is truly getting close. I feel like I've been in early labor all week. My next OB appointment is Wednesday. Of course, now it is the weekend and my only choices are maternity center or sit tight at home and wait it out.
