False Alarm

Week 29 and my paranoia has officially taken over. Mary Kate and Ashely gave us a little scare last night that landed us in the Labor and Delivery until 11:00pm.

I was feeling a little crampy yesterday afternoon and laid down with the Munchkin to rest. When we got up things seemed normal and I was trying my best to write it off as ligament pains. After dinner, the girls are usually very kicky and punchy, but after about an hour and 1 pretty solid feeling contraction, I wasn't feeling any movement. Hubby was upstairs putting the Munchkin down when I decided, I would rather be safe than sorry, so off to the hospital we went.

They hooked me up to the monitors, checked for dilation (none, phew!) and of course the little trouble makers started having a party in my uterus, making me look like a complete and total psycho chick. After tracing their heart beats for over an hour, the Nurses and Doctor on call agreed that everything looked fine. I only contracted once in that time and the heartbeats accelerated through the contraction, as they should.

Crisis averted. I was not prepared to have these babies last night. Hair wasn't washed, legs (and wussy) weren't shaved... Note to self: No more short cuts in the shower until further notice.

Bikini wax time! Worked for me. I wasn't having a crowd of people stare at an unkempt hoochie. I'm so glad it was a false alarm. I'm telling you, MK & A are hanging in for another month at least. You gotta make it to April 1. You need some diamonds for that mother's ring.
