I've had a very eventful last week. On last Wednesday I started having contractions around 7pm. I didn't think anything of it, its normal for me to have some every 20 minutes or for an hour then they go away, so Brian and I went shopping. While shopping I noticed they were getting closer together and more intense. I told him we needed to finish up so I could go home and relax and start timing the frequency of the contractions. The started off around 12 minutes apart then 8 minutes and went down to 5 minutes before we headed to the hospital. While at the hospital the contractions got down to being 2 minutes apart, but my dilation never changed. We sat at the hospital for 3 hours before they let me go home and told me to just relax. Once we got home I laid down in my comfy bed again they started spreading out and I was able to fall asleep. Since then I have only had a few strong contractions and nothing to regular. On Thursday and Friday I was so sore from the contractions all I did was relax.
