Practice run down

Bobby and I headed to L&D late last night/early this morning as my contractions were 8 mins apart. They hooked me up to all the monitors and slowly the contractions start to spread out. The nurse wouldn't call Dr M and the dr on call wanted to give me meds to stop contractions. I opted to come home and "rest" instead. They want me to be 37 weeks, which is in 2 days.

Everyone wants me up and walking and all I really want to do is sleep, I am exhausted. IF I jump start labor today I won't be good during the whole process as I am completely worn out!

Go with what your body is telling you sweetie. If it says rest, then rest up while you can!

Hugs!

Thanks for keeping us updated.

Rest, while you can, you'll need every ounce of energy you have for labor. Sleep as much as you can so you'll be ready, since they are going to make you wait two days. Nap away if you can.

REST!!! If you are tired then rest. I could have pushed a lot less time if I had gotten more sleep, so if you can sleep then do it! Those girls will come when they are ready, when you feel up to walking go for it. But once you start the contractions will only get harder and more frequent.
