Keeping Ya'll in the Loop

So, this may be TMI for some of you, but...here goes.

We went up to my weekly doctor's appointment this afternoon and after a night and day of some contractions, I was between 3 and 4 cm dilated.  Our doctor gave us the option of going in to the hospital and having them do a contraction assessment or heading home to get a little rest and waiting for my contractions to be about 5 minutes apart.  We opted to go to Costco.  Upon getting home, my contractions have been about 5 minutes apart for the last 40 minutes or so.  We are going to have the dinner my mom and I have been fixing (Chicken Tamale Casserole, if you are curious) and then David and I will head back up to the hospital.  Hopefully they let me stay.  I hate the fact that it is 30 minutes away and I'd much rather be on the safe side.

So, please keep us in your thoughts and prayers and we will keep you all posted!

Happy Wednesday from the Central Coast!
