Wow, contractions, contractions, contractions. Amy spent most of the entire day dealing with contractions. They kept getting stronger and closer together. But 6:00 last night they were 4-5 minutes apart. After talking with our midwife a couple times during this, she kept suggesting that we could come if we wanted to have someone look at us. Well, we figured that it was best to get it figured out.

Of course, they had to actually admit us and Amy had to get all hooked up to the monitors. It was strange (since it reminded me of everything with Carter's birth), but also exciting. Once all this happens, the contractions start to slow down and get weaker. So that was it. We were there for about 2 hours, watched a little cable, got fimilar with the rooms (very nice by the way), and they said we were okay to go. Well, at least they stopped for a while so Amy could sleep.

I just hope this doesn't keep up for the next 8 weeks, so that Amy can keep moving in relative comfort.

When I saw the picture you posted last week, the superman pic, I thought you guys had the new arrival. It took me a couple of minutes to figure it out.
Good luck to Amy. Thank god I'm a man.
