So I was having contractions again yesterday for a couple hours every 7-10 minutes apart. I called my OB and they said to drink lots of water and take a warm bath, and if they don't slow down, to go to labor and delivery. I was also having some moderate lower back pain. The contractions didn't slow down, so we drove to labor and delivery where they hooked me and baby up to monitors. They did the dreaded cervix check, and I was only 2 cm dilated and 40% effaced. The baby was monitored for 20 more minutes or so, where they said to drink LOTS of fluids and hopefully that would help.
Here I am at the computer, drinking my 4th bottled water for the day, feeling constantly like I've had too much to drink. I'm still having contractions, but not as strong. No baby yet, but I don't think it will be much longer now!
