And home again.
A little gush of very warm fluid, then another-- not urine, so I called and they told me to come in to see if it is amnionic fluid. Nope. They said Lochia maybe...but that does not make sense. So I have no idea.
But I am contracting every 5-6 minutes (they feel like B&H with some fun intense moments with major cervical sensation), and I lost my mucus plug at the hospital...
and while they did check (good lord) I am not at all dilated. Just not.
So-- home to rest and eat and drink and walk and shower and rest more..
they said to call again when the contractions are 3-5 minutes apart, intense, and lasting a minute each. Or if another gush of fluid...
They said they think they'll see us before morning, but if not...we have a morning appointment if nothing happens between now and then.
Babe looked great on the monitor
and that is what matters MOST.
Contraction right now, wow. Feels surreal. But I also know it could be days yet.
So-- I do realize this: regardless of how this plays out, I am not sure when I will update. If I don't, my sister or my darlin' eventually will.
Thank you all for your amazing support and encouragement and kindness.
This whole thing is one hell of a ride.
