Is It Time Yet???

So, this morning I felt some contractions beginning around 4:30am. It was really exciting because they seemed to be coming every 10 minutes. At 5am the alarm clock rang and DearHubby got up. I informed him of the contractions and asked him if he would be able to turn around easily on his way to work if this was the real thing. He told me he could easily turn around, but he suggested that he stay home until I was sure...He then suggested that I walk around and change my activity to see if anything changes.

I got up and paced in the living room for awhile. The contractions were still coming every 10 minutes.

I ate a bowl of cereal...The contractions were still coming every 10 minutes...

I took a shower...The contractions were still coming every 10 minutes...

"Hey, DearHubby, I think this is it..."

I laid down for awhile so that I could be rested up for the big event...I didn't feel the contractions at a regular interval anymore...DearDaughter was up and I asked DearHubby to get her and feed her breakfast...I stayed in bed for about another hour. The time between the contractions grew further apart...NOOOOOO...

I got up and told DearHubby that maybe he should go to work because I didn't want a vacation day wasted...He said we'd wait a little longer...

I went to the rest room and then back to the bedroom to lay down again for another hour or so...The contractions were almost gone, maybe I felt 3 in that hour?

I got up and told DearHubby to get dressed and go to work...It was false labor...
