Life is Still Funny

So still no baby.  I know, surprising right?

We stayed up most of Friday night counting contractions, watching them getting closer together.  FInally about 3 am I fell asleep.  An hour later my wife woke me up saying time to go to the hospital.

We get to the hospital to find out she's not dialated enough, and her contractions seem to be 'easing up' a bit.  They have us walk around.  Still not enough, so we go home.  We are exhausted and fall asleep around 7 am.

By the time I'm up around noon on Sat the contractions are back down to just a few an hour.  Pretty much over the rest of the weekend they stay at about 2-3 per hour.

So basically we never made it to active labor.

Now add in that Saturday I come down with some horrible stomach bug.  I don't know if it was a flu like thing (my son had been really sick the first half of the week) or food poisoning (my suspiscion) but it had  me doubled over and immobile for about 36 hours this weekend.

So no 40k, no baby yet, and illness.  Now I'm back to work until the labor thing kicks in again.

Ah life, you have such a sense of humor.
