35W1D = False Labor #1

  • 2:00 a.m. - lower back pain wakes me
  • 2:30 - contractions start
  • 2:34 - next contraction
  • 2:37 - next contraction

    They continue at 3-4 minute intervals for 30-40 seconds each.

  • 3:30 - call DR (guideline is 5 minutes apart for 60 seconds). He says they are not intense enough yet. When they get to 60 seconds and I cannot breathe through them, come into hospital.
  • 3:30 - 7:30 contractions 3 minutes apart, 60 seconds. Same intensity as before.
  • 10:20 - arrive LATE for regularly scheduled DR appt. Find out have gained NO weight in last month! Yahoo! Also - 50% effaced, 0 cm dialted. Baby dropped all the way down by this time and DR can feel him.

    Diagnosis: false labor, go home, do not pass go.
