Last night seemed very promising. Contractions came every 7-10 minutes and were growing increasingly uncomfortable. Then downright painful! We called Shelley and she came over and then they stopped, dead as we were leaving for the hospital. So irritating. I had a few on and off over night, but nothing significant. I went on a walk this morning, and they seem to be gearing up again, but I am feeling pretty awful. I hope this doesn't drag on for weeks and weeks!
