i was having a very "strange pain" in my upper left tummy. it hurt alot. it kept causing major back pain and then full contractions. i phoned maternity and they told me to come in since my dr. was on shift.
i got strapped into fetal monitoring strips and had a great 20 minute report. the baby was very active (heartrate up to 182 bpm at one point!!! they joked about me having chocolate for dinner) and healthy. i only had one serious contraction while on the strip.
my dr. came in to do an internal. he said that things have changed since friday and that my cervix was shortening then, tonight it was very short (less than a cm to go) but still closed. he said for a third baby, that amount of cervix could thin out very fast (24 hours) or not. ha ha. so unpredictable. so things are still getting set up to have a baby faster than in my previous pregnancies, but still the usual start and stop type of labour. fun!
