Soooo i went to work at 11. they put me in the kitchen today so i got a bit overheated lol. i tried to keep drinking water but we just got soo busy.  i finally went on break at 345 and started having contractions. which i thought were just braxton  hicks, but they kept coming, and coming, and coming. so i asked to have a little bit longer to hydrate up before i went back to work. i ended up drinking like a gallon of water and having contractions that were 4 mintues apart. (pain about a 6  on the 1-10 scale) so at like 6 o'clock my manager said that she doesnt think its going to get any better  and that i should just go. so i called DH and he came and picked me up. he grabbed my delivery bag and everything and we headed over to the hospital (i begged him not to take me). of course he text and called a million family and friends just to warn them that tonight would be the night. at triage they hook me up to monitors to check baby and contractions. they were about 5 mintues apart, baby sounded great. she checked my cervix which was still only 1cm but babies head was right there. so they sent me on an hour walk around the hospital, a friend of mine showed up for some support. after all that walking we went back to triage and she hooked me up, checked my cervix. no change! but my contractions were 3 minutes apart! i was like you've got to be kidding me, im stomping around for an hour and in all this pain and theres nothing to show for it. darn it. by the time i got home the contractions had pretty much stopped. so that was the end of my wonderful night. i went to bed around 10 and im up now at 5. after waking several times, i just want my baby girl! :( well i have 3 days off of work to walk.

Oh wow! I hope that she comes in due time and you don't have to go back to work at all! I am saying it will happen on Wed! I can't wait to see pics! PS sometimes an hour isn't long enough to show any real progress during your first labor! Get your walk on girl!
