On Friday morning I decided I really wanted to get my stroller and car seat. So I called James and he said it was fine to go ahead and get it. I had to go to the Woodland mall for the one I wanted. So I loaded the girls in the van with snacks and movies and we were off.
I really wanted this Travel System and had the hardest time finding it. Finally I found out that the Sears in the Woodland mall had it.
We got the stroller/carseat and headed for home.
As we were driving home I started feeling some consistent contractions. I was timing them and they were between 4 and 5 minutes apart. They were not painful though.
When we got home I told the girls we could go swimming. I continued having contractions while they were swimming. I decided to get my phone and time them a little bit more. They were about 3 minutes apart. I was still not feeling any pain, just the tightening.
I told my mom and grandma that I was having contractions and they wondered what I was doing at the pool. I knew it wasn't enough to put me into labor right away so I wanted to let the girls have some fun.
Around 3:45 I decided we should go home and call the doctor.
I called and they said I should head to the hospital. I called James and he got home around 4:30.
I was hoping that I would get to stay and not be sent home.
When I had Annabelle I had bought the carseat and stroller that same day too. James even told me that he was thinking the baby would come since I went and got it.
We arrived at the hopsital around 5:00pm.
