Hi all - no baby yet! We aren't sure if the eggplant had anything to do with it, but I have been having contractions since Thursday early morning. They got to an all time closeness of 5 minutes apart on Friday. So we did make the short jaunt (only 7 miles, thank goodness!) to the hospital. Unfortunately after a few hours there, we were sent home to relax. While I continue to have contractions, they aren't productive at this time. My Dr said they would keep me if I wanted, but he recommended that I relax at home.
The good news about going is that we got a sense of what our hospital is like. It is just a small place with only 4 floors. But the staff is great and very attentive. I also got to see the head of my OB practice, whom I normally don't see. He handles the more complex OB cases and not the run-of-the-mill pregnancies usually. He was very reassuring throughout the short visit.
When it is actually time to go, we will have wireless internet access at the hospital. Jeff will update everyone as quickly as he can. We are just biding our time now. And Jeff is hoping he won't be watching the Patriots' Super Bowl on the little 9" screen in the delivery room. Althought that might be a good distraction :).
