Dry Run

Well I should have figured it would happen, Zach left for Phoenix at 7 Saturday morning, it was snowing like crazy in Williams, and...(I'm a slacker) I had not packed any bags... So of course... I start having contractions around 10 am. Not a big deal, just kinda hard to breathe. Well one of my best friends ever comes to visit me and Brigette while Zach is gone. Ah, I LOVE Ash!! She doesn't believe me when I say I'm having contractions. So we rent a movie, get lunch, and then she tells me, "I think you should get packed Kourtney" Dang my little sister, so smart, doesn't miss anything, knows everything!!!! So I call Dr. Tindall instead, what an awesome dr. I have his work number, cell number and home number. So I call him and tell him whats going on, he asks me a couple of questions and upon hanging up I hear him ask "Does anyone know where Williams, AZ is??" I would have told him.
So Ash helps me pack stuff for myself, Brigette, Zach and Tera...Then we hit the road.
It takes us over TWO HOURS to get to Joseph City. I get in with my parents leaving Brigette crying because she wants her Papa and Grammy! They get me to Show Low to the hospital. My contractions were about 3 min apart by this time, and at least 1 min long.
Zach showed up about 15 minutes after we got there (yes he drives fast). They hook me up, ask me questions, and check me. At my last dr appointment I was about a 3, 75% effaced, and she was half way down. Nothing more...
So we wait, I'm starving, I can't eat anything and Darth Vader (my nurse) spilled all my juice. Darn I'm feeling sorry for myself. Well after two hours my contractions slow down and I don't dilate any more. So they send me home... Zach teases me that I am a faker, and I cry (I know, what a baby) Well Dr. Tindall wont let me go home, so if anyone is bored I am at my parents house, hanging out and sewing til this baby decides to come... wow I feel stupid.

WALK EVERYWHERE YOU CAN THINK OF!! Have lots of sex...and be sure to drink plenty of fluids. Dehydrations causes you to contract and if your not in true labor they'll be sure to figure that out by stinkin a dang IV in you and hydrate you. So...do all of those things and once the contractions get to how they were, or worse...your good to go. :) You not a faker! I'd love to see Zach in your posittion right now. Us women, WE'RE TOUGH! :) haha Good luck!!
