another false alarm!?!?

So we spent about 9hrs at the hospital waiting to see if Ang's contractions would kick into another gear, but so far no luck. The doctor sent us home and said that it'd probably be a while. So for now, Angie's got sometimes (but not always) painful contractions every five to eight minutes or so. They're more painful than this morning, but not everyone is "productive" enough to dilate her cervix.

A couple of times they had Angie on a fetal monitor that would gauge her contractions from a resting reading of anywhere from about 5 to about 20, we'd see the numbers spike during her contractions. First up to about 30. No pain. Then 40. Starting to hurt. Getting up to 60 or 70 would be moderately painful, but then a couple of times she'd get up to 80, 90, even 100. The nurse said that it'd take contractions of 70-80 to really dilate and that Ang should expect to really be sweating and feeling it when the contractions got in that range frequent enough to go back to the hospital.

In other words, we're still on hold, back at home trying our best to get some rest.

Turns out he really could be born on Cliff's birthday, tomorrow.
