1:50 am: Off to the hospital.
4:05 am: Back home again.
I am definitely in Early Labor, but am not dilated, so I was sent home - WHICH WAS FINE BY ME. I would MUCH rather do this at HOME than in the hospital. I see now why the whole "home birth" thing is so popular. By 3:30 am, I was begging to be sent home because I knew the little Freeloader wasn't coming anytime soon (although, I suspect he will arrive today or tomorrow). Anyway, I'd much rather lie around in my own bed, thank you very much.
Of course, this means I can't sit on my brand new living room furniture for the time being!
