March 24, Malachi went to ER for ear infection. My thought, "Good thing I am not having this baby so I can take care of my lilttle man." March 29, was a sunday, we went to church, I did children's church. When we got home, I and the kids took a nap, Matthew worked in playhouse. When we woke up from nap the kids wanted to go for a walk. We walked around, Malachi (2) walks for a few feet than always wants to be carried. I carried him, Niah (4) walked, and came home. We then decided to go to my mom's house to finish baby girls, "bring home from hospital outfit." We finished the outfit and it was getting close to bedtime, the kids and I went home. I started getting the kids ready for bed and felt a cramp. It was around 7ish and I felt a few more while I was getting the kids ready for bed and I began to wonder, "are these contractions or just braxton hicks?" Around 8 I got in the bathtub, they continued and as I was in the bathtub I decided to time them. I was timing them about 4 minutes apart. I was not really worried but began to think if I am in labor maybe I should call Matthew.
I called Matthew, "Hey honey, will you come up to the house for a second?' He was in the playhouse. I was still in the bathtub very calmly said, "Honey, I am not sure but I think I may be in labor? But I am not sure?" He answers with, "How close are your contractions? Maybe you should call the hospital?" He went to the playhouse to clean up and I called the hospital but was in no hurry to get to the hospital. I got out of the bath started packing a bag, cleaned the house a little, Matthew waited anxiously for me to say lets go! I didn't so he finally said let's go to the hospital. We took the kids to my mom's house, didn't tell anyone that we were going because I didn't want to be in false labor. Now contractions were 3 mins apart.
