The fun never ends!

I'm waiting on a call back from the doctor's office. They said I should call if there were four Braxton Hicks in an hour.

So far today:
12:06 pm
12:32 pm
12:43 pm
12:56 pm

None have lasted more than 30 seconds and the whole time the lowercase was wiggling like crazy immediately before and after each one.

I am (of course) still in bed and working on my 2nd large bottle of water. Which I managed to choke on slightly while sitting up so I could go in to the bathroom. I coughed and coughed and pulled a damn muscle in my lower stomach!

So now? A little concerned about the contractions and whether or not I could be heading for pre-term labor (I've been panicking all weekend about my mucus plug because the usually slimy mucus was more gooey) and in serious pain every time I move because of the pulled muscle.

Anyone want to trade bodies for a little while? Like say the next month? Once we get into November I'll be alright because I'll know the lowercase's chances will be really quite good. I just can't deal right now.

And yes, I did look up success and health rates for 26 weeks (I'll reach that Thursday) this morning. If I get to that point, 20% of babies born then don't make it while 16% have mild-severe disabilities and 64% not only live but grow up healthy. I'm still scared. More are healthy than aren't, but I'm just so damn scared all the time.


*********************************************************
UPDATE: 1:35 pm phone call returned from the doctor's office. Because I have had no further contractions and none of them lasted more than 30 seconds, they think there is likely nothing happening cervix-wise. If they come back again and don't go away with hydration or if they change in intensity or there is any leakage of fluids/blood, I have to call again. I'm hoping it doesn't come to that.
