Contractions Are Like Running a Marathon Everyday

Marathon Girl, my wonderful wife who has done such physically punishing things such as running a marathon on a broken leg, is beat. Friday night we went in to the hospital again thinking our little girl was on her way. Contractions were intense and 2-3 minutes apart. We were sent home three hours later and told that she wasn’t in active labor. The contractions finally stopped around midnight but resumed on Saturday afternoon for five hours, resumed for several more hours this afternoon then stopped around bedtime. The on and off again contractions are draining her both emotionally and physically. The only time I’ve seen Marathon Girl this beat is after running a marathon. We need this baby to come soon. We have a doctor’s appointment Monday afternoon. Hopefully we’ll have some more good news (like an induction date) or maybe these contractions will finally into active labor. I hope to have good news soon.
