false alarm

so, yeah. i don't know if i should be telling this, because it is pretty embarrassing...i just feel the need to update everyone on the goings on of our life. and this is what has been happening.
so, last night, i had contractions off and on throughout the night. mind you, i haven't had any braxton hicks until today. so, ben and i got ready, went to church, and timed contractions all through church. they went from 8:30 - 5:30 (which is when we went to the hospital) going from 30 minutes apart to 3 minutes apart. well, i probably had 2 contractions when we walked into the doors to the hospital and that was IT!!! no more! zilch! nada! it was SO annoying! i felt like an idiot. they hooked us (me and dillon) up to the monitors and so it was pretty fun hearing dillon's heartbeat for an extended period of time. anyway, so, if anyone tells you that i went to the hospital, they're right, but then you can tell them it was nothing.

anyway, on other notes, everything is going very well. we haven't taken any recent pictures of me to post because, let's just face it, i'm pretty large AND our camera is packed in the hospital bags. i do only have one more week of work, though, which i'm VERY excited about :). we also are finishing up getting ready for dillon to get here. that's pretty much what our days consist and getting ready for dillon. it's good times! also, ben is probably going to start some free lance work in the near future. if you hear of anyone who needs some graphic design work, let him know. we would greatly appreciate the business...however, there's no compensation for a referral...yet ;). we also had the privelege of having TWO thanksgiving dinners this year (not including work dinners). our first one was at the myatt's house. the tankersleys were in town all last week. we had SUCH a great time with them! so, we had both sides of the family in on last saturday (before thanksgiving). then, we went to the denker's house on thanksgiving day! that is truly our home away from home! we had such a great time with our "family" there, and we all decided that it was one of the best thanksgivings ever. we loved it.
i guess that's about it! we love you all! thanks for all your prayers! and we will definitely keep you posted!!

Hang in there girl.It won't be that much longer.Don't feel bad at all either about the false alarm.I would have been telling you to go to the hospital too if you'd called me with contractions for that long and that close together.Rest up as much as you can and take care of yourself :)

janie, we had a false alarm with zoe too. don't be embarrassed--the only thing bad about it is those "un-helpful" (i could use a meaner word here) who tell you "you'll know." every one of my pregnancies was different. i ALWAYS thought i would get sent home when i went in--even with tate, who came 20 minutes after we got there. hang in there. i love you so much.
