 baby sister's bday.  I got a text about an hour ago that my sister was going to the hospital to be checked because she is having lower back pain and some contractions.  She's made it further along in this pregnancy than she did last time but she's still sooo scared to deliver before the due date next month.  This week marks 3yrs ago that she delivered her first baby prematurely.
Please keep her in your thoughts.
Thanks, guys

She's not too early is she? I'll keep her in my thoughts for sure. I'll pray for a healthy, wonderful, beautiful, sweet little babe. :) Happy birthday to your baby sister too. Today is Amanda's little girls birthday too so Happy birthdays all around. I'll drink to that.

 Thanks, Bobbie.  I believe she just hit 35 weeks.  I think just the experience last time has her all stressed and worried.  I can understand that since I lost my 1st and he was 11days late.  Seems like there are no guarantees and that's what has her so scared. :(

Oh really?  Happy Bday to her little girl too!  I think it's also Jaehawk's birthday, lol. 
Happy Birthdays all around for sure!
I can't drink to that, lol!!! I might have a 5hr drive coming HAHA

Prayers that she and the baby are protected and the baby can come into this world strong and healthy.

 Thank you, Jennifer ;)
So far they have put in an IV and checked her blood and urine.  The contractions have slowed so I'm hoping they'll just keep her till morning.  She's been there almost 5hrs.

 OK they sent her home but only after one hour of no contractions.  I'm worried...she's worried.  If she wasn't so close to my heart then I would know what to feel and say to her.
Thanks for the good thoughts and prayers...I'll keep you updated in this post.

 Thanks ;)
Yes I know what you mean.  She had that with the first baby but he was just so early.  This pregnancy they have been giving her some shot to prevent premature labor.

I haven't heard anything this morning so I'm guessing she's just at home taking it easy ;)
