If you havnt read my other posts I had terrible cramping pain all day yesterday, went to the hospital in  the evening, had contractions at the hospital that were 5 min apart but they sent me home because I was only 1 1/2 CM.

They were sure I would be back. The nurse told me to "warn my daycare parents that I would probably be having the baby" So I did! Well its the next morning. No more 3-5 min apart contractions. Just back to mild cramping. So all my daycare parents will have to be called  and told no baby yet. How embarrassing!


Well I called all of them and they are just being so sweet about it. I have awesome parents!

Where you're this close and it could be any minute, maybe you should stop taking kids into your house until you have the baby anyway. they all must have back up plans in place.

Hey don't beat yourself up....you can't control your body and you were doing what any responsible provider would have done by keeping your parents informed. Any woman who has been pregnant will understand that babies don't come on a schedule they come when they are good and ready no matter what we have planned. Wishing you a healthy easy complication free delivery and a healthy baby!

 They will understand, I mean, if you are a day care provider, they have been through it at least once.

Oh hun don't beat yourself up,I went to the Hospital too when I was pregnant with my DD  and I was sent Home because they were just Braxton Hicks,I kinda felt silly to...

Your baby will come when he/she is ready

Try walking

when I was at the end of my pregnancy with my son I was going stir crazy lol I walked,I drank a frappacino,I went into labor that day

Good Luck.
