So, Laura was having some "symptoms" and what she called "menstrual-like cramps" this morning. She called her OB's office and they said it COULD be early stage labor or it might not be, but go to the hospital for an NST and to be checked out. She went to the hospital and got hooked up to the monitors. She was (and is) having contractions but was still not dilated yet at all. They sent her home and said to come back when the contractions are stronger and closer together. She just now texted me and said the contractions are now 10 minutes apart but not any stronger.
