    I figured I would do another update. I am still pregnant. These have been the hardest most exhausting days of my life. I have had contractions everyday since Tuesday. It turns out that my cervix doesnt like to dialate and that baby girl hates it when they check. So I have contractions when she sits low then they check my cervix and she flys away and they magically stop. It sounds horrible but on one hand I'm extremely happy that they are staying put but another I am just mentally and physically exhausted and want them to come if they are coming. One second you think you are having babies that day and the next second you aren't. It is also hard on DH because he works an hour away and they have been thinking babies might be coming so he hasn't worked. The said I might just be one of the women who contract all the time but don't dialate. So it looks like this is the new normal until I start dialating, my water breaks or the babies go in distress. On a good note tomorrow is 28 weeks which is a huge day for babies.
