31 weeks tomorrow

I can't believe I'm writing that. My Mom threw a baby shower for us yesterday and I was overwhelmed with the generocity and genuine happiness that everyone showed for us. It was really so exciting.

But never a dull moment right??? Last week I made 2 trips to the hospital with what were termed "premature contractions". Meaning, I was contracting very lightly, but consistently every 4-5 minutes. I had many tests done:
- no UTI
- Fetal fibronectin test came back negative (yay!)
- no other bacterial infections

So, long story short, no one knows why I'm still having these contractions, but as of last Friday, they were not changing my cervix. So, I'm just working to keep this baby in for as long as possible, and she's not showing any real signs of coming early. (gulp)...

Has anyone out there ever had a similar experience?
