false alarm

Eriko called me at 2:30 pm to tell me that the her water had broken and I was off and running. Zack drove me home, I put all our hospital things into the car, and off Eriko and I went. Her contractions were still about 20 minutes apart, so the nurse at the hospital didn’t think it was time. After about an hour of waiting, we were told to go home. We stopped off at the midwife where she told me that she thinks Eriko’s water has sprung a leak and so she wanted to make sure the baby was OK. She thinks that delivery will occur today. Right now, Eriko’s contractions are about 6 minutes apart, although I don’t know if that is constant or just occassional. She woke up to call the midwife about 2:30 and I haven’t been able to get back to sleep since. Ah, sleepless in Seattle. ;)
