8 minute apart contractions + 1 centimeter dilation = go the hell home
Despite Julie's best efforts to get unpregnant today, her mean old doctor sent her home from the hospital. So what you see in the picture below is not a woman getting ready to have a baby, but a woman sent to labor at home with a prescription of getting lots of rest and drinking lots of water. Sound advice if you have a cold, but not that great for this weary trooper who is being awoken by contractions at all hours of the night and who already spends half her day peeing.
It was an interesting trip back to the parking garage as every nurse, doctor and custodian had something to say along the lines of "you're headed the wrong way" or "see you soon!"
