To end a lovely weekend at the hospital really makes it sour. It all started with severe cramping that lasted for many hours–I’m talking PAIN. Contractions. Barely able to move around. Off to the hospital we went with kids in tow. After five hours of testings, ultrasound, questioning and doctor visit, an over-the-counter medicine was given to me and we were good to go. I’m starting to agree that the older you get the harder the pregnancy can be.
