    Yesterday I had a huge fight with my boss (not the first one) after, I felt alot of crampy in my lower abdomen. After an hour and a half I realized it was more like contractions, it wasn't constant but fairly consistent and i had lower back ache. So I called my OB and they said over 20weeks to go straight to the hospital. I called Dh to meet me there. They hooked me up and checked the FHR. It was good, around 148. She said the monitor didn't pick up that they were contractions, is that possible that they were weak enough for the monitor to miss or was it something else that feels like contractions? I know it wasn't just my liagments stretching, I've had that before. After I was there 1.5hours and I was nice and calm, they had stopped completely. So after another 45mins she sent me home. She had called my ob and he said for me to take a week off with mild bedrest, my DD is at the sitters, I can't do any shopping or anything. I timed them while i was there and i had a couple that were 7 mins apart and lasted 25secs, i couldn't time at work, no sec hand anywhere. She had me thinking I was crazy since the monitor didn't pick up on them. What do you think?

    Hope Brandi has some clue for you, that you can get some rest and that you don't have anymore big fights with your boss... that can't be pleasant!
