Interesting times, redux

By 4 p.m. yesterday, Lisa was having regular contractions 15 minutes apart. At 8 p.m., they were 10 minutes apart, and we decided it'd be best to go to the hospital and get checked out. By the time we checked in, contractions were coming 7 minutes apart. As soon as they get Lisa hooked up to a monitor, the contractions slow down to 20 minute intervals.

So we walk around some and do some more checking. Still 20 minute intervals. And the intensity of the contractions is declining. Around midnight they let us go home. All together, Lisa had about 10 hours of regular contractions. We're both somewhat tired, to say the least. The endgame to this pregnancy isn't playing out like the previous two, at all.
