False Alarm!

Amazing how a false-positive test score can make your head spin.

With everything seemingly ready to go, and my ducks in a row, she finally texts to say that they’re going to release her in just a few minutes.

In hospital lexicon, to be released one first has to be admitted. How could that have been?

Well, she had gone for one of her now twice weekly check-ups, and ended up getting admitted into labor and delivery.

Turns out, the nurse received a positive test for the release of amniotic fluid. The moment, apparently, had arrived.

She was immediately eschewed toward L&D (as she likes to call it) and met a doctor and a midwife and all systems were go.

But then they did some more tests, a sonogram, an ultrasound, etc., and everything was status normal. Baby’s fine. Getting ready to go, but fine.

And the test? Simply a clinical error.

There weren’t any false-positive or clinical errors with either of my two older boys. They were simply ready when they were ready.

This one might have other ideas.

    Hahaha… I had no idea you were in such a frenzy! I’m pretty sure I was in a panic, but I tried not to worry you. I’m sorry. 😦
