I started having menstural-like cramps around 4 or 5pm. They started to get worse, and I thought that it might be an ovarian cyst that was bursting. (That hurts pretty bad too). The pain continued to get worse and worse. It was hurting WAY worse than any childbirth contractions I had ever experienced.
My husband called a friend and arranged to drop the kids off so he could take me to the hospital. We first went to Hospital #1 since it was the closest. We went in and there were about 50-75 people in the waiting room. Hubby was not waiting, so put me back in the car and drove down to Hospital #2.

My husband is taking a few days off work to take care of me and the kids. I
