Sounds like a plan!
Just keep a phone nearby in case something happens quickly, also have some clean dry towels and a blanket together somewhere so you can direct hubby or a child to get them if needed.
Midwife advised me to just make sure if bub does arrive, keep the baby warm (with the towels) and yourself (blanket) and to leave the cord until ambulance arrives, and if they're not breathing clearly to try and clear the airways.
If someone else is there they should be on the phone to the ambulance the whole time and if you are alone, call as soon as you are able to. Even if you can't talk you should call (preferably from a home phone so they get the address automatically) and leave the line open so they can hear that you need help.
Good luck if you do go in. Hopefully you can get an answer either way.

Spoke to MW yesterday. she said the test is only if I am threatening premlabour, as it is very exspensive. She said no need to come in since everything subsided but no playing around with those contractions. She says if they are regular or have a show I have to come in immediately...now I ask you with tears in my big blue eyes....how often do I have to make that freaking trip?!
