Today was an overall good day. I am currently in “waiting mode” as to whether or not what I’ve been feeling for the past 6 1/2 hours is in fact true labor. I’ve had pains since about 2 this afternoon that have not subsided, but not gotten worse either. I finally called the Dr. about an hour ago and she said to drink a quart of water, take two Tylenol, and take a bath. If it is false labor, the contractions will go away. If not, they will continue and possibly intensify. Great, seeing as Mike has to leave in 30 minutes for work- until about noon tomorrow. Normally he gets off at 8:00, but has court cases to deal with tomorrow morning. Thank goodness he works in the same city as the Dr.’s office and can meet me there quickly. I’ll keep everyone posted.
I took B to see The Robinson’s movie today. Maybe having to sit through that movie is what psychologically made me feel I was in labor…..it was horrible. I was thinking the whole time, “Please let my water break” so I’d have an excuse to exit the movie without hurting my little guy’s feelings. Nope, we toughed it out. I am a little disappointed in Disney with that one. I could barely understand the story line (and it was animated) much less a 5 year old. I expect more from Disney…..especially since my family has already spent many dollars on that company. Oh well, there is another movie coming out this summer. Hopefully it will be better.
I finally got outside yesterday and cleaned off the patio (all the dried up pollen) and wiped down the rocking chairs. Braeden and I sat out there for a little while. It was so nice out. He doesn’t sit still long…..he just HAS to be a Ninja and practice his “moves” all the time. Here is a picture.
