No, the hospitals here are not so highly advanced that they have lap tops on the maternity floor where women can update their blog after giving birth! I am sitting at HOME with the baby STILL in my belly typing this entry. Although I didn’t sleep well last night, I did finally fall asleep and although having to pee every hour woke me up, pains did not! I was fine about it (getting used to the cramping and false “labor-like” pains) until about 10:00 this morning when I started having INTENSE pains (worse than yesterday) that I swore I was going to be heading to the hospital as soon as Mike got home. Well its noon and I am still home and now pain free. For those of you who don’t already know, I suffer from irritable bowel. If I eat something that doesn’t agree with me then I get really intense pains that last about an hour (and mimic labor pains). Its common for it to be worse while pregnant because of where the baby lays in relation to the digestive system. I’ve had it bad about 3 times this pregnancy and even called the Dr. once (I was only at 30 weeks at that point). I am pretty sure Mike is relieved. I called him at 11:00 to tell him I was in pain. He was on his way home from work with a severe headache. He had been up since 7:30 last night. He was such a sweetie though and just replied, “We will do what we have to do.” He probably hung up with me and said a nice little prayer that the baby would not come today- and there I was praying that he would! HAHA. Truthfully, I would feel really bad if he’d had to take me to the hospital and see his son be born on NO SLEEP and plagued by a headache.
OK, time to shower and sit out front on the rocking chairs. Exciting I know! B and I are going to meet some dear friends Jennifer and Nicholas tonight for some play time at the park and dinner at a favorite restaurant (which is SO GOOD, but upsets my tummy almost every time). At least if I wake up in pain tonight I will KNOW its NOT labor! HAHA
Sorry for the borning blog. I will make up for it with a great picture!
Braeden insists on wearing a hat to “keep the sun of his face” however, he also insists on wearing it backwards! I pick my battles, whatever makes sense to him!
