Not to beat a dead horse...


I had a terrible day today. Way too many contractions causing discomfort.
Alright people. I've been to the doctor. Thanks for all your "help", but there's not a lot to do at this point. Until the contractions get more frequent and stronger, I just need to deal with it. If I do go into labor, they won't stop it, because I am almost 35 weeks.

Here are some of the helpful words people shared with me today:

(after overhearing me laugh about how large I looked while bending over to clean a spill)
Person I barely know, who also has not been pregnant: Hate to break it to you, but it's just going to get worse.
me: eh, not really.

(While relaxing on my lunch break with my feet up)
Person: You do realize you still have over a month to go...
Me: yes, that's not that long.
Person: You don't think so???? hm.

(While relaxing on my lunch break, I also was in the only free chair, that also happened to be in at the table filled with a giant sheet cake)
Person: hahahahhahahhaha, you're sitting by that whole cake!!

Person: You better not have that baby early, or you're never going to get any sleep.
me: Hm, I'm kind of under the impression I'm not going to get too much sleep either way.

Okay, okay, I realize I may have lost my sense of humor. But where is the encouragement in all of this? I had a couple of very, very sweet women help me out today when I started to have a bit of a melt down. So, thank you, ladies, You're very appreciated!

Last night I woke up twice due to some really strong contractions, but they didn't continue. Today I had a few that I couldn't walk or talk through, but they also didn't continue. But it was strange, because once I got to my chair, my nose started bleeding like crazy!! I got super super hot, my nose was bleeding down my face like a faucet (can you imagine the sight?!) and started to sweat. So I went home to relax. But my naughty dog whined for TWO HOURS because she wanted to play outside. Last time she "played" by herself, she ran after a rabbit and I had to drive around to find her. I didn't feel like dealing with that.

So. Here's hoping tomorrow is a better day!!! Cheers!

  1. Oh girl, I'm sorry you had a rotten day. I can't believe you are going to birth that child in just a few weeks. Time (for me, anyway) has flown by! (Although, I didn't know you were pregnant for like the first half of the pregnancy, so maybe that's why.) Anyway, hope today has been a good day!
