Sciatica is evil.
And so are Braxton Hicks that hurt.
But wait, those aren’t Braxton Hicks then are they???????
Happy 4th of July!!!!
Had the scare of the century last night. I knew, JUST KNEW I was in preterm labor. My back was hurting, my stomach was cramping(coming and going like labor) and I couldn’t sleep. For one moment, everything about labor and delivery that I KNOW for a fact went out of my head, and I was just a scared Mommy thinking:
Not again. Please Lord, not again.
But then, common sense took over:
It was 99 degrees here in Alabama(I’m visiting my Momma) and I had had, count ‘em,
1 glass of water.
All day long.
(Yes, slap me please. Just. Slap.Me.)
I got up and drank 32 oz of water in one sitting. Needless to say, the cramping went away, and I spent the rest of the night peeing every 15 minutes.
So, the moral of the story:
Rose’s Daughter will lug around a large gallon of water today and will drink on it all day long.
Sheesh. I’m supposed to know better!
