Screw Contractions!


For the love of God and all that is holy, GET OUT OF ME! That really is the only thing that keeps running through my brain tonight. I have been having contractions for 2 weeks now and this little beast will not leave me! Granted, they are inconsistent contractions. You would think by the 3rd time around these Braxton Hicks buggers wouldn't fool me....but yet again. I find myself every night timing them and getting my hopes up but...but...but...NO. My parents are starting to fear me because I am getting mean. Admittedly by evening I am usually pretty grouchy, looking around for things to throw at my dog for no good reason. I think Dan is thanking his lucky stars that he isn't here for these last few weeks. Chances are I would just kick him. I was pretty mean to him when I was pregnant with Savannah come to think of it. I was almost 2 weeks overdue. I tried EVERYTHING to go into labor. Those last few days when he would come home from work I'd just growl at him, "Pants off Cain...I'm having this baby today!" Unfortunately that isn't an option this time seeing as my husband is deployed - unless any of you know of a really brave and willing stand in. Ew. That even grossed me out. GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT.

First of all, I love the name Savannah. I'd wanted to name our baby that, but alas, she turned out to be a he. Isn't that how it goes?

Second, I had that same shirt when I was pregnant. Maternity clothes always look better on someone else, though.

And finally, I wish you the best on your upcoming arrival. Wow, brings back so many memories!

ROTFL. Those last few weeks are so horrid. You feel like your stomach can't stretch any further and your bladder can't get much smaller.

I also found your chili recipe on your other blog. I wanted to make chili tonight and all those ingredients are in my pantry.

Happy labor.

I think we all walk around in the same maternity clothes like clones. There needs to be more variety!
Carolyn - I hope you liked the chili. It's a family fav.

LMAO,poor you.
I FEEEEL your pain,I remember feeling like that in my final days.
It was HEAVEN when my doctor asked me carefully"How would you feel about being enduced??"
I think I scared her when I leaped across the table to hug her and screamed with delight,hehehe

I have been BEGGING my midwife to induce me this coming weekend - partly because my husband will be home and partly because I would chew off my right arm to get this baby out. But no.

I've heard that drinking a Guiness does the trick! I don't know if I'd be brave enough to try it. I remember you with Savannah. :)

Better you than me! (You know you can count on sympathy from me every time)
You should've ordered something from the last Hanky Panky party I had...the "BULLET" is the best! It may not help labour but at least it would put a little smile on your face for a while.

Oh yeah - HI LOIS!!!!!

Gingers Mom said...

I am laughing so hard I think I may pee - not that it takes much these days. I'm up for any ideas at this point.

Miss Kelly said...

No kidding - you probably pee every time you wink. Similar to those people that get botox and fart every time they try to smile!
