Still Pregnant

Filed Under: Life

As I’m typing this, I’m having a contraction.  BUT, it’s not one of those, “OH MY GAWD I’M IN LABOR” contractions.  It’s just something to remind me that I have absolutely no fucking control over this pregnancy whatsoever.

Last night I woke up thinking, “Damn, that hurt!” and I promptly went back to sleep.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…and probably a lot.  I never had contractions with Cara before I was induced.  I never wondered if I was going to make it to my “due date”.  Hell, once I passed my due date without a single twinge, I just figured I’d stay pregnant permanently.

Obviously that didn’t happen.

This time around we have things left to do and the main thing is going to Millington with Tucker for Drill on the 5th.  It is to be a fun filled weekend of cable watching and possibly pool swimming.  Sophie already has her room booked at the vet and everything.

I have an appointment at my OB today and I’m being tested for strep. today.  Can’t wait for that one!

I’ll be curious to see if he checks me for dilation.

Cross your fingers that I’m NOT dilated and that I don’t start to dilate until the 8th.


  1. Those braxton-hicks during the second time around will trick ya! I’ve been told hospitals see more false labors from subsequent pregnancies than first timers because of braxton hicks.

  2. Pregnancy is c-r-a-z-y. My feet always hurt when I was pregnant. They were like cave people feet. Huge.

    I love that you call your commenters borderline personalities! I call mine backseat drivers!

  5. Oh the dilation checks. “Hey, can you come in for your weekly appt. so I can stick my hand in you? Kthx!”

    Oh the end of pregnancy is not the fun part, that’s for damn sure. Good wishes going your way from me!

  6. Well, it’s now the 28th and there’s no update which leads me to believe there may be a baby! 😛
