SO, you would think that I know what contractions feel like since I do have a kid. But I mean that was like 5 years ago... and my mind isn't the greatest. Just ask me what I did this previous weekend, and you'll know just how my mind works. LOL! So I've been having these pains and I just knew I was contracting. Went to the DR earlier this week, and he told me what pain I should be looking for. I'm going to take his advice like a grain of salt, because one... he is a man! And according to the man, I'm only supposed to be pregnant for 9 months - well... I'm 2 weeks over due that! LOL! I have been contracting, but nothing a little breathing hasn't gotten me thru. Since I went to the DR, I now know that those pains are a little different... but yesterday, I had some serious contractions. Still nothing to make me want to rush to the hospital - YET! I try to count how long they last and for how long I've been having them... but seriously, when you are going through that pain, you aren't thinking about taking notes! One thing I do remember from being pregnant with Stabs, I thought I knew what the contractions felt like, even rushed to the hospital... but that wasn't it. It wasn't until a week later, that I actually FELT that pain, and then I knew knew!! Okay, so back to present times... yesterday I was contracting at work, nothing out the ordinary. But it wasn't until I got to my daughter's school and her teacher looked at me like I was straight tripping for 1. still working, and 2. still driving that I knew it was real. I literally walked into the classroom and she could tell that I was contracting. Crazy! All last night when I was doing my nightly thing, I was feeling them. I put the BD on call, and he came right over. I let my mom and BG know the deal (emergency back-up)... When I was sleep, surprisingly I didn't feel anything. Normally little Wolfie wakes me up around 4 or so, but I was able to sleep the night away. But as soon as I woke up, they started again! Yikes! So this weekend, I'm going to definitely try to use my time to my advantage. Pack a bag for myself, Stabs, and Wolfie. So we will all be ready, and I won't be a wreck thinking about what I need to be doing when I should be resting and taking it easy. I'm hoping Wolfie waits until my scheduled date... but if she wants to come earlier, I would like to be ready. I know I can't stop it when it does start to happen... so I need to finish up what I need to do. This is what I have to do to myself... Hype myself up to do the work, so it can get done. But if you were to call me after hours to see what I got done... Ummmm, more than likely nothing. SMH! I just be so tired! Who knew creating life takes so much of your energy?! Especially when you already have a child. A child that can't do everything herself - no matter how much she thinks she can.
That's all for now. If you don't hear from me for a week or so, it's safe to say baby Wolfie has made her entrance into this world! ;-) Either that, or I've gotten into one of my funks!
Before I do hit the publish button... I just want to say THANK YOU to my special loves! Thank you for understanding the emotions that I'm going through. I know I'm a little difficult to deal with sometime, but you still love me unconditionally. I'm forever grateful to have you all in my life! LOVE LOVE LOVEEEEE YOU!!!
