19 weeks 1 day and other stories…….

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.)

So!

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!

  1. So glad you weren’t in labor! 🙂 We’re all slow learners at times.

    Happy 4th!

  2. Don’t you hate it when you cease to be a medical professional and become one of the un-educated masses? I do this to myself all the time, and I always feel like such a moron. You know that’s not what it is, but you can’t keep yourself from going there, and then you have to talk yourself off the ledge. I’m glad to know it’s not just me! Don’t worry, hon. Eventually, we’ll both be up in stirrups and then we’ll know what to do. It’s the aftermath I’m really afraid of!

  3. GIrl you better drink!!
    🙂
    I’m so glad that all is well!

  4. Hi Rose’s Daughter,
    I am such an idiot! I just found your blog when I was reading Murgdan’s post about commenting. When you leave a comment on my blog, your blog address doesn’t show up, so I just figured you didn’t have a blog. I have some catching up to do!

    I’m glad that the water stopped the cramping! I’ll have to remember that. I have a hard time drinking enough water sometimes.
