An irreverent look at motherhood and family life in a new state of normal.

After several days of going into light contractions every night and wondering and wondering, I'm getting tired of the wondering. I have been getting about 3-4 hours of sleep a night as I lay in my bed thinking my water will break at any moment. Then I go out and watch crappy TV for a while and cry about the fact that everything hurts and is it for a reason? I wish I could get checked every now and then to know how I'm progressing but I don't have an OBGYN at the house here and I just have to deal.

Yesterday my mother got here and she has already relieved the stress off me AGAIN. It's so nice to have her here and just being around. Andy doesn't feel like he has to do EVERYTHING! He is such a good husband. He deserves to have a break and a BIG PARTY thrown for him. Anyway, today my mom and I went shopping for groceries and as we walked down the cereal aisle, we heard water dripping. I looked down and there was a puddle under me. I freak out. "Mom, is that ME?!" She looks and looks, "No, there is nothing coming from you. But that is weird." I totally thought my water broke right there in the store but it didn't. I was trailing hand soap that had broken and was leaking out of my cart. Talk about a scare. I looked at my mom and said, "That would have been classic."

Hopefully, I won't continue to be the Murphy's Law of pregnancy but I will keep the FB world updated and if anything fantastic happens, I will be blogging... HA! Even if it's from a hospital bed!
