I've reached the point in my pregnancy (38 weeks) where I've started getting a little nervous about this whole labor and delivery thing. Just a little anxious. I know I've done it 3 times before, but maybe that's just it....I'm remembering how fast these babies come and how bad they hurt getting here. (I'm crossing my fingers for a fast working epidural this go-around.) I keep telling myself...I've done it before and I can do it again! Yeah!! Yeah??!
I was at my weekly checkup yesterday, and while waiting for my doctor to come in the room, I heard a lady start screaming across the hall. The screaming turned into crying and the crying turned into wailing. I then heard the doctor try to "reassure" her by telling her she was in early labor and that they were going to wheel her over to the hospital.
Y'all!! That did not one thing for my nerves.
It was reassuring, however, when I was told later that this baby sounded great and measured right on track. Labor and delivery is brutal but the baby is oh-so-sweet.
Hope y'all are having a wonderful week.
