I have been having tons of Braxton Hicks during the last few weeks of my pregnancy, but what happened to me today was a very different feeling. It came from deep within, and truly took my breath away.
I realized that if this was indeed labor, then I sure wasn't prepared! I hadn't even packed my hospital bag, nonetheless put away all of the clothes I had washed that week.
I frantically packed a bag with the essentials, a take home outfit for myself and our tiny baby, toothpaste, deodorant, nipple cream, breast pads, and a nursing bra.
After calling Tall Dad, our doula, and our on-call babysitting friend, I was ready to head to the hospital!
Then, my contractions stopped all together. It was a false alarm.
At least I now have a packed hospital bag!
Hopefully I'll have some exciting news for you soon. But until then, I'll keep attempting to put those clothes away ;)
Talk soon friends,
