Wouldn't you know it ...

Remember that line in my last post about feeling good and how tomorrow I would probably regret that? Ha! Well wouldn't you know it. Last night I woke up at 2 in the morning (after about an hour of sleep) sick to my stomach from my prenatal vitamin. (I should know better than to take it on an empty stomach). Add to that my headache and I was not in a good way. 

I spent about two hours in and out of the bath and timing stomach pains wondering if I was going into labor. This was not how I wanted to start labor. Still the pains were regular and about 5 minutes apart. Finally around 4:15 I woke Jon up and told him he better start packing for the hospital. (I hadn't quite gotten around to that yet.)

He jumped up and started gathering things. A few minutes (and one more trip to the bathroom) later the pains subsided and I felt sleepy. My sweet husband was wonderful about me waking him up to my false alarm and just went cheerfully to work. I love this man.

Just a false alarm and I am feeling fine today. But I found it ironic that this came right after I said I was feeling really good. :)
