Waiting

Nothing is going on in my life worth reporting, which is why I haven't posted anything. Just some never-ending pre-labor/early-labor. The baby will come soon, but "soon" is a little ambiguous. It's kind of like having a Baby Bomb in my belly with the timer set to "random."

Last night I made the mistake of thinking I was in real labor and went to the hospital. I will never do that again. It was awful. If I could re-do my prenatal care and planning, I would have set up a homebirth. It would be so much more relaxing to labor here, away from monitors and un-comfy beds and not-so-nice nurses and their hourly cervical checks.

So far, the first pregnancy was so much easier than this one.

I love this line.

I went to the hospital WAY too early with the first. With the second, I waited until we were in an "oh crap, gotta go!" situation just to keep the in hospital waiting from happening again.

Am not trying for a third to get it right.
