What a Concept

Prepare for some stupidity coming your way . . . .

Last night I settled into the couch to watch TV. I started getting contractions. They were coming at 7 minute intervals. I haven't had them that close before and they were painful. I called hubby and told him about it and watched it for an hour. As usual, they went away.

Something dawned on me last night. I always feel like they are going to go away if I just wait it out. It's been true so far. BUT . . . one day they will not go away. They will get closer together and then babies will come out.

I know you're thinking "duh genius." When I really, really and truly think of that, it's kind of freaky. And exciting.

Yes, what you're thinking is right. I am over 31 weeks pregnant and I just realized this is going to lead to the birth of other human beings. What a concept!


  1. Don't feel stupid, my hubby and I had that realization around week 31 too! I was at L&D for the sixth or seventh time with preterm labor, and we mistakenly though the on call dr said "Well, I think you're in labor" then she quickly turned to answer her phone. Hubby and I looked at each other in PANIC! We had so many false alarms and inpatient stays without actually having babies that we got lulled into thinking that they'd never come! Fortunately she had said, "Well I DON'T think you're labor!" We hadn't even packed a hospital back at that point! Needless to say, we packed one as soon as we got home!

    I hope that you have at least 3 more weeks to cook those little babes! Rest up, drink lots, and good luck!

  2. I was lucky. I never had any early ctx. No trips to L&D. (My twins came at 36 weeks.)

    I hope you have several more couch weeks ahead of you, too! You are doing great, you know!

    But, soon you will get so uncomfortable that you won't care how, when or even what... you will just want those babies out! That must be Mother Nature's way of taking care of that "ack, we're having 2 babies" panic.

    And... mine are 4 yrs old... and Lew & I still sometimes look at each and gasp, "Oh my! There are 2 of them!"

  3. Ironing naked *snort* that just cracks me up! Thats right, girl, yo babies are on the way!!
