So I have exactly one week until my baby is due to grace us with his presence. I'd like to think I am staying calm and collected, but it's really hard not to wonder whenever my body does something weird whether or not I am going into labor.
"I woke up with an upset stomach."
*Googles "nausea as a sign of labor"*
"Holy crap, that's a symptom! But I'm not having any contractions or anything else. I guess I'll wait and see."
(It turns out it is in fact, not labor.)
"Wow, I am feeling really crampy and sort of like crap. I wonder if that's back labor."
(It turns out it is in fact, not back labor.)
"The baby hasn't stopped moving or kicking. My goodness, he's having a party in there. I wonder if that's a sign of labor."
(It turns out it is in fact, not a sign of labor at all.)
And don't think the crazy is just me.
My husband called me on his break. I was in the bathroom, where I seem to spend half my day, so I didn't pick up. He then calls our friend/neighbor and asks her to check on me if he doesn't reach me on his next break, in case I had fallen or something.
My mom calls me every other day. I should start answering the phone "Still not in labor."
In the mean time I am making a plan of attack for revisions and working on the novels I am critiquing.
So what's up with you guys? How are your projects going? I have to go Google more signs of labor...
