Hubby was in Germany this Labor Day weekend but lucky for me a good friend of mine came into town. And due to unforeseen circumstances surrounding her planned accommodations she got to stay with me a Friday and Saturday night!! She used to live here so she enjoyed time visiting some of her favorite places and friends.
While hubby was in Germany his phone wouldn't work. (even though he has an international calling plan) He was able to get on the internet and tweet me. Thank God for twitter! He also brought back some of my favorite chocolate....kinder. Any time we're in Europe we bring back tons!
My sister came and stayed with me while he was away. I love spending time with her. Little did I know what a big football fan she is. She always had the TV on a game it seemed like. I could write a whole post on why she is an amazing woman and why I am so proud of who she has become!
I have learned over the years that almost every time hubby is out of town something happens. And this time was no different. Sunday night while sleeping I woke up to a painful contraction. With little man and this pregnancy I have had braxton hicks contractions but they were never painful. This one was painful. I rolled over grabbed my phone and googled. From what I was reading braxton hicks can be painful. So I went back to sleep only to wake up again to a painful contraction a short time later. Then I became really nauseous. This went on the entire night. But my contractions were never regular and never got worse. They continued on through Monday. I didn't want to go to the hospital only to annoy the L&D nurse and for her to tell me it's nothing.
My sister was amazing enough to let me get a much needed nap in while she watched little man. The contractions eventually subsided but I went ahead and made an appointment with my OB yesterday. After sharing what happened I received a little lecture. Apparently I should have gone into labor and delivery. Her words "I'd rather you go and annoy some L&D nurse than you have a baby at 26 weeks in your home!" Let's just say lesson learned. She checked everything and everything looked fine. Thank God.
While I was napping my sister snapped this shot of little man. He opened the dishwasher and climbed in. (she had emptied it earlier but didn't know how to lock it) I am learning that there is baby proof and then there is little man proof. The dishwasher is just baby proof. :/
I hope you all enjoyed a relaxing three day weekend with your families!
