Crisp days, crunchy leaves, cooler nights, soccer games... leads my mind to wander to a time when I was 39 weeks pregnant with Z. I had some spotting, it was my first pregnancy, I called the hospital. They told me I better come in and get checked. I had lost my mucus plug. That is where the spotting came from. I was dilating and having contractions but they were sporadic and irregular. "Walk around the hospital and see if the contractions get stronger." So I walked. Forget that. Nothing changed. I wanted to go home. So they let me go.
We went to a soccer game. Then we went to the movie store and rented something, I don't remember what. Then we went to bed. I couldn't sleep. The contractions were getting stronger and I had to sit up with each one. They were about seven minutes apart. I would lay down and close my eyes. Then I would bolt upright with each contraction. When they were five minutes apart and I couldn't stand the intensity of the contractions I woke DH. At around 2 am I got admitted again to the hospital. The nurses said, "We have been waiting for you to come back." Let me tell you, they knew a lot more about what was going to happen to me than I did. I wondered how they knew I would be back that night? I was young, innocent, and didn't have a clue!
We went to an Indiana University vs. Penn State game over the weekend. The IU team won 1-0. They are the only undefeated team in their league. The girls collected fall treasures from the ground. That my mind to wander to this weeks activities:
