YAY!!! The moment I've been waiting for
since, well, all year.
Although I think it's labor time & all I want to do is get to the hospital,
Tat suggested we hang out for a few minutes for one last photo session.
Last family picture of just the 4 of us:
(Avy is mad she has to be in the pic bc she wants to be playing with Blakely)
Last big belly picture before the belly is just jelly with no baby in it:
But wait...FALSE ALARM.
So it was a super, super hot day in our house yesterday.
So hot that one may or may not sweat excessively enough to be tricked into thinking their water broke.
Here's the story:
I took a nice long nap with the kids.
I woke up feeling like my temperature was about 150 degrees.
I went to the bathroom.
After I pulled my clothes back on, I noticed that my pants were soaking wet.
Like SOAKING wet.
I thought, hmmmm...maybe, since I'm due to have a baby in 4 days, I should call the Dr. to see if this could be it.
So I left a message & explained my situation.
I was quickly called back by the nurse & told that yes, in fact it does sound like my water broke & I should head to labor & delivery right away.
I called Tat.
He answered & said,
"Are you in labor?"
"Well, I think my water may have just broke."
He immediately announces to EVERYONE he's in the meeting with,
"Hayley's water broke! I gotta go!"
I hear cheering & excitement in the background.
I said, "Hon, it may have, I don't know, don't get too excited.
Just come home & take me to the hospital."
Meanwhile, Kaari & Blakely come to save the day to sit with the reds & then Whit Whit showed up later to take over.
So we go to the hospital.
They check me out, do a swab test to check for amniotic fluid,
& then report that my water has not broken yet.
They sent us home.
You can only imagine at this point I've got both fists aimed up in the air screaming
There were several silver linings to the night:
1- I got a coveted water bottle from the hospital, which means I'll get even ANOTHER one in a few days!
2- Since Whit was with the tots, we went to Xahn.
I can NOT get over how delicious that joint is.
Tyler & I pretty much embarrassingly licked our plates clean.
3- We went to Pinkberry.
I got the pb & chocolate swirl. YUM.
4- We came home to sleeping kids & a clean house.
(Thanks, Whitters! Your birthday post is coming next)
Ah, the lengths I won't go to in order to get some pampering.
