Would you guys believe that Charlie tried to come out early? Well, a not so cozy 14 hour hospital stay sure put him in his place, now didn't it. We showed him!
I woke up the other night, not feeling so great. And when I say not feeling so great, I really mean, feeling like I was on the verge of death, and begging Christopher to find some kind of miracle relief. I thought maybe I had just eaten something bad (you know, with all of my crazy food allergies, that's usually the case). After a few minutes, I announce to Christopher... "I think I might be having contractions". 3 minutes later I notice another one. Followed by another. Some more after that. And then another. And then... holy crap, I'm in labor! How did that happen? Christopher made me a 2am bubble bath with my fancy lavender soap, but nope, Charlie wasn't having it. We called and woke up my good friend Kristen, and she came over and swept me off to labor and delivery. Because I didn't exactly go into natural labor with Eleanore, especially 6 weeks early, I half expected the nurses to tell me it was a false alarm, and send me home. Fast forward a few shots, collapsed veins, pretty pills, knock out drugs, and 14 long hours later... mission keep-Charlie-inside was a success! No baby yet. Lets hope he stays in until his scheduled arrival date of December 26th.
