We had a bit of a scare earlier this week. I went in to the doctor's to check out the awful pain I've been having TWICE before they concluded I was having contractions (didn't say BH or labor, but they did say my cervix was softer than it should be). Ugh. They told me to stay home on bed rest this week and take some medicine to relax the uterus, so we'll see if anything has changed by the appointment next week. So far, I haven't had any more pain, so yay! But it's a HUGE bummer that I'm stuck on the couch and DH's birthday was yesterday. I couldn't even bake him a cake. :-( And the boss just told me to stay home regardless of any change next week, as they can get by without me and premature labor is a pretty scary thing to even have as a possibility. So I guess I'm being forced on maternity leave early. That's three months of pay we were counting on, and what on earth will I do all day... Sigh. Thanks, gals.
