Today’s the big birthday party. We’re going swimming this afternoon and then grilling out in the park. Pretty low key; about 25 people. I got Aviana’s dream of a three tier cake decorated last night and took a picture of it in case Kevin tripped going down the stairs. We just have some last minute food and drink prep to take care of today.
I saw my chiropractor Friday. He has a ton of experience in obstetrics and said he can tell when labor is imminent because my back will feel like ripe melon. Labor isn’t imminent. Nevertheless, I couldn’t help thinking I might be in early labor yesterday.
I felt queasy all day and normally, I have (BH) contractions pretty much only in the evening when I sit down to relax, and when I’m in bed waiting for sleep. Yesterday, however, I was having them at least every half hour and they were a lot more intense. My mom was oh so encouraging when she related how with my sister, she had contractions every five minutes all afternoon and evening for five days before her birth.
Obviously, since I am not in labor and have no baby, I was not in early labor yesterday.
Although, now that the wheat harvest is over and Kevin has the field planted to soybeans and the birthday party festivities will soon be past, Kevin has given me permission to birth.
Thank you, dear.
