Scaring my sweet baby

We had a minor scare this evening. It didn't feel minor at the time, and our reactions (more mine I'm sure) ended up scaring Little Elvis as well.

We had just finished blowing up his little swimming pool when my stomach began killing me.

I went inside, and by the time Bob and Little Elvis entered, I was sitting in front of the toilet battling waves of nausea. I was hot, sweaty and worried about the fact that I'm just 34 weeks pregnant.

Bob and Little Elvis stood in the door. I'm sure my voice was panicked. Little Elvis began crying.

After a couple of minutes, the nausea and sweats passed. My guys went back out to play in the pool while I stayed by the bathroom, hoping the pain would go away and not be contractions.

A few minutes later, they came back inside. Bob said Little Elvis wanted to check on me. My sweet little boy ended up sitting with me in the bathroom until the last wave of nausea passed.

I think I had one sort of contraction, which I'm sure was Braxton-Hicks. That was it. The pain is now mostly gone. We think Baby Plum may have dropped, and this must have somehow impacted my stomach?

I am surprised by how sweet and caring Little Elvis was during this episode. But also worried about how Little Elvis will handle it if I actually do go into labor around him. I am going to need to work on my panic voice, and maybe I should stop hoping for a delivery around week 37, huh?

Oh gosh, that sounds scary. I am sorry, I hope Baby decides to stay in there until he is fully "cooked." What a sweet boy you have to come back and check on you and sit with you. Don't worry about scaring him - I'm sure he won't even remember it a few days from now. Take care!

maybe he'll be your calm if it does happen. (but, yeah- let's hope for the schedule so nothing icky happens around him).
