The Frankenbaby Chronicles

Two girls, three cats, some frozen sperm, a doctor's office, and a big dream.

Full Moon Madness!

Today was supposed to be the start of my big "special couple time all the time" weekend. Of course, it didn't happen that way. We spent most of the morning arguing and I spent a good chunk of the day crying. Then eventually we went to see Sicko, got some dinner at the Mediterranean place, and stopped at the pastry shop. (I had a chocolate covered cannoli. Mmm.)

We heard the town fireworks and watched a little television, then headed into bed. The plan was to resurrect the weekend tomorrow with a full day of plans: church in the morning, an afternoon at the park complete with pedal boat and mini golf, and then dinner at a friend's place.

Instead, my water broke completely unexpectedly around 11:10pm. Sploosh! And continued to gush. And gush. It was pretty freaky and funny. I called my midwife and she told me to try to get some rest before the contractions came.

But first we had to set up the cosleeper. And then Jen took a shower. And then I couldn't sleep. And then I started getting contractions.

Jen is snoring soundly in the other room and I am so tired and jealous that I just want to cry! At least ONE of us is sleeping, right? Right?

Ugh. But it looks like we'll have a baby soon!
