The story I'm about to share is embarrassing to say the least. But I have a sense of humor and hopefully you do too. So last night a little after 3 in the morning we had a big thunderstorm: lots of wind, rain, lightning, etc. I was having a hard time sleeping through it because 1. I was a little nervous being home alone...Nate had recently left for work and 2. I was pretty consumed with the idea of going into labor soon. (This story has not helped my anxieties. I don't think Jansen would be much help...) To pass some sleepless time I was on Nate's laptop looking at various things and came across the American Pregnancy Association's Signs of Labor. As I glanced down at number one and saw "Lightning" I could not believe my eyes. I thought to myself, lightning is a sign of labor! And we are having a huge lightning storm outside! Now this is where my foolishness stops and I laugh out loud at myself because I realize it says "lightening" (which is when the baby drops deeper into your pelvis) not "lightning." This all happened in a matter of seconds and mind you it was 3 in the morning. So take it easy on me as you think to yourself HOW DUMB I AM!!! But I had to share it.
