The Moment They've Been Waiting For

This mama included some of her birth story in her own words. She says, "Eventually I managed to sleep again and I remember feeling crampy - not contractions, just consistent crampiness. When I woke up around 7 I felt what I thought was a very light contraction. Sure enough, I had another one about 30 minutes later. I got out of bed and showered and got dressed, I needed to run a few errands if this was going to be the day. Unlike my first two labors, I was actually able to run errands. I got home and Paul left for work. He called me about 10 minutes later asking, 'Are you sure I should be at work? You don’t want me to come home?'"

"At that point, I kept thinking it could be early labor, it could stop at any point. I didn’t want him to waste a day off unnecessarily. Then he explained he had an appointment at 3PM, and it was a long appointment 3-4 hours. He wouldn’t be able to stop once he started and wanted to be sure he was available if I needed him. That changed my mindset, so I told him to come home." Isn't that such a mom thing to think about, running errands while in active labor?!
