Probably just a case of the gassies!

I guess I had a bit of a scare yesterday. I was at work when I started getting really bad tummy pains, like to the point where I could barely stand and leaning over made it even worse. They were not down low. It hurt so bad. I tried to stick it out, thinking it would pass, but it kept getting worse and I felt like I may vomit and/or pass out. So, I tell Leigh Ann and she asks if I'm having contractions and I'm like I don't think so, I dunno! Well, out of the 7 girls working yesterday, only 1 has had kids, so I was going to ask her, but I was pretty positive that contractions are down low, not way up high. I did Google it. :O) However, since Leigh Ann was worried about baby, I started to really worry. At first I was not because I thought it was just some weird thing going on. I ended up going outside and calling Sean from my cell phone because I knew I would start crying, which I did. I worried him and he said call the doctor. I called and the nurse said baby was probably sitting on a nerve, to go home, take a bath and some Tylenol. I felt so bad leaving Leigh Ann and everyone else at work (it was super busy), but they were very understanding and concerned. So I left at 3 o'clock and did as doctor ordered. I felt so much better after the bath and Tylenol, but I have to say I was also very gassy when I got home, so I am more thinking that is what it was. ;/

Thankfully through the whole thing baby did not seem to mind and was busy as ever moving around in my belly. And to top it off I have a cold!

I am just glad baby is fine!!!! We started to get super scared and I came to realize that this is the first scare we have had all pregnancy; the rest has been so normal, smooth and wonderful. WOW, it was no fun! I think I have learned through all this to relax some more, listen to my body, take care of baby even more than I do and not worry and stress about what I need to get done, money, school, work, and everything else under the sun!
