I wake up today and I my belly is bigger than ever!!! I start to think "I am really pregnant and about to do this all over again!" I feel scared and a bit nervous now, but I remain calm and talk to myself a little more. I am 7 1/2 monthes and my baby will be here sooner than I know it, are we ready for him now? Either way he will be coming soon and last week we thought sooner than what we thought. I started having contractions and they would not stop..I drank water and got in the bath and still they remained 7minutes a part. Thats scary for me, because I had a son at 26 weeks and I didnt want to go through the premature thing again. But finally I decided to go to the hospital, and when I got there they told me I was dehydrated...I said dehydrated!!! I just drunk 44ozs of water, how could I possibly be dehydrated?? But they checked my urine and everything and indeed I was. So they gave me an IV and the contractions started to subside soon after. I just knew it was going to be the night that I had him, and I guarantee if I hadn't went to the hospital I would have went into labor fully. And that just made us think, what would we do if we had him now? I haven't had my baby shower yet, nor have I gotten him anything that would be beneficial now. I dont understand how I could have 2 other kids and not have any of their old stuff. I gave away my sons crib when he was 2 and when I had my daughter she was in a pink bassinet and then a girly crib so I gave that to my neighbor. All of my sons clothes I sold to a baby store and now I have to start from scratch. So here I am about to go to Kmart and start buying stuff, my mom told me to wait until after my baby shower but what if I dont get a lot of stuff, and when the time comes the money may be a little tighter. So I am going to get his tub, a bassinet, bathing essentials, some clothes, and a car seat. That sounds about right..hope I dont go crazy spending in there!!!
