What a weekend!

Friday night I woke up at 3:30 a.m. and didn't go back to sleep until 8:30 a.m. I took a 2 hour nap and then Chris and I ran some errands before heading out to Leesburg to have dinner with his parents. We went to my favorite restaurant and got a Dutch Apple Pie from my favorite pie place. The meal was fantastic and life was good.

Until about 11:30 that night. Chris woke up to a nice case of food poisoning. Liquids flying out of all ends. It was violent and horrible and I felt so bad for him. There wasn't much we could do but ride it out, and it finally ended around 3:30 a.m. Poor guy lost about 3 lbs from the whole ordeal.

Meanwhile, while this is all happening, I'm having contractions 10 minutes apart. I'd been having them all day off and on. I started timing them and they were fairly regular, but as soon as I started to worry a little, they'd stop or switch it up to 20 minutes apart. All I could imagine was Chris and I in adjoining hospital beds. We both went back to sleep and woke up at a fairly reasonable hour and he was feeling better and was hungry so we knew it was over. But we spent all day in bed...him recuperating, and me trying not to go into labor. Good times. I got nothing done around the house that I wanted to do, except laundry. Another weekend gone with no progress on the state of our madness that we call home.

Today, Chris is feeling normal again and I've only had a few contractions today so far.

I hope you're both feeling better (and taking care of each other). So you're doing the water thing for contractions and changing positions when they get strong? Well, stay on top of it, mama! Just when you think you have a pattern, they stop. Isn't this fun!!??

I'm glad you're both feeling better!

Things are really heating up now!!

So sorry to hear that Chris was sick. Food poisoning makes people so violently ill. Wicked way to spend a night.

Get yourself some extra rest any time you can. :)
