Excuse me, I'm in labor.

I went to the grocery store yesterday in the late afternoon. I hadn't planned on it but had to go at the last minute. My back had been bothering me a little bit as I had been on my feet making cookies in the morning and then I took the LB for a stroll. Lately, the minute I start doing any cardio excercise I get a cramp in my stomach and it only got worse on the way home. So we got home and I took off for store. and then it was excruciating, the pain. My mind started racing. I've heard of stories of back labor and I started to panic. I can't have this baby in Sav A Center! Yuk! Then I remembered seeing a lady I knew, just an acquaintance, on the way in and was wondering if she would think I were crazy if I asked her for help. I left my cell phone in the jog stroller and I didn't know what else to do. I leaned on the cart and kept going. All in the name of Meringue Powder which I never found. I should have known. Everyone on the internet said you could find it in the bakery section of any market. Hello! Of course, not in New Orleans. That's always the way. Anyway, I made it home and collapsed in a kitchen chair and started crying with J standing over me as if I had lost my mind. and I still have 2 more months of this.

Did you call your doctor? I'm concerned about you! Hope you are feeling better today. And I agree--Sav-A-Center--No place to birth a baby!!!

Thanks for worrying but I'm okay. I see my doctor this week. I feel sorry for him because he'll get an earful of bitching. I just think that my stomach muscles weren't as tight to begin with this time around and my back is paying the price, hopefully.
