Two shirts and a visit to the hospital
I have to preface the title to this post with an, "I and baby are OK. Don't worry". However, I did have a scare last week which is why I haven't gotten around to posting lately. Late last Wednesday, I was experiencing some crazy pains in my belly and tightening that I couldn't describe. It didn't hurt or anything but, it was tiring me out and I had them on and off for a few hours. It was enough to scare me into calling my doctor the next morning. Thinking she would simply to tell me to drink some water and take it easy, I was pretty nonchalant on the phone about it with the nurse. 30 minutes later, the nurse called me back and told me to go to the hospital! I nearly freaked out! I drove myself to the hospital where my mother met me and had to be hooked up to a monitor to make sure I wasn't really having contractions. Turns out it was simply dehydration and was causing some nasty Braxton-Hicks and I am baby owl are fine. It did scare me into taking it easy and slowing down.
Moving on, about my outfit....the skirt is actually, well, a shirt. Its one of those babydoll tube tops and I found it for super cheap at Forever 21. But it works really well as a skirt because I can fold down the 'tube' part however I want. Great for my 6 months picture, no?
