On Monday, August 17th, I woke up around 6:30 a.m. or so to a persistent pain that I thought could be contractions. I was somewhat in disbelief after having had false labor previously and after hearing stories about women who thought they were in labor and it was just mother nature calling if you know what I mean. All the while though I was emailing my POWs just to confirm what I thought I was feeling. Thanks ladies.
Anyway, I had planned to go into the office Monday for at least a half-day to tie up loose ends like put on my "away" voicemail recording, etc. Charm City Daddy kept telling me I was crazy for even thinking of it, particularly after I had taken Thursday and Friday off b/c I wasn't feeling like myself and was worried that if I did too much activity Charm City Baby wouldn't wait for her daddy to get home from his business trip on Saturday.
Here he is talking to his mom...
(notice the blankets as CCD kept the room thermostat super cold as to "cut back on germs.")
