Should I spend this Saturday visiting the attractions in Chattanooga with an army of Girl Scouts? It is less than a two-hour drive from Knoxville to Chattanooga. Staying busy is better than sitting around worrying and waiting. Doug is getting nervous and I have agreed to confess to the midwife about the planned outing. My braxton-hicks are feeling more real and coming much more frequently. What makes us both nervous is the very short labor I had with Amy.
Nurse A checked and said “You are only 3, so you’ll get some vitamin P when your midwife arrives.” Just 5 minutes later there was a shift change and Nurse B had to check for herself. Her words were something along the line of “She’s full and ready. Don’t push yet! Get the midwife on the phone now!” Doug might remember details better as I was busy ignoring the nurses (pushing).
To go or not to go, that is the question.
Doug’s plans for next weekend are even worse. He is going camping in a cave with the Boy Scouts.
cave = no cell phone reception
