My scare this morning!

  • As this didn't put me into labor this morning, nothing will!

    Christine woke me up way too early with a bad nightmare. I was holding her on my lap downstairs when I heard the most horrible crash from above us. The girls bedroom is right above where we were sitting and my gut reaction was that Nicole had fallen out of the top bunk! There was no crying and I was sure I'd find her unconscious! I started running with Christine in my arms and dropped her to her feet somewhere in the room. I ran up the stairs skipping every 2-3 stairs and nearly falling on my face. The panic! I raced into her room and she was sleeping peacefully in her bed!

    Christine caught up with me huffing and puffing and we started investigating the house for what could have caused the crashing sound. It ended up being 3 wooden puzzles that had fallen off the shelves in their school room. They hit a wood box of blocks on the floor causing the sound.

    It took me hours to calm myself down from that experience. Everett was going crazy with the adrenalin rush! I figure if that didn't put me into labor that nothing would! My hips are killing me now and keep feeling like they are going to buckle under me. I need a nap!

  • I still keep panicking when I think of it, but seeing Nicole safely up in her bed asleep was the biggest relief ever! They've never fallen out of bed before and the top bunk has very high rails on it. Higher then any bunk bed I've ever seen before, but that sound was so deafening it still haunts me! My blood pressure was about 20 pts higher then normal today at my appt, but I have such low BP normally that the dr. didn't even take notice of it.

    I haven't been having any contractions or anything that you'd think a stressful event would have on me this pg. I think I'll go finish up their Easter outfits. Its the only thing that got me to calm down earlier!

  • Where was DH when all this was happening??

    I'm glad no one was hurt. I think I would have had the baby on the way up the stairs!
    Keep him cooking a bit longer!
