39 weeks… and a scare.

Well, by all three of my due dates (ha) I’m at LEAST 39 weeks along today.  If not further.  🙂 And after the day we had on Tuesday, I’m especially grateful. I woke up on Tuesday and felt wet.   I immediately panicked as I remembered all of the contractions I had felt in the middle […]
