I don’t even know what to write this week; if it wasn’t for the big calendar near me, I wouldn’t have any clue what day it was. This week has been a wonderful blur. New Year’s Eve I felt a bit strange, but blamed it on being stressed out and super pregnant. To cheer myself up, I got all dressed up, but on a ton of cat-eye eyeliner and went out to a friend’s for a New Year’s Eve get together. I was standing in the kitchen, eating cheese, not even 10 minutes after arriving, when I felt a gush. Sure enough, my water broke. For some reason (and I am sure my friends are still laughing about it) I didn’t want to freak anyone out, so I ate dinner, has some sparking juice then went home. As soon as I got home, my husband knew something was up and when I told him to get his shoes back on he knew it was time to go. 12 hours later Scout was born, hooray! It has been a long 9 months and so worth the little bundle I got at the end. I cannot wait to see what else 2013 has in store, so far it has been amazing.
I want to give a huge thanks you to McKay Dee Hospital and staff for being amazing throughout my whole pregnancy and so incredibly accommodating when it seemed nothing was going as planned with my birth.
