noun: normalcy
the condition of being normal; the state of being usual, typical, or expected.
"let's try to get some normality back in our lives"
synonyms: normalcy, business as usual, the daily round

That's my goal for the coming days...find some balance and a sense of normality.

In my last post, I let you know that I had been sick with a gastro bug that landed me in the hospital for a few days. Well...that evil gastro bug made a reappearance and once again I ended up back in the hospital.

Last Thursday at 20 weeks 0 days, I spent a few hours at Labor & Delivery with contractions. As you can imagine, contractions at 20 weeks was a horribly frightening experience and one that I would not like to repeat. The gasto bug caused me to become very dehydrated and the dehydration caused contractions.

I'm very happy to report though although the contractions were coming every 7-8 minutes, they were never strong enough to make changes to my cervix. After 12 hours and many liters of fluid, I was allowed to go home. 

I spent the next few days in my Snoogle cacoon resting and taking good care of baby boy...

Today I'm feeling much, much better and looking forward to getting back to normal.


  1. I am so glad everything is okay!! No more hospital trips for a while okay?!!

  2. Goodness gracious, friend. I'm with Our Journey-- NO MORE hospital visits!! How incredibly scary!! I'm glad they took good care of you and that your body understood that contractions did not mean it was time for baby!! I hope you are getting much stronger and feeling better!

  3. Eek...that must have been terribly scary!! Glad your are back home and resting up with baby boy right where he needs to be!

  4. Wow. Glad that you and baby are okay. Get well soon!
