A Little Scare

This morning I tripped over my big fat cat. (As opposed to my tiny svelte one)

When I feed them or open the closet that has their treats, I am always very careful. That is not how this happened.

I went to a corner in my room to take something off of my night stand. In the meantime, Loki decided to take a nap right in my return path. I turned around, took two steps, and promptly tripped over him.

I fell pretty hard.

So, I got on the internet and researched. The answer? “Try not to fall when pregnant.”

Thanks. That helps.

So, I called the Women’s Clinic and the nurse or receptionist responds, “Oh, Dear.”

Now I feel like crying.

So, off to the Women’s Clinic where I sit and wait. The doctor was really nice though. He told me that if I was not cramping I was probably fine. Still, he did an ultrasound and checked for the heartbeat.

Baby waved and wiggled.

So, just a little rugburn and soreness, all else is well.

I forgot to add that last night I had a dream that I was horseback riding but I was scared because I was afraid to fall and hurt the baby. Before anyone gets any funny ideas, I actually do love to horseback ride. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

  1. Take good care. One thing you shouldn’t do that I did, especially in the late months of your pregnancy: Don’t reach up high in your kitchen cabinets. Use a step ladder.

    My mother-in-law saw me do it several times when I was pregnant with our first born and warned me that it could cause the cord to wrap around the babies neck. Guess what? It did. I don’t know if reaching was the cause but it really gave us a scare.

    Thankfully, the doctors delivered our son quickly and all turned out well. He is getting ready to go to Iraq and is married with a two and a half year old son.

    I was careful not to do any reaching up with our two daughters and they were delivered safely.

    So take care and treat yourself a lot. Get a lot of sleep.

  6. Hi Laura,

    You should always be careful not to fall…but that the cord thing is an old wives tale. It happens sometimes but reaching your arms over the head is not the cause! I’m glad everything worked out well… but nothing you did caused the problem!
