Unborn Baby Tries To Kill Mother -- Police Baffled As To How To Prosecute

Speck and I have been discovering the joy of the brackston hicks contractions recently. I've been getting them here and there for a couple of months now, but for the last week or so, they have been getting stronger and more regular. Last night and the night before, they were so regular that Ian and I were on the brink of calling the hospital, only to have them dwindle away before we reached the phone. I can just imagine Speck in there, laughing it up about all the hooplah, leaving me an emotional wreck who can't sleep the rest of the night. I have been feeling nervous about the whole labor and delivery thing, especially in light of Speck's large size, but I am now at a point where delivering a giant baby sounds way better than sharing body space with a giant baby, especially one with such a perverse sense of humor. Get out, Speck! Get out and quit messing with me!

I am beginning to wonder if Speck will ever be born. Perhaps she will live out her years in-utero. School will be tough.

It figures -- we had one baby who wouldn't stay in, and now we have one who won't come out. She is just trying to distinguish herself from her older brother, and make her own unique mark on my health and sanity.

Thanks for trying, anyway. :-)

Chelsa, it's my duty as the self appointed Tillman alpha female to let you in on a well kept secret. Tillman women have this little evil streak; not in a bad way, but evil nonetheless. Speck's just starting early. Think of this as the first of many "mother-daughter" moments, not an offense to be prosecuted.

Seriously, hang in there. I can't wait to see a picture of my new niece soon.

I've known Ian a long time, Aunt Carol -- it's not just the Tillman women who have the evil streak. :-)
