These past week, I had a little bit of a scare that I was going into pre-term labor. For those of you reading that hate pregnancy details, you might want to stop reading. :) I have been progressively been feeling intense pelvic pressure, almost the feeling you get when you ride a bike all day, for a two weeks now. I decided to have my doc check it out since it was getting worse by the day and she said that Jack was really low. So they tested me for preterm labor and I came out negative. I was elated to hear this because if it was positive there was a 20% chance that he could come within the next three weeks and it would inevitably mean bed rest. That is a lot of bed rest people...a good 6-10 weeks and Jack could have possibly been in the NICU for a while. However, we escaped both of these sentences (for now) and I just have to back off on activity. I am hoping that Jack stays in the "box" at least until 36 weeks and then he can surprise us if he wants!
