She Wasn’t Moving

I knew her patterns. When she was up and when she was resting. So when I couldn’t feel her moving that morning I started to panic a little.

I’d been having Braxton Hicks for a while now, ranging from just a small tightening to pains that doubled me over and brought instant tears. So I didn’t bat an eye when they started up. I said to myself “ok just be calm and don’t panic. She’s probably still sleeping.”
