On the back of the card the insurance company had put a list of the symptoms of early labor. And I had two of them last night. TWO.
Last night at the time, I thought that they were just symptoms of my violent coughing. Today, after reading the back of that card, I hyperventilated. Okay, I am exaggerating. I almost hyperventilated.
I called the nurse in a state of panic. The state of panic has almost become my default state when it comes to all things baby-related.
The nurse calmed me down. She said I had nothing to worry about, and confirmed my conclusion of last night that these things were normal for someone coughing a lot.
Crisis averted for now.
