Counting down to D-Day (Part 1)

Delivery Day, that is! I'm due on the 14th Oct. but think it will be earlier.

I was having Braxton Hicks yesterday. At 9.00 pm, in the bed, I tried not to be bothered by browsing the new Ikea catalogue, papa22beas was hooked on CivilisationII and the girls doing their bussines in the living!

I dozed off on and off, woke up at 11.30 pm and saw both girls were still awake but all nice and clean in their pyjamas. Papa was still on Civilisation!

Me: It is way past bedtime, shut it off and let the girls sleep.
Papa: *silent*

Contractions on and off, mild but enough to make me unconfortable

Me: I'm having contractions

Papa: Ya? *silent*

Me: It is quite regular! What if it is tonight, the floor needs mopping, I got a class tomorrow and, and ...I have not shop for the baby!
Papa: *silent*

A manja pregnant woman started to feel that she had been neglected by the husband


Me: *Got really irritated, raised voice* Abe, what if it is tonight?

Papa: *eyes still fixed on the screen* Abe standby la ni...but make sure it is for real. Got water coming out already?

Me: It is not necesserily the water?

Papa: *eyes still on the damn Civilisation* Check la got DILUTE or not!

Me: *It is DILATE la, you *$%^&#*...(and before doing anything dramatic and tragic like throwing that laptop out the window, I chose to calm myself down and went to the bathroom).

I stayed in the bathroom for a good 1/2 hour, and thought how I had wasted RM160 for the antenatal classes that we both attended 4 years ago! Feeling better, I tiptoed to the room. It was silence, Bea1 was asleep in the big bed, so as Bea2 but she was beside her papa on the toddler's bed (that was supposed to be Bea1's). They looked adorable, but papa was still on the game!

This morning, on the way to work:

Me: It is dilate la...not dilute
Papa: I know la...just testing you
Me: It was not funny, ok!
Papa: *smile*

The contraction is gone, and I'm back to my usual self. The class is done, and I have a long list of "what-to-do-before-the-arrival-of-the-new-baby". Hope I can start off with the shopping;)
