I'm 35 weeks along today! Talmage was due October 7, and after moving to Houston at the end of August we found out that due to a Texas law requiring you to be employed for 30 days before health insurance coverage begins, we would be uninsured for the month of September. We prayed all September that Talmage would not be born in that month, and thankfully he stayed put until October 11.
This time around I am due October 12, and last week Sam came home with the news that his funding was changing from the graduate school to his professor...which means once again we will be without health insurance for the month of September. Amazing irony, huh? Once again we are praying that the baby won't be born in September.
With Talmage I didn't feel a single contraction until I was in labor, but with this baby I have them all the time and some can be fairly strong. I know that's not too uncommon, but let's just say we will breathe much easier when the month of September has passed! Hang in there, little guy!
