Thanks for the comments on my last post. I guess I'll keep the blog going for you fabulous people. :)
We chose the name Jack shortly after our ultrasound at almost 21 weeks. It had never been one of the options we’d ever discussed but the week after the ultrasound we found out that my grandpa, nick-named Jack, was being put on hospice. I’ve always admired my grandpa’s happy demeanor no matter the situation. And then we found out that Aaron’s great grandpa was named James Jackson, so it was cool to have the name come from both sides. I don’t like Jackson though, just Jack. I felt we should make a top ten list and then a top five and then top three, but Aaron said he knew the name he wanted and that no lists mattered to him! We began calling him Jack and never thought differently. The girls called him Jack for a few months before he was born.facetimed with my family until about 10:30. The whole time I felt uncomfortable and had a lot of Braxton hicks, but didn't think about it and just assumed it would go away when I went to sleep. Around 11 I noticed that I was really hurting and that the "Braxton Hicks" were coming at least every 10 min, sometimes every 5. I kept tossing and turning just wishing I could fall asleep so that the pain would go away. I kept thinking that if I could just fall asleep I'd wake up in the morning like nothing had happened. About midnight Aaron asked if I was still hurting. I said I was “having Braxton Hicks that just hurt so bad right on the top of where his head is.” He said "So you’re having contractions?" I said "no, just Braxton Hicks that hurt". He said "So contractions?" And told me I should fall asleep and then he fell right back asleep. I kept trying to fall asleep, but felt every contraction and just thought how bad they hurt on his head area. They didn't feel like menstrual cramps like I remembered with Eliza and Camille.
