Alone, but not really
Just as I thought I was alone, on my long road trip yesterday, I realized I wasn’t. The fetus, which we have been calling Cletus the Fetus, made its presence known. And I experienced my first Braxton-Hicks contractions. Not enough to be painful, or even bothersome. But enough to remind me that another life is preparing itself to enter this world – one I will probably love passionately. But right now, it is nothing more than an unknown companion tagging along on my solo road trip.
