Today, Jackie kept asking over and over, "What season is it, Mommy? Summer?" I would always reply, "No, Jackie, it's fall right now."
Apparently, my body took that to heart. We had gone over to my friend Danielle's house this afternoon, and the kids had been running around outside a lot. The weather is beautiful in the afternoons! Then, we went inside, and I guess Ben got a little bit of cabin fever for the little while we were inside because as soon as it was time to go, and I got the kiddos outside, he started to run away. I stepped forward to grab him, and my foot kept sliding. Both of my feet slid out from underneath me, and I fell hard on my hip. I haven't felt quite the same the rest of the day. I'm hoping that I'm alright. I'm not bleeding, and my water didn't break, so I'm thinking I'm alright. However, when I fell, I felt really wet for a minute. As soon as the horrible pain went away enough for me to be able to stand up, I went in to the bathroom. I lost a good chunk of mucus. I'm slightly worried. I'm just going to be really careful for the next few days, and I'm going to be on the lookout for any signs that anything is wrong. The baby is moving a bunch, but it doesn't feel frantic, so I think we're alright. Sheesh though. It really scared me!
