So I was called as the "Teachings For Our Times" RS teacher and last Sunday was my first day to teach. On top of the stress of being 35 weeks pregnant; I was SOOOOOO nervous. I was just sure the nerves were going to put me into labor before I ever got up there. That or my water was going to break during the lesson. I just had a feeling about it. LOL. SOOOO, I didn't go into labor beforehand. Next, I just had to get through the lesson without labor actually starting. I stood up, put my papers in front of me, then proceeded to apologize for being really nervous and really pregnant.
Then I got a MAJOR contraction. Couldn't talk through it, except just as it was starting to apologize that being nervous gives me contractions.
awesome. I was just sure this was it. LOL! I was going into labor in front of EVERYONE.
Amazingly, I was able to get through that first contraction and the rest of them were not strong enough that I couldn't speak. Somewhere amidst some great comments, I wasn't quite as nervous and the contractions actually stopped! And my water didn't break! WOOHOO! Best part about it was I think I gave the whole lesson. Its all a bit hazy now, but people told me I did a great job. Go me! LOL!
