You see, I'm stuck in the hospital.
At 28 weeks, baby boy got a little impatient and tried to make an early appearance... at least three times throughout the course of a week. He's a stubborn one. Thankfully we have some wonderful doctors who are just as stubborn, if not more so, at our hospital and they were able to stop the contractions and labor every time it popped up. We're fine now, but because I'm 3cm to 4cm dilated and 70% to 80% effaced (it depends on who you ask - one doctor here has HUGE hands) and I'm also borderline for preeclampsia (My blood pressure is great, but there's a little protein in my urine) the doctors have decided that I'm not going anywhere until the baby is born.
It's scary and it's tough, but we are in the best place possible. This hospital is more than equipped to handle high risk pregnancies, and their NICU is the best in the area - so if baby boy tries again, and they can't stop him, they are more than equipped to take care of him until he's healthy enough to go home.
But enough about that scary stuff - on to the WIPpet Wednesday goodness!
Anywho, since today is July 9th, here are nine lines from my fanfic Between Two Worlds. In it Norah decides to have a chat with her son (who is just as much of a troublemaker as my baby boy is).

Like sometimes how I joke about hitting Mud over the head because he’s annoying. He would never actually do that to you - just like I would never hurt a hair on Mud’s head.”“He did buy me a hamburger.” He admitted. “I guess he wouldn’t’ve done that if he was going to punish me.”Norah nodded. “See? He’s not such a bad guy... Though this may be the last ice cream you get for awhile after letting those pigs loose.”“You heard about that?”“I am Mom. I know all.”
