Okay, first of all a disclaimer so you all don't think I'm completely nuts. I have evidence to support my claim. And, it doesn't help that I finished reading "Breaking Dawn" the night before they induced me. For those of you who don't know what that is (is there really anyone?) it involves vampires and werewolves and I so can't believe I read, let alone enjoyed it. Anyway, so all day Friday while I was in labor I kept having images from the book flash through my mind. It's not so hard to imagine contractions feeling as if the baby is trying to shred you from the inside out! It was a little disconcerting to say the least.
Then in the middle of the night Sunday night, Aliya spit up a little blood. I called the Dr.'s office and they said as long as it was bright red it probably meant that she had ruptured some sensitive blood vessels in her throat and it was no big deal. So in the middle of the night Monday night I sat her up to burp her and suddenly she had blood all over the front of her and down her sleeve. Then she spit out this big glob of bloody goo that I managed to catch with the spit rag. The next morning she had a black diaper and at this point the Dr. said to come right in. They tested the blood and determined (don't ask me how) that the blood was in fact mine. Gross! What's weird is that I have not really seen blood on me. I'm a little sore but please! So, you see, I have in fact given birth to a bloodsucker! Now if she starts speaking to me..........she obviously has the ability to place images in my mind...........creepy!
