breathe throught it...

I experienced a pretty intense and somewhat painful Braxton Hicks contraction in the middle of my class today. During my lecture. Causing me to completely lose my train of thought. These next few weeks should be interesting. Hopefully I didn't freak out any of my students.

Tell them not to worry until they see a puddle around your ankles.


Of course, then you could find a way to have a water bottle gush out from under you, that would be hilarious.

But then you would be branded the gal that cried labor, and they wouldn't believe you when it did happen...

To my experience, sitting in at lectures my bosses give, students don't pay attention to anything relating to the lecture... So I think you're fine... You didn't freak out anyone (aside from yourself maybe?)

Pregnant women lose their train of thought for no reason at all. They probably expect that. However, it probably doesn't stop them from laughing about it after class.

"Did you see Mrs. Pixie space out durinig the lecture today."

"Yeah. I think she was thinking about Ryan Seacrest in a bear suit."
