    Well lets stay positive!


    I'll be home all day tomorrow watching the weather.
    I'll also tune in to KSAT 12 & watch all the San Antonians go crazy!
    You know how we act when it rains?!

      I have family near corpus & in victoria & texas city. Basically all along the gulf coast. I get really worried when a hurricane heads that way.

      what down south of corpus are you in?

        I'm in Kingsville, Morgan. Looks like the hurricane is gonna hit us and will be at least a Cat 3.

        I am staying out and not evacuating....I would hate to have to deliver at the hospital here and not in Corpus because it SUCKS and they wont let Jay in, but my parents are staying and I am not gonna leave them.

        Normally I wouldn't even worry, but I have never been through a hurricane while pregnant! eek!

          Oh no Martha! Really? I hope it doesn't hit you guys.

          Do you have to board your windows shut and stuff?

            Yari- We will get something outta this...yesterday they said the "eye" was going to hit in my town, but now they are saying it might hit 2 hours north of us, kinda near where Morgan is from. If we just get rain and wind, that will be fine with me.


            We have storm windows on our home, so I don't think we will be boarding up...But, the house was built in the 20s and I know older homes are supposed to be built better. Hopefully!

              Oh my goodness!

              So what exactly our storm windows? Is everyone else in your town evacuating?

                Oh no Martha. I didn't realize this could send you into premature labor.

                So now I'm scared for you. I'm a sissy though and don't know a thing about hurricanes, but are you sure you shouldn't evacuate? What if you do go into labor? Could you get to a hospital? Ok, sorry if I'm dramatic, but I only have TV as my experience to a hurricane. LOL

                  So far they have a mandatory evacuation for the handicap & elderly. I think everyone I know is staying. People here don't like to leave the homes they raised their families in and stuff....which scares me because all the deaths that happened because of Katrina.

                  Storm windows are double paned and are supposed to withstand hurricanes. That's all I know...it's my parents house and they say they are safe, so I am going with that!

                  It's the change in barometric pressure that causes labor. My OB's office called to reschedule my appt. that was supposed to be tomorrow and I asked the nurse what she thought about me staying and she said it was up to me but because I was only 32 weeks I am probably okay, but if I was further along, evacuation would be best. But she said if I felt like I needed to go then to go.

                  If I go into labor and have to go to the hospital here, Jay can't stay with me. Only patients will be allowed. Could you imagine me having Noah w/o Jay there Now, that is what freaks me out.

                  I am just gonna take it easy and hope and pray that nothing happens. Usually I am a worrier, but I feel okay about this. :)

                    THat's good then Martha. I'm a total worrier too and think about all kinds of unrational things.

                    On a side note- I kinda always wanted to experience a hurricane and a tornado. I think it would be so exciting- in a scary, please don't hurt us or my house kind of way. In reality though, I would probably be bawling my eyes out if I were ever to be in one.

                      Martha - Just make sure you are safe and that you are completely prepared. Make sure that you keep us updates whether you stay or go!
