Weekend Writing Warriors Post #8SUNDAY-Love sharing pieces of my story with you

Hello again friends.  I don’t have anything really interesting to talk about this week other than the fact that I painted my bathroom door this week—-oh and I joined Weight Watchers.  We’ll see how that works, yesterday was a going away party for a friend at work and we had deep dish pizza and cake-I’m saying we because I had it too!  I know!  So disappointed with myself.  Going to also try this Dr. Oz swimsuit slim down thing that my good friend Tamara showed me.  Got to run to Aldi’s in a little bit and buy the Apple Cider Vinegar and juice.

Anyway, enough about me.  Let’s get further into “In Too Deep,” the second book in the Liliana Series.  I’m jumping ahead a bit here and sharing this part with you.  I’m not sure why I chose this part, maybe because so many people I know have had babies in the last month, anyhow I hope that you enjoy it.


The contractions were increasing in intensity and I felt like there was no break in between each one. I lay moaning in the bed, wishing that this was a dream.  I hoped to God that this wasn’t real, but I realized that it was very real, the people standing around my bed reminded me of that. Soon the doctor instructed me to push in a certain direction, as he pressed down hard against me as if to direct me.  I didn’t realize that I had already been pushing and suddenly felt like my insides were about to burst, sweat dripping from my forehead as I lay back in defeat. The nurses in the room came over and held onto my feet already positioned in metal brackets.  How much worse could this get I wondered as my legs began to tremble uncontrollably.

“Push,” the doctor said again and again.


And that’s it.  I hope you enjoyed it.  Visit my Weekend Writing Warrior friends here.

    Very realistic! So many women would be able to relate to that! I won’t be on W.W.W. again this weekend, but I wanted to ready your 8 anyways.

  4. Epidural and right now. Good eight showing her emotions and the just business attitude of the staff.

    Great 8! I was there. I was thinking what she was thinking, and experiencing what she was experiencing. Very tense, very emotional. I cannot wait to read more!

  7. Great job with the realism. Good luck with weight watchers. A friend of mine did it few years ago and got some pretty remarkable results.

    Do not beat yourself up about pizza and cake! For one thing pizza frequently has all the original food groups. For another, deprivation never works anyway. If you’re not having them every day, you’re fine. I’m trying to lose weight too. It takes time, but we can do it!

    That eight is scary. I remember giving birth (four times). Glad I had better doctors for the most part. I feel so bad for our heroine! I hope the delivery will be done soon!

    Labor does not sound like fun to me. Hers especially. A little empathy would go a long way, but it doesn’t seem like she’s going to get it…
