I woke up an hour later and thought my water was leaking and I was cramping about every 5 minutes.

Selfish

What is it to be selfish? When I think of selfish I think of doing something for yourself, something only for you. Most of the time being selfish has negative connotations, why can't it be something associated with something positive? How often as a parent do we get to do something selfish?
