Whether you believe pregnancy lasts for 9 or 10 months, everyone can agree that it’s a very long time for a woman to carry another human around wherever she goes. So when a woman experiences false labor towards the end of her pregnancy, it can leave her feeling “frustrated and defeated.”
When Kaylee Bays’ due date approached, she started becoming increasingly uncomfortable. She told Babble that even her coworkers noticed she wasn’t her usual self.
“The court workers and I would all make jokes about the baby staying in forever,” Bays told Babble.
As the Utah mother’s due date approached, she was getting anxious about meeting her bundle of joy.
One day Bays experienced on and off contractions, and she was sure that this was it—she was going to have her baby. But after experiencing contractions all day, she told Babble they stopped. Her contractions were a sign of false labor.
Bays, who works as a clerk at a courthouse in Utah, returned to her job, and while her colleagues were amazed that she was still pregnant, the clerk announced she was going to do something drastic and hysterical.
Bays drafted an eviction notice for her unborn child.
The mother-to-be drafted a hilarious eviction notice, giving her unborn child three days “to vacate for nuisance.” The eviction notice was apparently unusually harsh—the three days included both holidays and weekends!
“Mommy is uncomfortable and running out of room for you! Too much heartburn and rib kicking, and I’m sick of waddling!!!” she wrote on the notice.
And of course to make it official she had one of the judges, Judge Lynn Davis, sign it.
Less than a day after the eviction notice was signed, Bays gave birth to a baby girl.
Bays’ baby had received the message loud and clear: It was time to leave. And oddly enough, within 14 hours Bays delivered a healthy baby girl.
“She didn’t want to be in contempt of court,” Bays joked at the hospital.
