I think that this photo says it all.
Today is the baby’s due date.Â We don’t mind that she came early, really.Â About 1 1/2 weeks ago at the doctor appointment my wife was told that there wasn’t much progress and that the baby wouldn’t be born till her due date or maybe not until October.Â My poor wife was crushed!Â She has been so uncomfortable and has been working so hard to prepare for the baby.Â This was some bad news.
Well, the Sunday following that appointment she started having some major contractions.Â They were timed close enough that she woke me up and told me to get ready to go.Â We got ready, and she took a shower and they all stopped.Â Again, she was crushed.
She went to the doctor on Monday and they told her the same thing as last time.Â No real changes, the baby was on track for the due date and maybe even later.Â CRUSHED!!!!
I noticed late Tuesday afternoon that she wasÂ in a really good mood.Â I asked her what was going on and she said with a grin, “I’m having contractions!”Â Odd that so much pain and discomfort can make someone so happy.Â We put the kids to bed at 8:00 PM, called over a friend, went to the hospital and the baby came just before midnight.Â 😀
