I actually thought I might miss a delivery this morning! There's always that chance that labor will progress quickly and I won't make it before the baby is born, but that is not typically how it goes. This morning gave me a run for my money, though!
My phone rang at 3:40 this morning. Contractions had started around 2 a.m. and they were pretty sure this was it. Mom was planning to labor at home for awhile, but while I was gathering up my things, I got a call saying that she couldn't stay home any longer and they were headed to the hospital. I met them at the hospital at 4:30 and she was 8 to 9 cms!
At 7:41 this morning, a sweet new soul joined our world. Another surprise baby (yay!) and beautiful new family of three is born.
Congratulations Mommy and Daddy!
