So, I've been waiting all day long. And it sucks!
My BFF Ann called me last night around 10:30 to see if I thought she could be in labor and should go to the hospital. While she is the nurse, this is her first baby, and since I've had three already, I am the expert in this area. So, I diagnosed her as being in early labor and told her to call her doctor and go to the hospital. And she's been there ever since. And I haven't spoken to her since around 8:00 this morning when she told me she was 2 cm dilated and was about to get a pitocin drip to help her along.
Okay... The wait is OVER! While I was typing, my phone rang, and guess who it was? That's right! It was Ann calling to tell me that she finally had the baby (7:26 pm; 6 lbs. 15 1/2 oz.). I am so happy and relieved.
Welcome to the world little Alison Marie! I'll be coming to see you on Saturday.
