Waiting For Baby....

Fifteen years ago today, I was in the hospital and had been for days, on bed rest and only allowed up for a minute or two, puffy with pre-eclampsia, blood pressure sky rocketing, the worst migraine in my life, had that horrible amnio needle stuck in my stomach to test if the baby's lungs were good, the first attempt at induction failed, missing our son who was staying with grandmas and beyond ready to meet this unknown little baby who was causing a minor ruckus......

Fifteen years ago today, I was all out exhausted, miserable and desperate for a shower.......

And I'd do it again and again and again without hesitation.  All of it was worth doing for what awaited us on July 11, 1997 and every day since!


  1. Aww, sweet. Childbirth is not called LABOR for nothing. It is such hard work! Enjoy your youngin'!

  2. Happy birthday to the mow fifteen year old,


  3. How true! No matter how horrific child birth is we always seem to go back and it is always worth it!
