Yes, indeed! There was a lot of false labor leading up to delivery but once he decided it was time, it went fast. The nurses called it a "drive-by delivery" as it was only 15 minutes from the time he was officially admitted to when he was born. :laugh: They'd been in the hospital maybe 25 minutes total. My daughter was in labor but thought she still had plenty of time so went to work and stayed there until 7 PM, drove the 45 minutes back to her house and her water broke just as she was turning onto her street. A bit of a panic situation when she got here getting her husband and their hospital bags but fortunately the hospital is only about 10 minutes away. He was born at 8:25 PM. Had she stayed much longer at work, she would have been having the baby by the side of the road!
I knew you had a new grandson, but I hadn't read this. What a nice delivery!!! You can't ask for better. Pitocin contractions are hellish - natural contractions are not easy but you don't want to die from them. How is everyone doing now - a little over a month later? Anyone getting any sleep?

He's been a good sleeper and eater. By their home scales, he's already 13 lbs!!! He's been sleeping 4-5 hour stretches at night for a while now so not too bad and goes right back to sleep after diaper change and feeding so can't complain. He's smiling (for real) now and has dimples---just adorable (not that I'm prejudiced, of course :) ).
