Home at last! The baby arrived at 11pm on Monday, May 8th.
I will put an official post up later, but for now, let me just say on behalf of my wife, myself, and baby Isaac, thank you for all your prayers.
Nothing. Nada. No va. We did take a nice walk last night, though.
Keep praying for us, that the baby would come soon, and that we would have patience until then.
The antibiotics seem to be working, but we still have a bad cough. Not a whole lot else for the update. Our next OB appt. is tomorrow, and we were hoping not to keep it.
Well, it's official: the Mrs. is sick. Doc gave her a zPac, and she is resting at the moment. :(
Dad & kids will probably have to go without her to the work picnic tonite.
Nothing happening. How much of nothing? Mrs. G & I went to see MI:III last night at the late movie. I'm getting too old for that kind of stuff.
Back home from the hospital. Lots of contractions, but no progress. :(
On the plus side, my mom & grandma are flying in from Phoenix later tonite, and we're excited about that.
We're having a few contractions, and given where we are, the doctor's office said come on in to the hospital. If we're far enough, they may continue the process. Or, we may just come home.
We had a lovely morning together while the kids were at Community Bible Study. We got some Raspberry tea for Mrs. Gummby--the latest suggestion for labor instigation. She's had a cup, and is now resting peacefully. In fact, a little afternoon nap sounds good. Don't hate me for that--you wouldn't want to be me a week from now.
Relatively quiet night. No regular contractions. Despite my best efforts to get her to eat some spicy Mexican food, it was a no go. I figure one more night, maybe two, and she'll be willing to try anything. Mmm--chicken fajita nachos, here I come!
After I posted the false alarm, the contractions started again. We got to about 7 minutes apart, and I told Frank & Carla online we were on our way (we were actually on the phone with the doctor at that point). But the contractions slowed down, and finally stopped about
Sorry, false alarm. No baby.
The doc did say he expected him to come sometime this week, though, so stay tuned.
Moving To Yellow Alert
Yes, it may be time for baby.
If you don't see me post for the next couple of days, you'll know why.
