for my new niece!!!! It's worse than waiting for my own kids LOL! She's due on Monday. Docs wanted to induce my SIL tomorrow, but she wanted to wait until next Tuesday or Wednesday- after her due date. I'm not really sure why they want to induce b/c her other ones weren't, but then again she's 42, so that may be a factor. I hope she can go natural like with her others, though... Pitocin might be quite a shocker after 2 natural deliveries!!! So, I'm hoping she goes really soon...

OK. This is too crazy. I got an e-mail like 1 minute after I wrote this saying that she left for the hospital. Anyone pregnant and want me to write a post for you... it may start your labor lol.

HA!, that's funny. I kind of feel the same way. My sister and her partner are in the processing of adopting throgh the local foster care system and I am so anxious for it to actually happen. She is my only sibling and this will be her first child so it will be my first "real" neice or nephew. I have 6 though my dh but it's different with them. Just can't wait.

LOL... I have 5 nephews and 7 nieces, plus 6 great-nephews and 2 great-nieces, so you wouldn't think it would be that exciting, but it is ;-)

Good gosh, you can't possibly be old enough to have great nieces and nephews. That's crazy!!!!! Although now that I think about it my oldest nephew (dh's) is 21 so I suppose I could too. Okay, now I am depressed......

lol... It's really my dh that's old (7 years older than me) hehe! The old ones are HIS blood-related nieces and nephews lol. My siblings' kids are younger than ours, although the one in labor now is his sister. He's the youngest of 5 and came along 21 years after his oldest sister. Her boys (my nephews) are actually older than I am, so that's how I got great-nieces and nephews ;-)

Aw, congrats! I can't wait to be an aunt! I have 2 on my dh side, but I want my sister to have one! It will be different when she does! Like my own! My neices are 9 (soon to be 10) and the other just turned 17 (yikes)! Just think, after 2 previous pg, she may go really quick! So you may not have to wait too long:-)

I can understand. Both my sister and SIL are pregnant and due in june, but this will be my first real niece/nephew. My sister isnt going to find out and it is killing me ... even though I never found out with any of my 3!!! My SIL isnt finding out either and she has 2 boys already, like I did before Abbey. This will be her first time not finding out, so a nice surprise for all of us! I cant wait!

OMG... I just talked to my MIL to see if she knew that my SIL had gone in to the hospital. She said that my SIL called her right before she went in. Ctxns were close and painful and my BIL couldn't make it home from work in time, so my 17 yo niece (SIL's oldest daughter) drove her in. Now that's scary LOL!!!!

Oh my god, that reminds me of that movie...oh c___p I forget the name of it...where the kid didn't have his license and told the parents he did then totalled the grandfathers car and had to drive his parents to the hospital while his mother was in labor....LOL! Sorry about that. It's what came to my mind. I'd probably sh*t if I was the 17 year old, LOL!

 

sahmof3 - January 12

Well, I didn't have to wait long. She just had the baby... 3 hours after her first ctxn... not bad for a 42 year old :-) lexa... geez...that MUST have been stressful for my niece... they barely made it!... they should make a movie about this one LOL!!!! Anyway, her name's Lydia Ruth. 6 lbs. 12 oz. and 19 1/4". Yay! I can't wait to see her, but they live in Ohio and we're in PA., so it will probably be a few weeks.

That's wonderful!! It sounds like she's a healthy bundle of joy!! I love the name Lydia!

Congrats! And great that everytthing went so quick....don't let word that your posts start labor spread to the 3rd trimester board....we'll be over run! I know how you feel (felt) my sister is due in June and I'm so excited. She is havin ga girl too so since my younest girl is 12 and my last 3 have been boys and it's been an eternity since I've been able to buy frilly pink stuff I've been living vicariously through her....I've been going mad at the stores buying little pink outfits, little pink hats, etc.!!! Congrats again!

I love the name! And she was a good size baby...little peanut. oooh, PA? You are the Lancaster lady? I remember now:-) Congrats again!!!!
