On the morning of May 22, 2009, I started feeling labor pains, they were minor, small, not that big of a deal. I even went to the doctor that day for a checkup. I didn’t even mention that I was feeling anything.
By May 23, I could not understand why this baby wasn’t coming. I had been up all night, had a trip to the hospital, had an awful nurse who told me I wasn’t in labor, she sent me home, & I was asking “WHY ISN’T HE HERE ALREADY?!!!”
At one point that day (between contractions of course) my father turns to me & says, “What day did you & Todd meet again?” Without even needing to think about it, I responded, “May 24, 2006.”
Then it dawned on me, “This baby isn’t going to come until May 24. He was meant to be born on the 3rd anniversary of Todd & I meeting.” That realization changed everything, I knew I was going to have to wait it out.
Two hours & 25 minutes after it becoming the 24th, my precious angel made his appearance into this world after 43 1/2 hours of labor, 39 of it drug free, weighing 7 lbs & 8 oz, 21 inches long.
It was an amazing day & he was absolutely beautiful!
My only question for you is, can you please tell me why they grow up so fast? Because it’s breaking my heart & making it swell with joy all at the same time!
