Well THAT was unexpected......

Sooooo Jen started feeling some contractions on Saturday night while we were at the drive in, as the weekend went on they got progressively worse... Last night we were having our labour lesson with our Dula (kinda like a midwife) and they were coming more and more frequently, and she said we better check with the hospital. Soooo went to the hospital, they told us we're having a baby (like 5 weeks early) and because it was premature we couldn't have it there. They transfered Jen to another hospital, we got there, they took a boo and said, no way it'll be a while yet. They gave Jen some morphine because they were concerned about the pain and her getting some sleep. At around 3:00 they told me to go home because it would be a couple of days at the earliest.... I asked when I could come back and they said at 8:00... so 8:00 am comes and I'm trucking on in there, get up to the labour and delivery unit and I hear these moans coming from Jens room, and I kinda stutter "I'm here to see my wife Jen" (praying they switched rooms), to which the reply was "we've been trying to call you get in there she's having a baby NOW".... I get in there 10 minutes later Rebecca is born :) Apparently Jen woke up around 7:00 and the doctor checked her out and told her she was having a kid before 9:00 she panicked saying "no one is hear I CAN'T have a baby" and tried calling me at home but I had already left.. sooo basically an hour and a bit after she woke she had the baby :) Babies 5 pounds 3 ounces, breathing on her own and as far as they can tell very healthy, Jen is sore, tired but otherwise feeling well.... me I'm baked and totally freaking shell shocked and ummmm a happy proud Daddy/Husband ...... :)
