St. Stephen's Feast Day

...or as it is known in Canada and England - Boxing Day. Today is our big Christmas dinner - with THREE Priests coming. And I am having contractions... typically every 20 minutes. Now and then they stop for an hour or two and then start again. CP - If this baby comes today as you predicted... you are in big trouble!! I have told baby to be - she must be born by 12 or not till after 5 pm!

Will let everyone know what happens!


POST SCRIPT - Contractions stopped shortly after 12 so no baby... she is either very lazy or very obedient. CP - you may breath a sigh of relief as we got through dinner with no surprise arrival. And I got TWO blessings. Now that every one is gone... contractions have started again. Hmmm.... lazy or obedient! Only time will tell.

"lazy or obedient" maybe a bit of both. :) I'm glad your new arrival didn't arrive during dinner, I will however hope that she arrives soon. Good luck.

I know you'd be a little late, but how about having the FIRST BABY OF THE YEAR!!! OOOO! That would be good! Does your hospital/town give a lot of gifts for first babies of the year? Altho I doubt you want to wait till Wednesday to go into labor, and then try to have the baby just after midnight.

I'll keep you in my prayers that the baby comes at just the right time! LOL
