Friday the 13th
Today (Thursday) Janine's water broke while I was at work and she was home alone with Liliana. I raced home and we arrived at the birth center about 11:15. Once we knew that she would be admitted we made the obligatory phone calls to friends and family and got settled into our room. Even though her water broke, Janine was still not in labor so at about 4pm the staff began administering Oxytocin to induce labor. We requested an epidural around 10pm as the contractions intensified and Janine's fatigue caught up with her. Now the clock is about to tick over to a new day, Janine is resting blissfully, and we are happy to know that our son will be born in the wee hours of Friday the 13th of November, 2009.
