Becca insisted upon arriving in this world in her own time. She’s as determined now as she was then. I was 5 days overdue when she was born, but had been to the hospital 3 times, 3 days in a row, thinking I was in labor. But NOOOOOOO. When we got home the 3rd time, my doctor called to schedule an induction for two days later. She said, and I quote, “Usually, when I schedule an induction, the baby decides to come all on its own.” An hour later, real labor started. I went in to the hospital the next morning, since the real labor had not progressed, but just was annoying all night long. When I walked into the hospital, the nurse, who had seen me for the past 3 mornings, took pity on me, checked me in, called the doctor, and got the induction started right then and there. My poor body took a while to kick in and Becca wasn’t born until 45 minutes after that nurse left. She wasn’t happy with me the next morning when she came to work. ;) We went home from the hospital 15 minutes before my originally scheduled induction. Hooray! And we were so thankful and happy to bring our 3rd baby girl home. We love you, Becca and Happy Birthday!
Happy Birthday also to my Grandma and to my dear friend TN! Hope you have a great day!
