Day 2 and Parents Gone Wild

OK, so maybe we didn't go all that wild, but we did go see a movie tonight. On a school night of all nights!

We saw What to Expect When You're Expecting, and while I won't say it's the best movie ever, we found it fairly entertaining. It was mostly about pregnancy and less about parenting and brought back some funny memories for me of that nine plus months and labor and delivery.

One of the things I was waxing nostalgic about was our drive to the hospital while I was in labor. It was around midnight, with few cars on the road, and Mr. G was doing everything he could to keep my mind off of my contractions which were less than 5 minutes apart. Radio, conversation, anything he could think of. He was trying so hard, bless his heart. Finally I said (oh so very sweetly, no doubt), "Can we just be quiet? No noise or talking?"

If you've been there breathing through contractions, you know how it is trying to focus and get in the zone. Anything to deal. We still laugh about that drive.

Us, pre-baby, back who knows when.


  1. Is it weird that I fantasize about taking a car ride like that to the hospital? I was induced with T b/c my doctor was going out of town and I was 3-4 cm dilated, but I kind of hope I get to go into labor on my own at some point!

    1. I don't think that's weird at all, but maybe I am weird. :) As a very much Type A personality, my biggest wish was for an induction or scheduled c-section that I could put on my calendar. I got just the opposite, and I wouldn't change a single thing about it. Yay for forced spontaneity!
