Wife going into labor!

Post by Marty [Mori Chu] » Thu Feb 15, 2018 5:06 pm

Hi gang, wanted to let y'all know that my wife Mariana is going into labor for our baby right now. We'll have our first child, our daughter Eve, within a day or two! Pretty exciting. We got to the hospital recently and are getting all set up. Everything looks healthy and normal so far, so now we wait. Woohoo! I'll post a couple photos when I can.

On the Eve of her delivery, congrats!

Really happy for you three. One of the defining moments of my life was seeing my daughter look up directly into my eyes for the first time 10 seconds after she was born. It is a truly amazing, humbling, frightening, exhilarating experience.

Congratultions and best wishes. Parenthood is the hardest, best job you'll ever love.

Thanks, all. Still no baby yet, but she's dilated about 5 cm, so things are moving along. Hopefully tonight (Fri) in the wee hours, else Sat sometime we'll get to meet our little girl!

Still waiting. Looooooong labor process. She's dilated to about 6cm but needs to get to 10cm. They are taking their time with it because they don't want to have to do a C-section unless absolutely necessary. It's taking longer because they have her on magnesium due to some blood pressure issues. So far baby is healthy. We expect that maybe today will be the day. Fingers crossed!

Either way, you'll be fine. My first was a very similar situation. Long labor but finally we had a C section. Hang in there!
