Pardon for just a moment a proud grandma. Though this is not MY first, it is my Son’s first baby! My previous 6 were given birth to by my oldest daughter. Below is a picture 2 weeks ago at a fun family gathering. We had actually been playing in the street! My daughter lives on a cul-de-sac so playing in the street is ok!
Eggplant Parmigiana Works!
On Sunday, my son calls and asks me if I know where to get some eggplant parmigiana as he had heard it could make a pregnant woman go into labor. We told them to come on over and we’d head to our local italian restaurant. Son’s GF did not like the eggplant, but she ate 2 good slices of it.
After dinner we went to a local natural attraction. If you are ever in the Atlanta area, go to Stone Mountain. You can climb to the top (we didn’t, lol!), stay and watch a laser show in the evening with 1000′s of other people! We thought it would be a good place for GF to get some walking in! This granite rock is sticking up out of the middle of the ground. There are no other mountains in Altanta. Closest ones are an hour or 2 away. Really awesome if you think about it!
So what did YOU do on Labor Day?
After a great evening, we all went home to sleep in on Labor Day. Except Labor Day really turned out to be LABOR DAY for GF! She woke up at 8:30 am and her water broke. Off to the hospital they go, and we soon follow.
I won’t give the play by play, but let’s just say we aren’t real happy with the way everything played out, pitocin too early, pain meds too early, epideural too early, all were a recipe for a c-section waiting to happen, which is what happened. Poor GF was exhausted, beside herself and hyperventilating. Did I mention GF is only 17?
My Son, who is 19, did a great job and was right there with GF all the time. He even went into the c-section with her. They have been so excited waiting for Baby to arrive, and you have such high expectations of how you hope everything will turn out. Well, the main thing that turned out right in this situation is a very healthy beautiful baby girl. New mommy will have a little longer to recuperate, but her mom and my Son will be there to help her.
