Julie woke me up at 5:30 this morning to say she'd been in labor since 3:00 a.m. She'd taken a shower and was heading out to get some donuts because she was very hungry. Her contractions were 10 minutes apart and he due date 4 days away (November 7th). So we went to King Sooper's, got some donuts and other goodies, and came back home. We both thought today was the day for sure. So Julie went to back to bed to rest up for the big event, and I packed the car. When she woke up 3 hours later, her contractions had died down to about one per hour. It's 5:00 p.m. now and we're heading out to dinner - but the enthusiasm has definitely died down. She talked me into painting the living room today and it doesn't look like we're going to have a birthday today. But you never know, those contractions could kick back in at any moment!
