My O/B's nurse made sure I knew to call Labor & Delivery before leaving the house this morning, and lo and behold, they are "super busy". So we're still at home (at 8 am). The very nice L & D nurse I spoke with told me to call back at 9:30 or 10, and they'd "probably" have me come in at 11---my only comfort is that my doctor told me to keep my scheduled appointment with her today at 9:45 so they could basically force the hospital's hand and send me straight over afterwards with instructions to go to it. I think. I hope. At this rate, I'm starting to think tomorrow may be the new Hoffman birthday, but if so, there are actually far more interesting people sharing it, like Claude Monet, Jawarhalal Nehru, Mamie Eisenhower, Aaron Copland, Louise Brooks, William Steig, Prince Charles, Condoleezza Rice...November 13 only has Whoopi Goldberg and St Augustine.
Still, at this rate, who knows? I'm hopeful it's not going to drag out for days, but being a veteran parent, I at least accept the fact that the only guarantee is that there are no guarantees!
We'll keep everyone posted as we ourselves are kept posted...thanks again for all the good wishes.
