It doesn't seem possible that 8 years ago today I gave birth to my son. I remember it like it was yesterday. I worked a full day. I came home and felt strange and called my OB. She sent me to the hospital. I was having contractions the whole ride to the hospital. When I got out of the car my water broke in the hospital parking lot (I was so glad my husband had his golf towel in the trunk). You see this would be all normal, if this would have been happening 5 weeks into the future. My son decided he needed to be here 5 weeks early. I got to the parking lot around 5pm and @8:3pm my son was born. He weighed 6lb 8oz! I could only imagine how large he would have been if I would have gone those 5 extra weeks. Actually I don't want to ever imagine that. My son knew he needed to be here...there were 2, yes 2, true KNOTS in the umbilical cord. We were very lucky that night 8 years ago. My OB told us to go buy a lottery ticket. My son was in the NICU for 10 days, but that is another story for another day...a take me back tuesday type of day.
