    Yikes! Wifey's almost in labour!

    Update: Now it's the real deal. We're off to the hospital in a few hours - this time it's full-on labour.

    Why am I on here? I'm a die-hard! (And she's resting so I need something to do besides get all anxious!)

    Next post will be the final news!

    Congrats! Hope it goes well!

    Also, not to ruin the mood, but why would you post on here if your wife is going into labor? If she is in labor, get going! Don't be like Gary and check for hospitals that have free wifi so he can take his laptop with him (reference to a chat a few weeks ago).

    Anyways, since I'm assuming everthing is going fine, you should be very happy with the outcome (till the seemingly endless nights of little sleep...).

    Once again, congratulations (as far as we know)!

    Hey, now... I said "almost".

    Even now, 12 hours later, there's little change other than contractions getting stronger. Had to check my morning email before I go to work so I thought I'd pop in here real quick. Nice thing about working so close to home is that I can be home in 5 minutes when the time comes! We're ready for the big moment... it's just baby we're waiting on.

    Thumbs up Re: Yikes! Wifey's almost in labour!

    Just stand back! When things get intense she just might start swinging!
    Congratulations! Hope everything goes well for all of you. And by the way ... don't even think about us baby-sitting! After six kids I don't think I can take even one more baby crying!
    Be sure to post pics!

    Marianne is ROTFL. If she is having contractions, your wife maybe IS in labor not "almost". What do wimmen know about childbirth anyway, this is more traumatic for the father.

    Hang in there. It will be soon and it will all be worth it. Remember to tell her to breathe (or maybe you should breathe).

    All my best and congratulations,

    I can see the headlines, "Wifey has child in the kitchen while hubby was glued to a musical forum"

    Better get going, man Then our kids can have a sing-along. Or rather scream-along. Our precocious singer is almost 3 weeks 2 days...

    Good luck and congrats, Matt

    She had small contractions for a week before our first was born. She's been having small (but increasingly) contractions for the last week as well. It's just getting closer and closer... I'm at work, just waiting for the call so I can dash home. Again - good to be so close to home!

    No need to fear of baby dropping while puttering around the house... hospital is even closer to home than my workplace! (I love town living!)

    And no call yet, so all is well....

    Well!

    Congrats first of all, even before the baby is born!

    Second of all, don't know where you live, but I had the opprtunity to be inside the room when the kid was coming out and I have to say that it is the best experience I've had forever. Make sure you do the same if you can handdle it and if you want and if it is legel in your country.

    Anyways...

    Probably won't get to see the post...

    All the best

    We checked out the hospital and its services weeks ago!

    We may not have big bucks, but we've got good brains in our heads!
