    It's baby time - wife is due by Friday

    My wife is due to deliver our third and final child by Friday

    I am so psyched right now! The baby has been pretty active and my wife has been miserable. She has been incredible throughout the pregnancy and I bow down to all the mothers out there

    I'm hoping that tonight is the big night. Our other 2 were early so its possible. She thought she was going to go into labor last night, but it was a false alarm. I was so geeked that I hardly slept at all.

    C'mon honey! Let's get this party going tonight! The anticipation is driving me crazy.

    Wife doesn't feel like it. It worked the last 2 times, but this pregnancy has been the roughest. She's trying to rest and I'm just trying not to annoy her.

    Thanks and congrats to you as well. Being an uncle is also exciting (esp if you don't have kids) I have 3 nephews and a niece.

    He'll have to wait in line. My soon-to-be 3 year old already does reps on my bench with a pair of DBs I got for her (1 lb each)

    Thanks guys. Last night was a dud. The wife was up practically all night but no baby appeared
    Oh well. This means that hopefully today/tonight will be the day.

    Our third will be "hypothetically" a boy but I won't believe it until the baby comes out . I have 2 girls and they are incredible.

    My only concerns right now are health-related. I'm hoping this one is as healthy as they are and that my wife comes out of it as good as or better than her other pregnancies.

    Man, its like Christmas when I was a kid. Why can't it get here sooner?!?!

    Man, what a night/day! My wife started feeling really sick and started having mild contractions around 9:30PM. After a few hours, we decided that we needed to get to the hospital. So after a few phone calls and such, we arrived at the hospital and were in our room by 3:50 AM

    This is the amazing part: Upon arrival, my wife was 3 cm dilated with contractions about 6 minutes apart. By 4:35, she was at 7 cm. At 4:49, she was at 7 cm, and at 5:10 she was at 9 cm.

    The nurses placed her in the ready position (with feet in stirrups) and we were just waiting for the doctor to arrive. He came in, and within a minute, my wife was pushing that baby out! After several good pushes, a beautiful, healthy baby boy arrived at 5:18 AM (12/11/04)

    total time was about 90 minutes. My wife was incredible! The baby boy is incredible! Throughout the day, my older kids were excited and totally thrilled.

    It was a great day for my family and I am feeling truly blessed by how smooth it went.
