SIL is currently in labour. Was 5cms at midday! I reckon delivery at 6.30pm - what do you think?

Humour me! I'm so excited grin

How exciting! I'd say you were about on target with that guess! Is it her 1st? If so I'm going to guess 7.15pm grin
Good luck

McDreamy Wed 17-Jun-09 13:35:53

Yes it's her first. Oooh I can't concentrate on anything!!!!!!

fruitshootsandheaves Wed 17-Jun-09 13:36:33

It's all going to go really quick now so I'm going for 3:33pm grin

ByThePowerOfGreyskull Wed 17-Jun-09 13:37:01

Ohh I am going to come in a bit earlier than that, I reckon before 6pm

Good luck.. try to relax and let it happen, don't use up all your adrenalin at once smile

7.23 pm

(McD is telling the truth, she can't concentrate on anything, but at least she has the excuse of becoming an aunty, I don't have any excuse)

McDreamy Wed 17-Jun-09 15:38:26

grin - no news yet!

(You left your biscuits Benny!!!! mmmmm)

BennyAndJoon Wed 17-Jun-09 16:05:20

I left the biscuits deliberately as a thank you to AuntyDreamy smile

McDreamy Wed 17-Jun-09 16:20:56

Thank you smile x

ByThePowerOfGreyskull Wed 17-Jun-09 16:39:32

OOh I hope she is doing well, How are you coping McDreamy?

McDreamy Wed 17-Jun-09 17:33:31

Very agitated, excited, preoccupied. Talking to my mum on the computer who is the same.grin

TBH we are more concerned about my brother (SIL is very capable and will be fine I am sure wink) who is a bit, no very, hospital phobic!!! He's wasn't sure he was going to be able to be present but so far he's hung in there with her.

ByThePowerOfGreyskull Wed 17-Jun-09 17:40:17

good on him! sounds like he is being able to focus more on his wife than his phobia..

Hope is all goes well, am going out for the evening but will check in when I get back... I am sure she will have had the baby by the time I get back smile

McDreamy Wed 17-Jun-09 17:41:00

I will let you, have a nice evening!

EccentricaGallumbits Wed 17-Jun-09 17:42:51

I'm going to go for 7.05.

BennyAndJoon Wed 17-Jun-09 19:11:01


<<knits booties>>

Paolosgirl Wed 17-Jun-09 19:13:18

Could you ask her to hurry up as I'm going out soon and would like some news before I go grin

Hope all is going well....

MrsHappy Wed 17-Jun-09 19:24:00

I reckon she's already had it but that they are too overwhelmed to make phone calls.
Congratulations Auntie McD.

McDreamy Wed 17-Jun-09 19:36:11

no not yet, seems baby should be born within the next hour!!! Oh god I could pee my pants! AND my brother is still with her I am amazed and sooooooo proud! I would have bet money he couldn't do it! smile

Thank you for sharing my excitement grin

BennyAndJoon Wed 17-Jun-09 21:10:00

Go McBro!

(please don't pee your pants though)

It is an amazing thing when your sibling becomes a parent smile

How is DH coping with your peeing-panted-ness ? wink

McDreamy Wed 17-Jun-09 21:51:41

I haven't shared that information with him yet wink

Still no baby or no phone call!

As I was writing the phone rang!

Baby boy James 7lb 4oz born just before 9pm and he stayed! I can't believe my brother stayed. He said he couldn't leave and it was amazing! I am so proud of them both!

Yay McDreamy is an Auntie!
