SIL is in labour!

I hope you all don't mind me posting this here but DH called me earlier this morning to tell me that his SIL is officially in the hospital. She had to be induced (she's a week overdue as of yesterday) but the cervidil (I think?) is starting to work and she's on her way. A new baby nephew for DH and I should be here either today or tomorrow. It's the first grandson for his parents so they are all excited.

I'm a little jealous but trying to be supporting/excited as well. It's hard so I'm doing things to distract me today. I just made a ton of jam and I'm on to canning some salsa shortly. Smile

I can totally relate to how you are feeling. My husband's niece is due in a few weeks - I was supposed to be due 4 weeks after her... so hard to be supportive when you are feeling/thinking why not me.

Well, as of 2AM today I have a new nephew! I saw MILs post on FB and I'm sure they tried to call my DH but he always forgets his cell in places. I wrote a "congrats" note to DH as I had to to work today. I hope he understands what for!

I'm good actually. A little excited that we will get to spend a week visiting with them in September.

I think DH is taking it a little harder than I am though, which surprised me. I called him after he woke up yesterday and got the news, and he was all "I'm getting old" and "when are we going to have one?" (which is what all his family is asking him now)

I think this might prompt him to want to try a little harder now, so we shall see.
