I became a grandmother on Wednesday April 20th 2011. My step daughter had her first child/son born at 6:30am my time. I got a call to my voicemail around 9:30am that morning and she said that she was a mommy and said that she had a story to tell me but boy I didn’t think that it would be anything like it turned out to be.
My step daughter lives on the East coast and we live here in the central US so were hundreds of miles away so we couldn’t be there with her, wish that we could have been.
She had her son at home by herself with no one there with her. No one!! no meds no doctors, no boyfriend no anyone or anything!!! I couldn’t believe it at first because you don’t hear a story like this too much at least I don’t!
She had contractions all through out the day on Monday. They were about 5 minutes apart and went on for an hour late afternoon on Monday and she went to the hospital and they kept her for an hour and she didn’t dilate so they sent her home!! Pathetic on their part right there!!!! So then she kept having them through out the night and Tuesday but didn’t go to the hospital because she wasn’t sure if they were the braxton hix ones or the for real ones and your scared enough being pg with your first child. So she didn’t go to the hospital….Wednesday morning comes around and her boyfriend leaves for work early in the morning b/c he has to be at work at 5am and she goes and takes a hot shower to help relieve the pain of the contractions since she was yet still having them…..she was in the shower, got out and had a hard one that made her sit down and she barely made it to the bed while her knees buckled bless her heart and then she got up and grabbed the phone and called 911 and within the 2 minutes that it took the ambulance to get to home the baby was delivered by herself and on her chest when they came in!!! I don’t know how the hell she did it and I give her all the kudos in the world because I don’t know that I would have been able to of held it together like she did and had the strength that she did to do what she did!!!
So she went to the hospital and they just let her out today Friday late afternoon. Mommy and son are doing great. I am very happy, excited and proud of her.
I love you Belinda!!

Just my opinion but he shouldn't of done that...it wasn't his money to take, even if they were married he knows that the girls needed things, they are kids, they always are needing something and that was for them to live on and spend as they saw fit not for him to take a chunk of it and go splurge on something for his self.

Today started out chaotic and I have a feeling is going to be ending with lots of chaos still in tacked! Got the kids up and ready for school and on there way, cloudy day out which always makes it hard to stay up and keep going, so right after the kids left I hopped in the shower and enjoy a hot shower to help me feel better and wake up. Felt much better after the shower, might start taking the showers in the morning instead of at night before bed..hmm...came in here and started working around 8 and had my very short interview at 10, got hired, logged in to look around the system and will start working probably tomorrow 5 hours a day with Friday's and Sunday's off.
After getting the job for the company with the very very short interview, I like it that way! LOL...I was getting things ready and situated for my recruiters and the phone rings and it was my step daughter, I had just posted on my Facebook not to much earlier about her and hoping that she's doing good etc and then she calls me We talked for about hour or so and she was telling about things and the signs and symptoms and things and it sounds to me like she will be having that baby anytime now ...so excited for her!! She is due the 21st!! Thursday but I don't know if he will hang on until then I say today or tomorrow at the latest..but of course I could be wrong. Each of my kids were born on the due date..so we will see how she does. Being her first, she could go through a pretty long labor and being that she has already been through braxton hix contractions back at the beginning of March...I don't know I think she will go in today or tomorrow at the latest. She was having pains this morning about once an hour or so and I think that its the signs of her getting ready to have him really really soon!
I can't wait to see pictures of him!! She told me that she would post pictures from the hospital before she leaves...she's in WV and were here in OK so we can't be there but I would be there if I could be!! I am excited and happy for her because at one point we/she didn't think that she was going to be able to have kids and so it was a shock when she found out that she was indeed pregnant!! She's had a rough pregnancy but she's strong and I know that she can do it and hopefully the baby will be a healthy baby and I know that he will be a sweetie and handsome!!
