Mommy Musings: Hopsital Visit at 1:00 a.m. and Ode to my Husband

I was reminded once again how blessed I am to have my husband in my life. Last night, at around midnight, I felt something weird happening so he made me call the nurse. An hour later, we were instructed to go to the hospital and head straight to labor and delivery. He seemed calm driving us to the hospital but I could tell there was a bit of nervousness there too. After 20 miles, 10 minutes looking for the entrance to the parking lot, and another 15 minutes trying to find labor and delivery, we finally made it.

We thought I was leaking amniotic fluid, but, thankfully, all is well. He stayed with me through the whole thing and rubbed my head so I could relax.I knew he was dead tired, but he tried to stay chipper and awake the whole time. Finally, we got home at about 4:30 a.m. and headed straight to dream land. I got to stay in bed and sleep the whole day and get some much needed rest, but my husband had to go to the office and have business meetings.

I always hear about pregnancy and the mommys, but i don't really hear about the dad during this time. But I realized, it must be a trying period for them as well, having to deal with our volatile tempers due to hormones, our crazy food cravings, etc, etc...

Meeting him and marrying him almost 7 years ago was one of the biggest adventures of my life. And now that we are expecting our first born, the 2 of us are about to embark on a whole new chapter of our lives together.

I know that in between all the laughter and love, there will always be little annoyances, but at the end of the day, I am forever grateful he is the man who will be next to me in the delivery room, trying to calm me down as I scream colorful expletives at him :)
