Almost a grandma

  1. I just spent 4 hrs with my son and his girlfriend at St. V's she is in what they tell us may be the very early stages of labor. Her contractions are definately there but nothing with thinning and dilating so they sent her home. Her poor mom is a nervous wreck she is diabetic, Tof 99.6 feet swelling horribley. I am amazed at how well this girl is doing. She is not screaming like some teens i have seen and she is not demanding her own way she is just way uncomfortable and frustrated. Her mom, My son and hubby and I were all there. They sent her home and before she left she and her mom thanked us for coming to be there. I was really kind of touched. First time I have laid eyes on her mom and I thought she was just wonderful to us. She said that she had felt betrayed by our son at first because she(mom) and my son had worked together and she had grown fond of him and introduced him to her daughter. But she feels he has proven himself to them by sticking by her daughter and making sure all med copays are getting paid that baby and mom has everything they need and he has been there for all dr appt. She feels that he has been there emotionally as well as financially for them. I am still a bit worried and disappointed in him in that they have broken up a couple of times and I am not convinced he is 100% committed to this girl. I must admit even during their breakups he still paid all med bills and took her to dr appt and even shopping. I just worry because they are not head over heals in love with eachother. Though mom and daughter both assured us today that no matter what happens with mom and dad they will never deny him ready access to his child. Anyway thanks for listening. She is home trying to get some rest please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

    Just a quick update. I had just logged off of here a few min ago and was headed to bed when my son called. They are headed to St v's again Her water broke. I would imagine this would be it since they do not want to let her deliver vaginally. Please pray for them.
