Just got THE call!

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Just got THE call!
By Ginny~moderator on Saturday, November 29, 2008 - 10:17 am:

My son just called - her water broke and my dil is on the way to the hospital. They've been keeping the baby's name secret but my granddaughter doesn't keep secrets well - they will name him Blake. I'll keep everyone posted.

When she saw the doctor a week ago Friday, the ultrasound showed the baby weighted 7 pounds 11 ounces, so I am pleased that he is coming a few weeks before his due date, even if his due date was my birthday. She saw the doctor again yesterday, so I am assuming everything is just fine.

That's so exciting! Please keep us posted!

How exciting!

By Mrsheidi on Saturday, November 29, 2008 - 12:26 pm:

Yeah!!! If he's half as cute as their older one, look out! :)

By Ginny~moderator on Saturday, November 29, 2008 - 12:39 pm:

Yes, Heidi, and if he's half as bright as his big sister (or his father and uncles) they'll really have to look out.

By Vicki on Saturday, November 29, 2008 - 01:46 pm:

How exciting! Are you keeping your granddaughter for them?

By Cat on Saturday, November 29, 2008 - 02:15 pm:

I'll be looking for a cyber-announcement soon! :)

By Bobbie~moderatr on Saturday, November 29, 2008 - 04:08 pm:

Great news.. Keep us posted.

By Missbookworm on Saturday, November 29, 2008 - 04:17 pm:

How exciting!! :)

By Ginny~moderator on Saturday, November 29, 2008 - 05:43 pm:

Vicki, she's with her Mom-Mom, her other grandmother, who lives only about 15 miles away, and who has set up her guest bedroom specifically for Brooke.

By Karen~admin on Saturday, November 29, 2008 - 05:53 pm:

Can't wait for the official birth announcement here! Woo Hoo!!! :)

By Pamt on Saturday, November 29, 2008 - 06:52 pm:

Waiting to hear...

By Yjja123 on Saturday, November 29, 2008 - 07:26 pm:

Great news. Can't wait to hear the announcement!

By Missymelissy on Saturday, November 29, 2008 - 11:22 pm:

Can't wait to hear

By Ginny~moderator on Sunday, November 30, 2008 - 01:40 am:

YES!!! I woke up about 10 minutes ago, and was just checking my cell phone to see if there were any text messages when it RANG, and my son said "Hi Mom, say hello to Blake". My dear dil is fine, tired, of course, but I could hear her talking in the background. Blake hadn't been weighed yet when my son called me, but he estimates around 8 pounds.

Now, back to sleep.

By Jackie on Sunday, November 30, 2008 - 05:55 am:

Congratulations to your new grandson :)

By Vicki on Sunday, November 30, 2008 - 07:33 am:

Awww, congratulations!

By Missymelissy on Sunday, November 30, 2008 - 08:08 am:

CONGRATULATIONS!! :)

By Cat on Sunday, November 30, 2008 - 08:49 am:

YEAH!!! Congratulations to all of you and Welcome to the world, Little Blake!!! :)

By Bobbie~moderatr on Sunday, November 30, 2008 - 09:04 am:

Happy Birthday Blake!! Congratulations to all.

By Karen~admin on Sunday, November 30, 2008 - 09:47 am:

Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How exciting!!!!!!! Can't wait to see pics of Blake now! :) :)

By Debbie on Sunday, November 30, 2008 - 09:49 am:

Congrats!!! I am glad to hear that everyone is doing so well!

By Dawnk777 on Sunday, November 30, 2008 - 11:28 am:

Congrats to your new grandson. I'm glad everyone is doing well. Hopefully, they'll send you a picture and we all can see him, then!

By Marcia on Sunday, November 30, 2008 - 12:14 pm:

Congratulations!

By Vicki on Sunday, November 30, 2008 - 01:01 pm:

Have you been to see him yet? I keep looking for some photos!

By Ginny~moderator on Sunday, November 30, 2008 - 01:13 pm:

Photos tomorrow, I'm told. No, I haven't seen him yet. My dil and son want alone time with their daughter and new son, time for her to recover from about 13 hours of labor. I will visit next weekend, when everyone has had a chance to catch up on rest and they have some sense of his sleeping patterns. But my son promised to email some photos late tonight or first thing in the morning.

I was really surprised, when I called a little while ago, that my granddaughter is in the hospital room - I think they have rooming-in - with her parents and her brother. She is excited and very happy, burbling about her baby brother.

By Annie2 on Sunday, November 30, 2008 - 01:31 pm:

Congratulations!!!! :)

By Dana on Sunday, November 30, 2008 - 01:35 pm:

Congratulations, Ginny!

It is so nice to hear that your kids want to take the time to be a new family together before the rush of visitors start.

I was given "how could you do this to me?" look and "you should feel awful" guilt trip look when I told someone I wanted to have DD see the new baby first. I was only given a few minutes alone, but at least we did get that.

Hats off to you for being the MIL who listens! :)

Looking forward to photos.

By Joy~bundles on Sunday, November 30, 2008 - 02:58 pm:

Congratulations, Ginny!!! Wonderful news!! :)

By Dramamamma on Sunday, November 30, 2008 - 09:41 pm:

Congratulations Ginny!

I think it's wonderful that they want the time alone, I did that this time with no visitors in the hospital and it made my time there so much better. Those first couple of days can be overwhelming and it was so nice to be able to get used to the new addition and have time for him and his brother without a whole bunch of added people.

By Rayelle on Sunday, November 30, 2008 - 09:45 pm:

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!! What happy news!!!! :):):)

By Bobbie~moderatr on Monday, December 1, 2008 - 10:23 am:

Ginny, it is possible that she is staying at the hospital. My pastors wife and several of my sisters friends have done this recently, at two different hospitals. They gave birth, had the older sibling/s brought in and they stayed at the hospital until they were discharged.

12 years ago that wasn't an option. I might have gotten to see my kids an hour a day, for the four days I was in the hospital. I made the doctor release me early because my kids missed me so bad, and I missed them terrible too. Probably wasn't the best decision but I felt I didn't have any other choice. If they could have roomed in with me, I likely wouldn't have had that extra stress/rush.

By Breann on Monday, December 1, 2008 - 10:50 am:

Congratulations!!!! How exciting! I can't wait to see the pictures. Newborn babies are so beautiful and special. What a perfect holiday gift!

By Melanie on Monday, December 1, 2008 - 04:44 pm:

Congratulations!!!!

By Wandilu on Monday, December 1, 2008 - 11:07 pm:

CONGRATULATIONS !!

By Tunnia on Tuesday, December 2, 2008 - 10:03 am:

Congratulations on the birth of your grandson!

By Colette on Tuesday, December 2, 2008 - 10:14 am:

Congratulations Ginny!

By Crystal915 on Tuesday, December 2, 2008 - 09:19 pm:

CONGRATS!!!!
