hooray, Paula! congratulations!
EA77- so feeling your emotional pain tonight. My father had a heart attack today, and while he was given speedy treatment and expected to fully recover, this is his 2nd in about 5 years, and it reminds me that he's aging and how much I really want him to be around for my kids. peace to you and your family!

HAHA crafty, your husband's reaction just caused a laugh that almost broke MY water!  I love how we all await our birth stories, then we have them, and how infrequently they resemble our imaginings. So happy for you that you can tell yours...and at term, not postdates! Hooray!
