I know, I even missed my own blessingway because I didn't want to be waiting a month after my blessingway before baby was born! We had a baby blessing a couple weeks after he was born, instead. I did have some forewarning labor was coming when my water started leaking in the morning. I didn't get cramping until that evening, and labor didn't start till about midnight. I actually did have time to call my mw and even get in the birth pool with him (unlike #2, whose head was born unassisted, although mw arrived to catch the rest of him!)
