just want to mention that there are some references to the Jewish holiday on which my daughter was born. Holiday is called shmini atzeres. Yom tov = holiday. There are some things we do differently on a holiday, such as not driving (unless there is a need e.g. a birth!), no phones, etc.
What a great story! So cool that you were so far along when you got there are you only 'thought you might be in labor'! Sounds like a great experience, and that you are enjoying your new daughter! Thanks for letting us know- yay, another 'Nov.' baby!
