That last post was on April 26 at 1:40 or something. I did spend most of the day in bed - as ordered. Then instead of making dinner, we decided to go to Olive Garden. Phil's parents were in town helping us do some updating on our home and they had some gift cards and we just got an Olive Garden so off we went. We had a nice, slow meal and then went next door to Target to look at some baby stuff.

When we returned home I, somewhat begrudgingly, returned to my "down" postion as the four of us started a DVD. About 30 minutes into The Lake House, I felt a warm gush of liquid. I announced (somewhat giddily and somewhat frightened) that I thought my water had just broken. It had! One month - to the day - ahead of my due date!

A mere nineteen hours later our beautiful daughter was born. Although 4 weeks and a day early she was born a healthy 7 pounds, 1 ounce. (I'm so glad I didn't go full term - she would have been HUGE!).

So that is our exciting surprise.
