    This morning, my DIL & DS went to hospital for her to be induced. Well, nothing is happening! DS has me on stand-by; my DH wants just to go, but I'm ok with waiting here. Like I told him, we're not the parents of the mother to be, but the inlaws. All I've done all day is play on this computer. Something better happen soon.
    Oh, this is our 8th grandchild and it's just as exciting as the first one.

    Oh I know the feeling! Only it was my daughter in labor all evening with me waiting up all night by myself. I finally couldn't take it anymore and drove to Cleveland on the snowy roads on New Year's Day only to wait five minutes before my first grandchild was born! (my husband had no problems sleeping until I woke him up)

    Congratulations on your new grandchild...soon.

    Lynn haven't you heard that old saying? "good things come to those who wait?" I hope she has a smooth delivery. Sometimes the baby just isn't ready to let go of the securtity inside Mommy..Do they know what the baby is going to be?
    It will probably wait and show up in the middle of the night just to be ornery *L* congrats on #8...crafty_linda_b

    Yes, I agree with all the comments. Well, if they had asked me, I would have advised to wait at least a week after due day, but I wasn't asked, lol.
    My DS did just text; the contractions are getting a little stronger; so at least, it's moving along.
    Linda, it's another boy. That will make 5 grandsons and 3 granddaughters.
    The name picked out is Joshua Allen. Middle name is my son's middle name; Joseph Allen. I couldn't have asked for a better DIL than Laurie; he waited a long time to get married, but made a good choice.

    Induced labor takes longer to get started because the body isn't ready. But once labor actually starts, then it won't take long. Prayers that everything goes well. I've been in your shoes and hate the waiting too (9 grandkids)

    Happened to see the old Steve Martin movie last night where is daughter was pregnant and HIS wife and as it turned out they both delivered the same day at the same hospital. If you haven't seen it you'll probably get some laughs. The daughter kept having false alarms........hope they all do o.k.

    Well, I am sure it is even longer for your DIL and DS (laughter). All will be well and going to the hospital might just offer some support and laughter. Give it a thought. If you have a laptop you can take it with you!! Keep us posted.

    No, we're not welcoming little Josh yet. And I can't go to hospital until my DS calls. but I'm ok with the waiting at home. I know when he needs our support, he'll call.
    yes, I love the name Allen. I names this son after his dad, but my DH wouldn't let me use his 1st name, so picked his 2nd name. I think it's neat that this son picked his middle name for his own son.

    Update on baby: Laurie's doctor came back and removed the drip. Tonight, they'll give her something to "speed" her along, also a sleeping pill. Then at 5 am, they'll start checking her again. When doctor arrives, he'll break her water. Then, hopefully, I'll have good news.
