ETA +96 hours.
This baby is NEVER going to arrive.
Erin has endured nothing but Braxton-Hicks contractions, and even they have subsided. The baby is active nightly at 8:00 PM, and tonight in no exception. Erin wants to name it Brock if it’s a boy (Brock, because his digging is very badger-like), though we won’t know the sex until the baby makes it’s entrance.

Wow, a contraction!

We’d better call the midwives to let them know the contractions are pretty strong.

I’m relieved to say that the midwives are on their way. I hope we didn’t call them too soon. Erin is having a hard time. These contractions are almost as bad as the ones she had an hour or so before Briony was born.

Well, Erin’s waters broke, and the midwife is almost here. I hope I don’t have to …

What’s THAT? But why is it purple? Should I pull it? Oh $#!t, I guess it’s a DIY delivery job, after all.

It’s a boy! Why does the bathroom look like a crime scene photo?

Note to self: find an appropriate name within the next couple of years, or when my PTSD has subsided (whichever is sooner).
