I love how, in the end, everything fell into place exactly as it was supposed to. Here’s to those winter babies!

I love that song too and was so excited when it was played during the OC, I remember tears welling up then and felt them again now (naturally I’m also 37 weeks along myself). I hope I can capture the simple majesty of a baby arriving for myself, with all of the fuss or quiet that accompanies it. Thanks for the inspiration to write my own baby’s story — whatever it turns out to be!

I found your website because of them when I was newly pregnant… I laughed, I cried, and I sent the link to every female I know… and a few males too :)
I can’t wait for the next 5 weeks (give or take) until my daughter is here. I hope that once my brain is back to normal (does it ever go back to normal?) that I can write such a lovely story.

Both due in January in Wisconsin also came along with worrying about the weather, so I can completely relate. The weather cooperated on both occasions (well, not so much on the drive home with my first, but we made it). I remember the DC blizzards of 2010 very well, my baby was only 5 weeks old. With my own worries so fresh in my mind at the time, I do remember wondering what pregnant women in DC would do if they went into labor. I’m glad it worked out for you!

Have you ever read a picture book called, On The Day You Were Born? For some reason, your story makes me think of that book. It feels like the whole world was spinning (and snowing) and waiting just for little G to arrive–at exactly the right time.

I definitely remember the blizzard in Feb. 2010 and the ones in Dec. 2009! Gotta love snow on the East coast!

While you were birthing your babe we were running through the wet streets of Vancouver, our children in tow, racing to see Wayne light the outside cauldron. Bless you & your family & thanks for sharing your story.
