My best friend is in labor with her 2nd child, she asked me weeks ago if I would be in the delivery room & I'm so excited. I'm a little sad & keep wishing I knew what she was feeling & wishing it were me in her spot. She's 25 with 2 healthy kids, a 2yo boy & a girl about to be born. My dream family..... & I'm 29 with 4 losses & 0 children. I'm super excited to watch her be born though I'm probably gonna cry!!! In about 2hrs we "should" have a new baby girl in the world! :) This is my 1st live delivery!

Yes it was amazing. Took forever to dialate but only 4 pushes & she was out 8.54 lbs 22in. Super curious & hardly cried. When she does tho she has some lungs. Latched on right away. I didn't want to give her up after holding her.

Everything with them is perfect. They have the perfect family. Everything with me is a mess lol. Just have to have faith that there is some plan in motion for me...

That's very exciting...and completely understandable that you would feel like that, and guess what? It's totally okay. It doesn't mean that you care about your friend any less. Hopefully it won't be too long of a night for you two! Good Luck!!

I truly believe everything happens for a reason even when we can't see the reason. It doesn't alway help me when I see friends who are pregnant but I try to remember it. Being a part of your friends delivery is a very special thing.
