A good friend of mine is being induced Monday if she doesn't go into labor this weekend. She & her husband (who is SO's best friend) asked me to be in the room when Baby is born. I am thrilled. I've never been on the other side. I never expected them to ask me to be in the room, like, I wanted to see her after & stuff. But I'm just, Idk. lol I'm so happy to be a part of this wonderful part of their life. 

We are going to the pumpkin patch today so maybe all the walking will help things along & she'll go before Monday. I don't want to miss work, because I'm having a hysterectomy in less than 2 weeks & I'll be out for awhile. But I'll totally call in to be there. haha

Lucky! I would love to be in the delivery room with someone I'm close with. I'm sure it will all go well. Be calm and supportive of momma. Good luck to all, enjoy :)

Enjoy I got to be in the room with my step sister and with my best friend. It is very different being on the other side.

I know! We had a rough patch in our relationship around the time of her wedding so she didn't put me in it. lol We've patched things up but I never expected them to ask me to be in the room. But none of the family is flying out until AFTER so it'll be me & her DH. I'm so excited!

haha I couldn't imagine not being supportive. My labor was so easy, I'm just worried that hers will be hard on her. :(

I was my daughter's labor coach when she had her first baby.  It's a thrill.

Awesome! Enjoy it. I was in the room when my sister gave birth to both her boys. The first one, I held her leg and blacked out. The second one, I stayed in the back of the room with her first born.
