Uncanny

In early February (the 9th, I think) I spoke on the phone with one of those long-lost friends I was mentioning yesterday. She was nine months pregnant with her third child and had always had early babies. This one was much later than she expected. We talked and caught up and had a great conversation. I assured her I would pray for baby to come soon. The next morning she woke up in labor and Max was born soon afterwards.

On Monday night, I spoke on the phone with another long-lost friend. She was nine months pregnant with her third child and had always had early babies. This one was much later than she expected. We talked and caught up and had a great conversation. I assured her I would pray for baby to come soon. The next morning she woke up in labor and Abigail has either been born or is coming soon (I haven't heard more than that they went to the hospital yesterday).

So, what do you think? Is it my prayers that cause this, or, more likely, my rambling phone conversations which are enjoyable but tiring and perhaps inspire some of the relaxation needed to begin labor? I'm not sure it is either one, actually, but I still think it is pretty ironic that this has happened twice in one year.

If you're nine months pregnant, expecting your third, and have always had early babies, call me! You never know! :)

Meanwhile, pray for Baby Abigail and Mom, please! SO exciting!!!

You better believe I will email you for your phone number when the time comes. ;-) #3 is due December 9. The last two have been 1.5 and 2 weeks early respectively. I guess there are no guarantees. Loving the blog.
