It's nearly time!

Sian is at the hospital being induced. Visiting ended at 6.30pm so I was unable to go and see her. Really can't settle to anything at the moment as all I want to do is be with her and it doesn't help knowing that she is over an hour's drive away.
Apparently also if she hasn't got very far by 9.30pm Ian will be sent home!!!! I thought the whole experience of giving birth had become much more mother and baby friendly but it seems not.

Waiting Patiently .........NOT

Sian is due a week today and I was so hoping that her baby would be born during the Christmas holidays. Mine were all early [approx 2 weeks early] and I was born 3 weeks early - so why is Sian still holding onto hers.

All joking aside I am really looking forward to her birth but am thinking she will be at least 10 years old before I finish the baby cardigan I am knitting. Must try and get it done but am really worried about the front border as I have never done that before. May be asking for someone's advice soon
