Default How Surreal Is This?

My daughter is pregnant and was induced last night 2 weeks early.
She is in Essex UK. I am in Sydney.
Her sister (my other daughter) is also pregnant at same time and same stage. She was supposed to look after her step daughter when she went into labour so that her partner could be with her. Other daughter is sick so cant do it. Her partner has had to leave the hospital to look after the child.
Soooooooo, i have been up most of the night supporting my daughter in the delivery suite via SMS text messages!!!
This is all so surreal. Things are not going as fast as we thought. Although she is getting strong contractions and pain, she still isnt dilated yet.

I hate being here, and feel so impotent sitting here with just a mobile phone to help out!

Thanks for the karma Britvic.

Yes it is tuff at times like this. I think its the guilt more than anything. I guess it doesnt matter how old your child are (shes 25) you still feel like you should be there when they need you.

Saying that, she just messaged back saying the pethadine is kicking in and she feels drunk..LOL So she cant type!! Bless her.

Well, I am pleased to announce i have a gorgeous new grandaughter!! weighed in at 7lb 4oz
Mum and bub doing fine. She doesnt have a name yet.
She does have a small problem with one foot but according to the doc it usually rectifies itself or just requires a minor operation down the track.

Timing was excellent. She was born 10 mins before i left for work thats why i didnt post earlier.

I am so proud i feel my chest is going to burst. I just cant wait to meet her.

Now i am waiting for my other daughter to give birth. I'm not sure i can stand all this excitement!! Boy oh boy am i gonna be busy when i get back to UK. Cant wait
