Today there were contrails and a sickle shaped moon and an eagle in the tree ( I have taken to calling her MY eagle) and a fool on a paddle board on the lake in 15 degree weather.

Tonight it was a mad party at my biller's house. She does this every year for all her customers, mostly midwives. We hang out, drink, eat and talk about stuff. I miss my sister midwives all the time so getting to see them is wonderful.

I got two emails today that I just have to share. Justine is my office manager and her sister is who she is referring to.

I caught the damn baby on the bathroom floor!
She was all over the map with her contractions all day, 18 min apart, 9 min apart, etc.
Then she went and puked her brains out, sat on the toilet and that shit blew up.
Sally was telling us we should probably get in the car to go to the hospital.  It was clear that we weren't going
anywhere and then he was crowning.  
Put me in the rotation ladies!

And then there is this: 

Hello My wife Katy Johnson and I are 9 weeks pregnant and have heard many raving 
reviews about Rainy City Midwifery. We would like to schedule a consolation. 
In the consolation are topics such as insurance coverages covered in the consolation?
Thank you for your time.
Dion Johnson

Haha! Both of those are hysterical and in such different ways.
So. Did you schedule a consolation?
And "that shit blew up." What a great birth story! It ain't all chanting and lavender and roses, is it?

Love it :)

My midwife said 'one puke is worth ten contractions'.
