Ming was in pain, she knew it was labor, but she didn't like it.
Benjamin was grateful that this day had arrived.
Ming was overdue by a simweek and they tried every trick they knew to jumpstart labor-special cookies, accupressure, walking and walking, and of course, woohoo.
It was probably the woohoo that did it. They didn't have to wait long once they decided to go to the hospital.
There Ming safely delivered a son, Joachim.
Zoe and Johan were also ready to welcome their twins. Zoe had opted for a safer operation since one of the twins was in the breech position and refused to move.
They were happy to have a son, Arne,
and a daughter, Signe.
Bill and Emma Carr were awaiting the birth of their third child. Bill was impressed with Emma as she somehow managed to get her old job back with a raise and even a promotion to private investigator instead of lowly gumshoe. She had received a sign-on bonus of $13,000 and with that money they made a down payment on a larger townhouse in the metro. There was a proper yard and larger bedrooms for the children. Thankfully the commute to work was still the same as their new home was a block away from their old home.
