Ok I’ve never been so close to missing a birth as I was for this one!  Ali is a first time mom and so we thought she’d labor for a long time.  I went to the hospital to take a few detail shots and chatted for a few minutes.  At that time she was 6 cm and 80 effaced.  But she hadn’t progressed in the past four or five hours.  So I left thinking I’d get a call in a couple of hours while we were in the movie.  Well less than an hour later I got a call saying “We need you now!” I won’t tell you how fast I drove there but I’ll just tell you it was well over the speed limit!  I got there and baby Todd was born within like 10 minutes!  Everyone there was surprised by how quickly she progressed.  She did amazing!  I left with just enough time to get to the movie!
