I was in labor. It started at 6:00 am on July 4th,,,,my water broke and my ex hubby took me to the hospital. I was thinking I'd be having a Fourth of July baby! 17 hours later, still no baby. She didn't come until 1:05 am on July 5th. I didn't know if I was going to have a boy or a girl, so it was such a great surprise when I saw my baby girl for the first time! It was the happiest day of my life, and changed EVERYTHING. Being a parent is the best blessing a person can have.
