My wife told me she was in labor, and when I called the hospital they asked how far apart her pains were.
She told me they were fifteen minutes apart, and we were told to stay home and relax.
Until the pains were five minutes apart, she could stay home. The nurse said we had hours before she had to go to the hospital. In the meantime, it began to snow. I worried about getting to the hospital on time if it continued snowing and we waited much longer. My wife reminded me of what the doctor and nurse said and told me to relax. We sat in front of the fireplace and tried relaxing, but her pains, although still fifteen minutes apart, were getting harder. She was crying with every pain. I took her to the car, even though she was arguing about it, and we headed to the hospital. We got about three miles from home, and we couldn’t go any further. The police were stopping all cars because of an accident involving an ambulance and a truck. The heater was working to keep us warm, but it wouldn’t be for long. We had to turn the car off while sitting in the traffic jam. The HVAC system didn’t give off heat when the car wasn’t running. Five minutes later, my wife screamed and said the baby was coming. How did fifteen minutes turn into the baby coming? We talked to a police officer walking around and he brought someone back from the ambulance. The ambulance had a broken tie rod, but the heat was on, and they could handle delivering a baby. Five minutes later, our baby boy was born.
