Our son’s birth story starts weeks before he joined us earth side. When I was 29 weeks pregnant I went into preterm labor. Having a history of preterm labor with our first son, I didn’t expect to make it to my guess date of St. Patrick’s Day. (You can read this mom's first birth story here.) However, I had no idea this little guy would try to make an appearance so early. Due to my early gestation, I was transferred out of the care of my midwives and into the care of Perinatology and eventually the OBGYNs. Things had slowed down until I was 33 weeks pregnant, at which point I went into preterm labor again.
