With little to do but wait once their surrogate's water broke, Grant entered what his husband lovingly refers to as his "annoying phase."
It was 3:09am on February 7th when my phone rang. This, in and of itself, was strange as my phone is always on silent. But, for some reason, earlier that night I decided that I needed to change my phone settings to make sure the phone rang just in case our surrogate called. It was a week before our scheduled C-section and our doctor gave us no reason to think we would be welcoming our baby any earlier than the previously scheduled date.
"I think my water broke. No wait, it definitely broke," our surrogate tells me.
"Your water broke?" I replied helpfully. "Should we head to the hospital?"
"Um, yeah. Get in the car and drive. I'll meet you at the hospital."
