so we all know that my baby is coming from my best friend. well, he lives 2 hours away and probably won't make it down for the birth. so our best friend steve, whom i've known for 12 years and introduced us, and also lives ten minutes from me, agreed to come to the hospital with me. i've never been in the delivery room without the father, and i don't want to be, but steve and i are so close and he was honoured by my invitation. he doesn't have to watch if he doesn't want to, but he can be there to hold my hand and talk to me.
i really feel for single moms who have to give birth without the support of the dad. it's kind of scary to me... my mom is also always in the delivery room, and my best girlfriend (well, my only girlfriend, known her since i was six-- i get along with men way better than women, because i'm not very feminine.) was there when my daughter was born. this will be so great. i am just so relieved.

I'm happy that you have found someone who is willing to help support you in delivering your baby. I'm sorry that Brandon (sorry if I have that wrong!) probably won't be able to make it to the hospital. I can't imagine how hard it would be to go through that without the father. But at least you'll have a great team helping you out!

i was kind of scared to ask him, you know, as a woman, to a guy who doesn't have kids. but it was such a relief, and i was so sure he would say yes. he said it would be exciting. and since my labours are so short, he could just leave work and then go right back if it was in the middle of the night, because he works 5pm-4:30 am.

That is great that you have a good friend to be there in place of him. With my daughter my husband was the only other person with me, we didn't even call anyone to let them know I was in labor until after she was born. it would be hard not having the father there.
