Any minute now

Our first weekend back was great and it was back to the hospital to have the check up like we were told part of me didn’t fancy going back but it was the right thing to do and the safest place to be so we went back to the maternity ward and I assumed my sleeping spot in the waiting room. Which after being in there so much everyone was getting used to seeing a large unconscious guy slumped in the corner. Kelly was being monitored for any contractions which by now was pretty normal for us, this usually took about an hour so when Kelly woke me three hours later I was a little confused why she had taken so long and I was a happy that I still had my wallet. The doctors had asked Kelly to come get me as they needed to talk to us both.. all I could think is “what now” We sat down and received a bit of news we wasn’t expecting at all we were told in a matter hours the baby would be here! After my three hour nap it was the fastest I’ve ever woken up in my life. Like a big slap right round the face. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing even after everything that had happened it still felt so surreal. I was so excited so was Kelly but I could tell she was more than a little nervous and who could blame her knowing what she was about to go through,  you hear so many stories and as this was both our first child  we never knew what really to expect.  As they led us to the our room I just kept thinking the time was finally here, I was going to be a dad.
