My wife is 8 months pregnant and she is due to give birth to our third daughter at any time.
It makes me nervous to leave the house in the morning, because I’m afraid that I won’t be there when the baby is born.
I miss the birth of our second child, because I was in an area without any service. By the time I got the call from my sister-in-law, my son was already born. I left the house on Monday morning around 7:00 and my wife was feeling just fine. I had a couple of jobs scheduled in South Bend, Indiana. South Bend is right on the border of Indiana and michigan. I thought I would have a little bit of time to hop over the border and go to a dispensary before I headed back home, but my wife went into labor that afternoon. Thankfully, I was working in South Bend that day. The previous day I took a repair job all the way down in Knox and I was gone all day. I didn’t have any phone service either, because I was working downstairs in the boiler room most of the time. The customer never calls me for boiler service unless it’s bad so I knew it was going to take all day. As soon as I got a call from my wife saying she was going to the hospital, I stopped what I was doing and called for backup. I got one of my technicians to come to the heating and AC repair job so I could go to the hospital to be with my wife.
