We thought that we must be really close to transition and I was maybe at 3! (never went past 8)Bring on the drugs please. As it all turned out after 16 hours of labor our son was what they called "sunny side up" and I needed an emergency c-section and because of the previous drugs I had to be put under, no epidural for me! Got the belly button down cut and had an asthma attack on the table. So after he was born (perfect) I was put into the ICU for 24 hours. Things were different 31 years ago so he wouldn't have been with me around the clock anyway but I couldn't see him at all. I had a Polaroid photo next to me. (and just so you know we were never allowed to see the sonogram screen or get a photo printed at that time either) My husband told me that when they wheeled me out of surgery I told him that he (our son) would be an only child.

Presidents are inaugurated on January 20th. In 1937, Inauguration Day moved to January 20, a change enacted by the 20th amendment to the Constitution. The Vice President's swearing-in ceremony also moved, from the Senate chamber to the Inaugural platform on the Capitol's east front. In 1981, the Inaugural ceremonies moved to the west front terrace of the Capitol, where they have been held ever since. So when a President is being inaugurated you will always know that it's our son's birthday. I have always said to him that when he becomes the President of the United States he will be inaugurated on his Birthday!!
