She is across the country and we have been texting. I am on pins and needles, did not sleep well, but so awaiting the news. Come on baby girl, we are all waiting for you.

Gemma was born in St Paul this morning!

3. Thank You! My daughter is 35 and I never wanted children in her 20s

Then she met this REALLY great man, they got married and now she is getting ready to have her first baby. She has not told me the name, I think they want to meet her before deciding.

6. So exciting! I too was not near...

when my daughter had her children...2nd time was twin girls at 33 weeks so was crazy with worry texts. All was well but so wanted to be closer.

Best of luck! Nothing more special than being a grandma...it's everything and more than I thought it would be, even from a distance. The time spent with them (now have 5 and a youngish granny at 60) is quality and intense so the bond is very strong!

Keep us posted and wishing for healthy and beautiful results!!

18. Going to meet the baby in August

As a mother of 4, I want to give my daughter and her husband time to get the new baby settled. Those first weeks can be rough. Can't wait to hear your splendid news soon.

20. At first glance, I saw, "Baby Camel!"

That would have been pretty cool.

This is also pretty cool.

Congratulations, Granny!
