Bryan says, "we did NOT want to have a baby on new years day of the new millennium, so we avoided trying to conceive on the days that the news said it was possible. After she was acting differently I suggested a home pregnancy test, well two in fact came up positive, she went to the doctors and the doctor said her due date is the first of the new year."
This will be their second child. Their daughter Jera was born on 12/17/97 at 1am. Bryans says, "my wife was due on the 15th and her labor started on the 16th...so we were one day late the first time and maybe we will be one day early this time".
Bryans says they are very excited and "delighted to be having our second child and very surprised and excited to be possibly of the only ones in this area to be due during that timeframe.
She tells us she didn't even really know there was a bunch of hype about Millennium babies until friends told them about it. Shelly says, "it would be interesting having a baby born on Jan 1. I think it would also be neat to have one born on Dec. 31. I think 70 years from now it will be cool to say that you were born back in the 1900's."
Both of Shelly's other children were born by c-section. Their doctor thinks there is a small chance she could give birth, but she thinks she will do a c-section. And probably before the first. She says, "I would rather be safe than sorry. If something does go wrong on Jan. 1 I would hate to be pregnant. I would rather be safe at home with my newborn."
Shelly says her husband will want to schedule a c-section the week before incase anything bad happens after the first. "Talked to a friend who works in the local hospital in delivery and she says they haven't tested all their equipment yet and to be truthful they have no clue. Now they hope to have it tested sometime this summer, but who would trust people who wait to the last minute" says Shelly.
