Praying for your wife and the baby and the doctor and you right now.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph watch over this family now and may the baby be healthy and the mother recover quickly.

It is possible that the baby is born now.Though primips (first pregnancies) can take a long time.May God watch over your wife and child during the labors of delivery. May all be well and healthy and good Godly names come into your heart for your child. May you feel the Joy in sharing n creation. Mary, Mother of God, pray for them. in Jesus name, Amen.


Happy pushing!

It took us three days after our second daughter was born before we named her. If your wife takes a nap during labor (I did) you should too — welcome to the unique world of how cats operate ---- sleep, wake, eat, sleep, sleep, wake, sleep, eat … Repeat in random order. Blessings on you and your family. :slight_smile:

Prayers for a quick delivery and health for baby and mommy. Peace for daddy. :gopray2:



Are we there yet?

Thanks everyone!! My wife had a boy, very healthy (we didn’t hear the weight but he looks great). Got stuck there for a minute, but baby’s guardian angel gave the extra push and got him out!

We are still deciding on a name. Thanks again!

Congratulations & God bless you, your wife & son. Prayers for a healthy baby.



If YOU get similarly stuck … per the name thing. Maybe mull an angel themed name.

Angel itself is popular, particularly among hispanics. Then there’s Michael, Gabriel, Raphael (archangels); or Tobias (Toby) and Peter (people who were guided and helped by angels in the Bible).

If you are a baseball Angels’ fan, there’s Nolan, Ryan, Tim, Salmon (Salm for short) :smiley: - have fun with it … and congratulations. Welcome little brother … whoever you are. :clapping::dancing::extrahappy::bounce: :love:

Congratulations! Good luck with picking out a name for your bundle of joy!


And congratulations to you, mom and dad. Your live is now significantly changed forever.
Forever to the good.


Praying hard.

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.


Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.


Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
