What Does Cause Labor...


We intended to go to Carrabba's for Valentine's, but (as I expected) the wait was over an hour. I was a nine-month pregnant woman, and that wait was not going to work for me. We thought about where we could go and settled on sushi. We'd been to a great little place once before, but we never went back because a different place was always running good deals.

We got there, and while they weren't dead, there were still open tables. We had a delicious spread consisting of (now take notes for when you're ready to pop):

- Asparagus Rolls
- Oshinko Rolls
- Tofu Rolls w/Miso Sauce
- Sweet Potato Tempura & Avocado Rolls (Amazing)
- Avocado Rolls w/Miso Sauce

As you can see, they're very vegan-friendly.

Here's the final touch: At the end of the night, Jimmy, the owner, came around with roses for all the ladies. He gave me my rose, touched my belly, and labor started within hours.

Thank you, Jimmy!

The Magic Labor Rose (Which has about an inch of new growth since we've come home).
The birth story will be up soon I hope. It's a long one!
