Brennen Trace Gaddis
We ate at Scalini’s in Marietta on Saturday, April 4th, 2009 around 5:30 pm. I had the Eggplant Parmigiana (of course!) and my husband had the chicken parmesan. I was 1 week before my due date and very anxious to meet our 3rd child. A good friend of mine had eaten your eggplant parm back in October of 2006 and it worked for her, so she told me I had to try it. I did and ate every last bite! Did I mention I have never eaten eggplant before either? It was delicious! 🙂 (We did sign the book)
Sunday morning I woke up and just felt different. We went for a walk and to the park with our youngest daughter and then came back to the house and I started to pick up and do some cleaning because I just felt like something would be happening soon since I had been through this 2 times before.
Sunday evening at about 10 pm my contractions started coming about 5 to 10 minutes apart; by midnight, they were every 2 to 5 minutes apart. We called the midwife and she told us to come on in to the hospital. I spent the early hours of the morning walking at the hospital and things finally really picked up by afternoon. By 5 pm I was in full blown labor and almost ready to push!
Brennen Trace Gaddis was born at 6:12 pm, weighed 8 lbs 2 oz and 20 inches long!
I truly believe it was the eggplant parmigiana that helped us get to hold our little man in our arms a week earlier than we expected and we are so happy that he is here!
