A couple weeks ago, on the Thursday of April 25th, 2013, at 10:30 PM (finally got the date right...), Cobalt had entered strong labor for the first time, and a baby was due to be born.
It's now the start of May, and the poor thing is still in labor. After being pregnant for over a year, Cobalt's developed a medical condition that is preventing his babies from being born. I'm currently treating him with special medication to help, and so far it's working like magic.
Cobalt's exhausted every day, and the labor pain is hard for him to deal with, but the both of us are hanging in there. We already know which baby in his clutch of 8 will be born, so now we're just waiting for his condition to clear up enough for him to finally give birth. I'm doing all I can to make him as comfortable as possible.
Now, it's simply a waiting game. Cobalt's very tense, and scared. The birth could happen nearly any day now...Good luck to him.
