My DS was due on 9/11/01. Both my kids were pre-planned c-section babies (she was breech the whole pregnancy and I chose not to attempt a vaginal with DS) and that was his scheduled delivery date. Two weeks before that date the doctor said DS was bigger than he had thought he would be, so to make sure I didn't go into labor, he moved the delivery up to 9/7. I got released from the hospital on the evening of 9/10 (2 years ago today). I had been home only about 15 hours when my mom called to tell me what was going on. DD was watching Playhouse Disney and they don't break for news LOL. The magnitude of how huge that was was lost on me. I was having nursing issues with DS and it wan't until the second tower fell that I really grasped what had happened. I have a big bent-wood rocker in the bedroom that I retreated to. DD was 2 at the time and we didn't want her watching the news. Since I was up round the clock with a few day old baby, I sat glued 24 hours a day to that bedroom TV, sitting in that rocker. I watched everthing I could. I sat and cried my eyes out for the families of the missing, and hugged that baby just a little bit harder.
