Spokane City Councilwoman Amber Waldref missed Monday's council meeting because of the pending birth of her second child.
Spokane City Council President Joe Shogan said Waldref was in the hospital on Monday and was expecting to give birth soon.
Waldref's due date isn't for a few weeks, but she alluded last week to the possibility of giving birth earlier when the council decided to delay a vote until March 21 on new contracting rules that Waldref had proposed.
"We'll see if the baby is willing to wait a few weeks," Waldref said. "I hope I'm around in two weeks to debate this with you."
In an interview a few weeks ago, Waldref said she and her husband were waiting to find out if they were having a boy or girl.
