Who's ready to have a baby?

Me! Me! Pick me!
As you can see, I still have 27 days until my due date, so I really shouldn't be this anxious. However, Calvin would have been here for a week and a half already. So, every night since that 34½ week date has past, I lay awake in my bed psyching myself out with every kick, or every little pain that my water might break right then, and the mad dash to the hospital would begin.
Bella was only 8 days early, Azure 2 weeks - so I'm prepared for an early baby this time around. The bag is packed, I have made a few freezer meals, I have a sweet neighbor lined up to race over here in the middle of the night to stay with my kids, and we're ready to go. But of course, since I'm expecting it, this will probably be my one kid that I end up having to be induced for a week after my due date.
We'll see. I suppose I really should be extremely grateful that he's made it this far, and encourage little baby Emmett to cook a little longer. Plus, I have to admit that after our tour of the new hospital's birthing center yesterday, I am a little nervous to go through all of that again! So, it's OK, he can hang out for a few more weeks...

Well in a few weeks if there's no signs, you could try super spicy food and lots of sex. I bet Dan wouldn't mind! That's what will be on my agenda for my due date night. wink wink!

Isn't it so frustrating when you have early babies? Once you reach that point, it's hard to have patience. And it's so exciting at the end. That's awesome you're having a boy. Perfect - two girls and two boys. That's what I'd like. Good luck with everything!

Hey I saw your blog off of Valerie's hope you don't mind me looking.. Congrats on the upcoming baby, we are due Aug 8th with #4 as well. I have never went into labor on my own & I have gestational diabeties so they don't let me go over. I go in Aug 7th to be induced. We don't know what we are having we like the surprise at the end. Good luck with everything & I can't wait to see him when he arrives.
