3 weeks 6 days

Until my due date. He's welcome to come any day after Friday (the 3rd). I have to do a few things yet like pack a hospital bag, and have P wash the NB and 0-3 mo. clothes. We have to arrange the two cribs in the nursery so we can get to the clothes.

The last two births at the Embassy (both within the last three weeks) have been very quick. Neither of them had time for an epidural, and one of them didn't even have the Dr. present because it was so quick (one almost didn't have a Dr present). Part of me thinks it would be nice to have it happen so quick, part of me is scared to deliver a full size baby with no drugs.

I filled in at work for my co-worker this last week and my body is exhausted. Thank God for a three day weekend!

I am one of those ladies who had a full term baby with no epidural.

Frankly, I don't recommend it ... it wasn't by choice!

Here's hoping all goes well. And soon!

Wishing you an easy and stress-free delivery (if that's possible)!
