The End of the Road

This baby will be coming soon! That thought is on my mind constantly lately--my due date is about two weeks out, which means...well, all it really means is that I'll probably be having a baby sometime in the next four weeks or so. Sometimes I really wish the timing were not so uncertain! People keep asking me if I'm "ready"--I'm not sure what that is supposed to mean. What is being ready for a baby? I've got plenty of things in mind I'd like to do before the baby comes, primarily getting my house in better order. Some will get done, doubtless many will not. In the end it won't matter--we'll have a new baby to love a cherish and brighten our lives. How could I not be ready for that?
Of course, I've got to get through labor first...

You'll do great! I can't wait to hear all about it. And let's talk again soon!

Praying for you in the last few weeks. Will be fun to see the new little one.

I am glad that you posted about this. I was wondering if you had the baby yet. I am reassured to know that you have plenty of experience and that you will do great. Looking forward to seeing those sweet baby pix!

Ah, I'm a notoriously over-due kinda person when it comes to having babies. I don't even start thinking about having a baby until 5 days after my due date. LOL

Do you usually go early or late or on time??? That, of course, is the biggest predicter of when you're likely to hold this precious babe in your arms.

Thank you for the encouragement and prayers. Melody, so far my babies have ranged from 11 days early to 4 days late...so, basically, I have no idea when this one will arrive!
