Locked, Loaded, and Leaving......

We got the good news that we are now locked and loaded in the head down ready position. This means no C-section for us.

At 37 weeks 1 day, we were 7 pounds 15 ounces and everything is looking very positive and healthy.
As I make this post we are at 37 weeks 4 days.

And everyday counts.

In the small chance that a C-section gets scheduled it will be September 2nd. Otherwise, we are looking at a due date of Sept. 7th.

We are hitting the road so that we can be there 2 weeks before the due date. I expect that this to give us plenty of time to sit around and twiddle our thumbs while we wait.

It's the classic hurry up and wait scenario.

Just waiting for the "belly lender" to pop.

Our great reward at this part of the process is only being terrified with boredom. With no medical issues or concerns to worry about we have nothing to fear.

Except of course, being in the delivery room.

And seeing a dirty baby.

If the hospital let's us fill out a birth plan - I know that my request is, I don't want to touch the baby until it has it's first bath. And to have women only in the delivery room.

I have the feeling that I will lose out on both of my wishes.

Despite that - here we come.

Oh my!! I am so thrilled that you are FINALLY at this point and can not wait to hear the good news. Do you have phone tree established so that someone (Jenn) can just text us and we continue to send the word on?
I am willing to bet you touch a dirty baby and LOVE it! Man, what I would give to be a fly on the wall!

I am sure that I will tolerate the situation.
