    9 more days til my c-section and im getting nervous, excited and paranoid lol. the first two are normal but the paranoia spurs from the hope that i will make it to the 11th and not go into labor before hand. mainly because thats when my husband has time planned off and if i went before hand i would need to find a babysitter for my daughter while he worked at night and i recovered. otherwise i would be quite happy to have this baby in my arms and know FINALLY know what gender has been kicking me for months on end lol. But i did think i was gunna have to go in to the hospital for labor Halloween night when i walked about a mile with my daughter and hubby. after a sleepless night the contractions died off at 6am, and no change down there when my doc checked. /sigh all pain no gain i guess. on the bright side a friend sprung that shes throwing me a baby shower after baby is born ^_^ great surprise when i didnt think i would get one. hope everyone had a great Halloween! i showed off my big ol' belly with a preggo witch costume

    I definitely understand the paranoia thing. I am just sitting here every day like 'is it going to happen today?' lol. I'm 38 weeks now and every day is a day closer and I'm super nervous and paranoid and wondering if I'll be ready or not. But I'm totally excited to meet my little boy finally. Just want this part of my life to be over with. (I'm not good at being pregnant... lol). Plus the doc told me I'm 1 cm and thinning out and the cervix is soft so she said last week "see ya next monday-or earlier" now I'm just wondering if she knows something I don't.

    Good luck to you on your c-section! Cant wait to know if it's a boy or girl!!
