4 days to go...

Today was especially productive, since our friends Joe and Megan came over to clean for us while David and I went out to eat and for ice cream. Our house looks great, and I am so stuffed from dinner. I actually can't sleep right now, and I can't figure out if that is more an effect of lots of sugar from my ice cream or excitement and pregnancy insomnia. Either way, David is getting some shut eye and I am on the internet trying to wear myself down a little.

I went for my last non-stress test and prenatal appointment today, and everything still seems fine. Even though I've been told three or four times now what I can expect on Sunday, I still feel like I'm flying by the seat of my pants a little bit. I think shy of giving me a blow-by-blow of the whole labor experience, I won't feel prepared any way we go about it, so now I just feel ready to do this thing. There are so many variables (inducing four weeks early, how I'll respond to the medicine, how I'll respond to the pain, whether or not I can do it without pain relief, how long I'll hang in there, whether or not this guy wants to cooperate, how he'll do once he's born, etc) that I've finally been forced to release control and just have a baby.

Anyway, David has offered to try to keep up with updating the blog for you guys who are far, far away and are interested in knowing when he arrives. We won't do a play by play unless he's just super bored and feels so inclined, but I'm sure he'll be more able to post a picture or two (and a name!!) than I will.

I cant wait to hear how it all went. You will do great! You have been ready for this baby since I have known you and maybe longer. Do you have the name chosen yet or are you going to wait until you see your little man? We were planning on doing that but couldnt manage to pick out more than one name to give us the choice.
