Yay Sara! Congratulations on your new baby girl!
Reporting for duty! Nary a mucus plug in sight! Rachel, I hope your aunt's baby does well--sounds like a scary situation. And I totally relate to how you are feeling. I know several people due this week or later and I've been watching with dismay as one by one their babies come. And here I am, still pregnant, having to get up to go to work tomorrow yet again. Ugh. I only have two decent outfits that fit, too; it's so humiliating to show up day after day in the same...
