April 3 is my date. Not my due date - that's the 8th - but the date I have stuck in my head as "the day." I don't care if he's born on the 3rd or 4th, but I'd like it to be that weekend. For a myriad of reasons - like DH gets no time off, so that's a Friday and we'd have the whole weekend. Like the kids have the whole next week off for Spring Break. Like Easter is a whole week away, then, and gives me time to recover before the holiday stuff, but enough time that I'll feel okay taking baby out to show him off. Like it's APRIL, and I'd really like an April and not a March baby. (Of course, he'll come on March 31st or something, just like my last stubborn son, who had to be born July 31 when he was due August 5!)
The odds are, though, it will probably be early or on-time-ish rather than late. I've never gone late yet. Still, they say fifth babies are weird... I guess we'll have to see!?
