The phone calls and emails have begun rolling in now. Honestly, people, I WILL tell you when this baby is here! I honestly can't wait to shout it from the rooftops and show her picture to anyone I can (as long as uninvited visitors are not showing up at my door).
Haha, with my first -- the one who came 15 days late -- I had one family member who messaged me every. day. starting BEFORE my due date -- and as it got later, sometimes multiple times a day -- if I'd had the baby yet. I kept promising I'd tell her, but I guess she wasn't sure I would... good thing I didn't tell her when I went into labor (because it was some 31 hours of it... even my parents were worried when they didn't get updates throughout that labor!)
And I hear you on the birth videos... my midwives have been giving me video after video to watch, and every time I think... phew, I don't want to do this again. The worst was the mama who had back labor... oh, I've been there, and I do. not. want. to do that EVER again. I think I need to spend equal times on hands and knees, and on my knees in prayer, over that one!
