I have been trying really hard to be patient this time, too. I have the patience of a fruit fly when I really want something so it has been difficult for me. I think most days I have been pretty good but I have to remind myself that she needs to stay in there a certain amount of time. DH on the other hand, is actually getting really impatient. I can barely say anything about her kicks hurting or feeling big without him saying something about her being big enough and to come out already. It's kind of cute.
I feel for you with wanting baby in your arms close to the end. Our first was stillborn at 38 weeks so I always get antsy around now and want her out just barely over the full term cut off date but I also want to go into labor on my own and not be induced again. They will be here soon!!!!
Oh my goodness. I'm sorry about the loss of your first. =(
