I think as we're getting physically prepared (packing, nesting etc) we start to get mentally prepared too. DD#1 was 12 days early, so I kind of expect (for some unknown reason!) this one to be a tad early too.
But, then again, each pregnancy is kind of a crapshoot :LOL With DD#1 my first inkling of labor was my water breaking at 1:50am and contractions started at a minute and a half apart at that point. I had her in 3.5 hours! This time I could have contractions first, I could have a very long labor etc. I really don't know how it will go! And here I was thinking since I had 1 data point I kind of knew how things would go this time around - wrong! It's very surreal at this point to me.
I can't wait to read more birth stories from this group. It's neat having "bonded" over the course of the last few months together!
