|other than the hugeness of this child and my pelvis barely hanging on, i have no reason to believe i'll be delivering any time soon.|

I'm here too...hoping to hold out until my in-laws arrive tomorrow afternoon. My mother has been staying with us since Friday ( I was scheduled for an emergency inversion but fortunately My Little One moved ) and she is beginning to bug me. She wants complete control of my children and considers me and my mothering inappropriate on many levels. Last night and this morning my boys ( 6 and 3 ) had 2 hours of very strict and structured work book lessons. We don't homeschool and I firmly believe that weekends are times for kids to be kids. But, her philosophy is that children need to be learning every waking moment. Well, it made me rebel why not try to see if my children will do the same. Please forgive me, I do love my mom but, she makes me very uncomfortable...fortunately, I've blocked most of my childhood. Anyway, at just about 38 weeks, I feel that I'm pretty much ready. I'm beginning to get a little scared about labor again. I have decided to go against my private birth and have invited my MIL to join my husband and me. Since they are flying across the country and are getting older ( they don't look or act mid to late 70's ) I thought it would be a nice gesture to include her. She's actually quite honored to attend the birth of her first born's baby...even though it's his second. Did that make sense??? So, a bit a rambling maybe caused by sleep deprevation or just overload of pregnancy hormones.
I hope everyone is hanging in there and resting as comfortably as possible.
Easy Labors and Happy Birthing Wishes to everyone!
It really is nice to be in the same boat with so many great women.
Yesterday was my due date, and I really thought last weekend I would go into labor. I am starting to feel like it will never happen. My son was a week early so I just assumed. Probably a good thing because he has been really fussy and sick this whole week, and we havent gotten any sleep.
Hope everyone has a great, restful Sat.
