My plans are to come home from work, have a quick bite to eat, and pop out a baby before midnight with no pain.

Really, I have no plans at all. Maybe I'll take down the Christmas tree. I know, I'm a party animal!

My hubby will be working. It's his busiest night of the year so he'll be gone til 2:30am.

The kids and I will stay home as always. We don't have any family nearby.

DH is still sick, so we'll be staying home. And in fact, will most likely just go to bed as usual. I'm such a party pooper (if we even stay up til midnight, we go to bed close after) but now especially, being so tired.....I could really care less.

My partner and I will be laying low with our boys. I want to make something special for dinner, but don't know what yet. Maybe we'll play some games or something....We're not exactly party animals - especially this year.

I know I'm not having my baby tomorrow! I always go late (edd 1/10/09)!

Maybe some Wii bowling with the girls like last year. It's too hard to find a sitter so we'll end up staying in no matter what.

this sounds pretty good to me!


actually, we are going out to dinner to a favorite restaurant as a family, then we'll come home and probably all fall asleep *trying* to stay up till midnight . My dh and I usually attend a big party (fundraiser for a local charity), but this year I just didn't feel up to it. Staying at home with the family will be nice (and the weather is supposed to be yucky here).

we're probably just going to watch the ball drop on tv and lament the state of current pop music.

If we do anything celebratory, it'll be early in the day. Austin has a neat family event -- First Night that we try to go to. I'm not sure if I'll be up the walking or not. Early afternoon seems to be my energy low of the day. So, if we do that, we'll get home around dinnertime, eat, put dd to bed, have myself a little glass of champagne, and go to bed.

Of course, the day laboring and delivering a tax break baby would be A-OK with me, too.

My boys and I will play games, rent movies, eat junky snacks, and have sparkling cider for New Year's. Well, assuming that we are not having a baby anyway.

We'll be waiting for a baby ... I honestly thought this baby would be born before Christmas! I'm still in shock that it hasn't been. Ohwell.

DD1 wants to stay up til midnight. I suppose, if we're in labor, she'll get her wish!

Other than that, my big exciting plans will include some "tickle juice" with the kids and maybe my parents (non-alcoholic champagne) and soaking the black eyed peas ... I like the idea of "inducing", though.

Weather permitting I am helping to run a family friendly dance party tomorrow night. We have a bit of weather blowing in to the tune of 3-6 inches, so it may not happen. Before you say it, this dance is going to be attended by at LEAST 2 midwives and 3 doulas, and it is down the street from the hospital where I am due to birth. Not to mention 10 minutes from my parents house. Yep, if baby decides to arrive tomorrow night, I am covered.

We're going to order a pizza and probably watch a movie. I'm really not in the mood to do anything until I have the baby, including cooking or celebrating. I'm not usually a big New Year's Eve celebrator anyway. In the past I've always worked.

I plan on going to bed early as well, since every night I'm up having painful contractions and feeling nauseated, leaving me exhausted and still pregnant by the time morning arrives! (Don't mind me, I'm not usually such a grinch!)

We are planning on going downtown to see the "Pine Cone Drop"! It's a rip off of Times Square Ball Drop, in a much smaller & alpine venue! But with the temps being in the teens, we'll see how long we'll last out there!:

Probably just relax and watch TV and enjoy DD till she's ready for bed. Then crash too, i feel a bit like I've been hit by a truck these days. Then again, I told this baby it had to wait till Jan, so I guess it has permission to start labor any time now. I'm cool if its a Jan 1st baby

No baby here either. But OMG... she was is even lower and I didn't even think that was possible! She has been pinching on my cervix all day yesterday and today... I can't even bend now she is sooo low. Hurts too much.

The food we had at my parents was yummy though.

no baby still

AMAZINGLY no baby...38w6d

After a horrid day of throwing up, cramps, sleeping and general unwell feeling...

ds went to bed and even b4 dh left for his gig the contractions/cramping started yet again! I was LOVING it, hoping that this would be OVER... dh was scared to leave, since my labour w ds was 2 h 15 m

Texted dh at 1130 telling him the contractions we're strongish, and I had some bloody show...he came home around 4 and contractions we're still coming and going, but they had moved into my back and legs(i'd not had the leg thing w ds)...so I got no sleep last night!..no baby!...no patience left!...now Im having that pinchy cervix thing that pp mentioned...wtf is that??

mommy daddy son daughter = our family
