While awake from Midnight to 3 AM this morning, I was comforted by the knowledge that it is now officially our birth month! You have no idea how insanely happy this makes me! I'm in such a good mood knowing that it's now July! Now I know that some of us, myself included, could very well birth in August but I'm ignoring that fact right now! Sheepish.gif

 

Another thing that is making me happy today is that it's a long weekend and we have nothing scheduled until Monday! Woooohoooo!

I, too, woke up celebrating Birth Month!! :) I'm due Tuesday but I'm pretty sure I've got a little more time than that still. Either way, this is the month!!!

I am due the 31 but it's nice to finally be in July.

I've definitely become a watched pot with family calling regularly asking how I am feeling and if I feel the baby is ready yet. One of my daughters woke me up at 7am a few days ago asking if it was July yet. I'm excited about the baby too, but let's let it grow a little while longer before it makes his or her entrance!

 

I'm pretty excited. Diapers are washed, clothes are washed, sheets are washed. Next is wash the baby's blankets, diaper covers, and then clean the house. 

This weekend, we're stocking up the pantry to be prepared for snacks/foods that are easy to prepare when the baby comes.

My guess date is today!  I'm so thankful to have a care provider who will "let" me stay pregnant as long as baby wants to, so long as we're both doing fine.  I want my baby to know he's welcome to stay in my belly as long as he needs to, and pick his own birthday.

 

That being said...

 

OMG BABY! PLEASE COME OUT SOON!  This weekend would be just perfect...  praying.gif

 

hahahahha

Crossing over from June, still waiting on my little one who will definitely be a July baby at this point!

My Edb was June 26th, so I've got my hopes up for this week ahead!

So exited as well!!! I was even wondering whether I should post this "Welcome to July"  post as I am much further east than most you....

Glad the post is here!

I'm so excited too!  I'm really hoping though that I can have this baby before my scheduled induction.  It's coming really fast!

Hallelujah, it's raining babies! Today when I was telling my DH about all the new babies, he said, "So I guess you guys are all going to start popping like popcorn now!" lol.gif

joy.gif Bring on the July babies!

My 40w EDB is July 30 and all my other babies came a day or 2 late so I could go into July but who knows. I'm actually hoping for August 1st or 2nd. My mom is trying to figure out when to come. She lives a state away and will be my support person during my labor and birth since my dh is deployed.
