I'm still here, but then, I'm not actually due for another two weeks. And I'm quite happy still being pregnant. 2016 might be a bit long, but I wouldn't mind having another three or possibly four...

Every once in awhile, I freak out that maybe I can't do this naturally after all. Especially after a co-worker who just had a baby came in yapping about the "walking epidural" she got and how it...
