I have been obsessing over birth stories lately. The way I see it I have two weeks before I can have my homebirth (at 36 weeks) then up to 8 weeks to have this baby. That's a HUGE window. I am trying to psyche myself up for a 42 week pregnancy, that way I wont get too crazy impatient.<br><br>
One way or another by 8 weeks I am going to have a baby. That's just plain crazy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">

I'm conflicted! I REALLY want to meet our little baby, but I am really enjoying being pregnant too!<br><br>
Maybe I will feel more prepared after my baby shower on the 12th (I will be 36 weeks). As of now all I have for baby is nursery furniture in the baby's room upstairs that we won't be using for several months, and the bedding for the nursery. Not a onsie, a diaper, nothing! I need to get myself in gear!<br><br>
The good news is, I do have all of my supplies for our homebirth...

Yikes! It's so hard to believe that our due dates are just around the corner. I just realized I'll be 34 weeks tomorrow. That means just 6 weeks to go. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!">

Once we get to June, we'll really be feeling pregnant (like we haven't been already!)<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Lalala! I'm not listening! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/2whistle.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="2whistle"><br><br>
I alternate between really wanting to meet this little boy and to hold my baby, to examine him and smell him and touch his little limbs, feet, hands....<br><br>
....and then to freaking out like OMG!!!!!!! thinking about giving birth and also the crazy postpartum period because I always have such a struggle with bfing and the mood stuff and sleep deprivation.<br><br>
Sigh.<br><br>
It will all be okay. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I can't believe it either! I'm not due until June 28... so now I might be stalking the July DDC threads during the last weeks. I am ready to meet my lo, but am trying to stay positive about carrying her longer so she is as healthy as possible! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

My midwife was here today. I was telling her about my "plan till 42 weeks, so I don't get impatient" idea... she said she like it, and pointed out it was only 56 days. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jaw.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dropjaw"> That's all? I only have 53 days left that I can be pregnant. Holy cow! THEN... she set up my appointment to bring my birth supplies. In 8 freak'n days. EIGHT. Oh my oh my. I can have my homebirth in as little as 11 days.<br><br>
Ok deep breaths. All these numbers... They are getting so much smaller than I thought. I know that's crazy talk. But come on. 11 days?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">

I have 57 days until my due date, but only 36 days until I'm comfy birthing at home. Only 71 days left to be pregnant (if I go 42 weeks)...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!">
