I want him here now!! I don't want to wait anymore, I'm ready NOW!<br><br>
I need to make time move FASTER! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Man, I'm just so excited <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">!!!<br><br>
Anyone else feel this way?<br><br>
Anyone NOT ready and welcoming the wait?<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I get what you mean... but OTOH, I've been strangely paranoid about preterm labor or premature delivery this time around. I know a few people who have BTDT, and so I'm reluctant to give into the impatience, for fear I'll jinx us. ;-)<br><br>
I'll frankly be relieved when I pass the 24-week mark (two weeks from tomorrow) and it's all downhill from there, in terms of baby being "ready."<br><br>
At 37 weeks, it will be time to start getting impatient. ;-)

This would be me. I have way too much to do to get ready, and I can't do most of it until after the holidays. I have enough clothes and diapers, but we have projects we want to get done before the baby arrives. And I'm still looking for a homebirth midwife.

I'm not ready and I'm not welcoming the wait. I have to *START* getting things together, rearrange and (probably reorganize)our bedroom to be baby compatible. It's the only place where I can imagine the baby's stuff going for now.<br><br>
Even so, I want this baby now not later.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mischievous.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="mischief"> Kinda having a get it over with now mentality. And I'm already tired of being pregnant <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">

I'm actually pretty happy to wait. I have nothing ready yet! I have no baby clothes at all, no oneies, tees, pants, socks, nothing and I need to get a few things or this little girl is going to be nekkid!<br>
I do have plently of prefolds and covers so I'm ready in the diaper department.<br>
I need DH to sidecar the crib to the bed so that we can co-sleep and I'll be more at ease with it and so I don't have to get a bassinet or anything.<br>
I'm just not ready! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I'm enjoying it too because I know that this is going to be our last and I want to cherish every moment.

Not ready in any way.<br><br>
I really want to hold onto these last few months with our family just as it is. Adding someone new is going to be one big adventure, I'm sure!<br><br>
Plus, I need to finish the whole spring semester before he gets here. I don't want to deal with labor and finals at the same time.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wild.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wild"><br><br>
ETA: Forgot to say that, for the most part, I am actually enjoying this pregnancy. Dh swears that he's getting the big "V" in January. Knowing that we are done, for sure, I don't want it to go by too quickly.

I find I'm getting more and more excited about the baby himself being here.<br><br>
At the beginning I was in shock and it took a while to adjust to the idea that we were going back to babyland after thinking we were done. But the semi-dread and fear I had those weeks is gone. The past few weeks I've really been enjoying the pregnancy itself. And now I'm starting to tingle with anticipation at his arrival, looking forward to the birth (at least till the first contractions come and I remember it all <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> ) and seeing our new family member.<br><br>
I wouldn't say I'm ready to be done, though. I'm still enjoying the pregnancy, though another 4 months seems like forever and it'll get harder when I can no longer bend over at all, have heartburn at night, and so on. I'll probably get really impatient at 33 weeks . . . since my 33-weeker (#2) came out healthy as a horse. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Right now Baby would have lots to wear on the outside, but no diapers or nowhere to sleep! We too have to figure out the side-carring thing (and heck, get a matress for the crib), and the diaper stash is so far nil, as I've just been to intimidated to start yet. There's a local class in January that should help with that though...<br><br>
I'm actually kind of looking forward to labor <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hide.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hide">:, I'm learning so much about it now with the classes and reading, I'm just wondering how it's all going to play out for us!

For me it depends on the day... or sometimes the hour. Today I'm glad to have 17 weeks left so I can get the house more organized/emptied before Baby comes. Most of the time though I just want to go to sleep and wake up to do labour so I can hold my baby!

This is how I feel too. This is the first time we haven't done a 20 week u/s and found out the sex, and I have problems with being impatient. I am very excited to find out who this little one inside me is! We knew our other kids names from 20 weeks when we found out the gender, so this time it is a whole different scenario. I'm glad to be waiting even if I still have moments of wanting to meet the baby *RIGHT NOW*. I have tons of things I want to accomplish before April and I want to enjoy this time with just the 2 kids. I'm a tiny bit nervous about adding 1 more anyway. I actually really enjoy being pregnant for the most part, so it is nice to kinda not focus so much on the end result and just let things be. I guess I'm learning some new patience skills this time around <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I too am excited and want to meet him but at the same time want time to get "ready" for having 3 children at home under 4 (as if that is going to happen <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">) But I really can't wait to look in his eyes and hold him...oh the babymoon phase is just soooo wonderful.

If I somehow had my dates wrong, went into labor, and delivered him full-term in three hours, I would be 100% ready and happy to see him.

that's exactly how I felt the first time around. The second time was so intense and quick and exhausting I spent the first few months of this pg dreading labor (I don't wanna...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">)<br>
Now I'm looking forward to it again. Birth is so powerful and amazing.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy"> And you get your delicious baby after it is all over<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/biggrinbounce.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bgbounce">

After my total melt-down earlier this week, I'm starting to feel better and be much much more excited. I still have a ton to do -- I'm making 90% of my diaper stash and need to get going on that big time, but hopefully it won't take too long once I get started. (And hopefully I'll get a bunch done this weekend) We do have a whole list of projects, both baby and around the house that we'd like to get done, but we're making good progress and if something doesn't get done, oh well!<br><br>
I can't get myself too excited though, as I have a weird work situation b/c of my hire date and reaching the 1 year mark for maternity leave. If I have the baby by c-section any time after 37 weeks, I get leave, however if I have a natural delivery, I need to work RIGHT up to my due date <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"> I feel like they WANT me to have a planned surgical delivery. I know that's not the case, it just works out badly in my situation. The babe coming a week 'late' would actually be awesome.
