I can't believe it -- September has arrived. The month we've been counting down to since like January! (Or maybe December for some.)<br><br>
Congratulations, everyone!<br><br>
I'm one of the end-of-September people and am hoping that baby does NOT come much earlier; I still need some weeks to get stuff together and to process. So for me, I'm just now hitting "full term" and it's all just starting to become real. And I thought it was weird last month, when people would ask, when are you due and I'd say, next month!<br><br>
What about everyone else? What are your thoughts, feelings, concerns, hopes as we begin September?

I know! That's exactly what I thought when I woke up this morning - it's finally here! SEPTEMBER! WOO HOO!<br><br>
We are scheduled to welcome Little Sister on Wednesday, and I'm in that place where that still seems like forever away, but the days (and hours!) are going by so fast. I am excited and scared.

The grass is always greener on the other side, isn't it? I'm one of the mama's who is dying NOT to be pregnant anymore, for many reasons. But then I think about those such as yourself minnow that are completely content and think to myself that I should be like that. This is most likely my last pregnancy so I should enjoy it. But all my nesting is done, everything is done so I pretty much just sit here in anticipation. The change is going to be big going from one to two. We still don't know if we are moving. I'm still having tons of contrx, although I think I got the uti under control (thank God,that was sooo awful). And I am very very very happy it is September finally. I am def. counting down the days till baby is here (due Sept. 24th). I'm really really looking forward to birthing too!<br>
Okay thanks for giving me a post to ramble! Happy September and birthing everyone! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Hooray! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/partytime.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="partytime"> I am so happy it is September. I never thought I would have an August baby but I am so anxious to be done with pregnancy (I know I will miss it but...). I really want to meet my baby and get rid of some of these seriously annoying pregnancy symptoms. I hope we all get what we want, waiting if that works, birthing if that works! I am due the 13th but don't think I will hold out that long. I would love to give birth this week! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br>

September First! I am supposed to be driving out of town today, to our rented cottage four hours away, to await this baby.<br><br>
However, here I sit. I just have a feeling this babe is going to stay in for a whole lot longer - maybe even 3 weeks (EDD 9/11). So it's hard to motivate to drive all that way and sit there by myself (I can't even bring my beloved dog!) and wait.<br><br>
But I'm afraid of going into labour here, which would mean a hospital birth. So I'm planning to shove off tomorrow. And wait. And wait ... And wait.<br><br>
Although it's hard to get out the door, I am looking forward to it. I have a lot of alone-time work to do. By work, I mean I need to work through grieving the loss of the pregnancy (which I have enjoyed) and my old life, and moving on to the next stage. Hopefully when I am emotionally ready, the baby will be as well!

A few days ago I was having contractions and backache, and I was thinking "Oh no! I can't have an August baby!" I think because my birthday is in September that it is just a very special month for me.<br>
I am not due until around the 18th, but I feel ready now. Well, I do want the baby to wait, even though I am impatient, and today I finally came to a feeling of peace with waiting out these last couple of weeks. Especially since this is most likely my last baby.<br>
ATD-Mom - I hope your alone time in the cottage is vey relaxing and peaceful and allows you to work through your "stuff" before the birth of your babe.

I was really hoping for the end of August so we could have another month covered (dd1 is Sept 21) as pointless as that sounds.<br><br>
I am very ready but mostly because I am anxious to start the recovery. Physically I do okay but the emotional part takes me a good 3 months to balance out.<br><br>
My family deserves a nicer me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">
