Yeah, it's crazy.<br><br>
I was in L&D for 5 hours last night getting a non stress test (decreased fetal movement)- everything is fine. But there was a woman giving birth and I could hear her, and I got kind of excited but also kind of scared...am I ready to do this again? Naturally? (I think she may have had drugs because she was waaay quieter than I remember being, but then again everyone is different so who knows!) I guess I will be when the time comes. I'm so excited to meet this little one. But I'm 31 weeks...9 left, and I think this baby may come in the week before the EDD. I'm due 7/12, and tomorrow is 5/12....wow.<br><br>
Before this babe comes we need to FINISH the home renovations. I've had no kitchen for the last 3 weeks and it's looking like it will be another month before it's done. Ahhhhh!

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!<br><br>
Thanks for that little reality check, EMandM!<br><br>
I'm 31, and just yesterday was thinking that I need to relax a bit, that I have longer than I feel like I do. But no!<br><br>
Must nest! Do laundry! redecorate our bedroom! Feed the freezer! Wash baby clothes! reorganize office/guestroom! Panic! Panic!

x-posted - I think we are in some sort of karmic alignment! The vermont thing, and we have the same EDD.<br><br>
FWIW - I was pretty quiet while I was giving birth - no drugs. Just really peaceful & focused. Like you said - everyone is different!

nonononononono! I am just going to stay right here in denial about his <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
I can't believe that in a month, we will be full-term . . . I have too much on my plate before the baby gets here. I should be packing right now.<br><br>
Whew! I know we'll be okay. We have the diapers and boobs and love! Gotta get that carseat, though.<br><br>
Okay, I'm just thinking out loud now.<br><br>
I'm not really scared of the labor as much as I am intimidated by all of the life changes and of course a little worried that the baby is all right, though it kicks like a champ and all my mw visits have been spot on in every way.<br><br>
Trying to talk myself down, here <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

33 weeks Sunday - so excited to be able to say that I will be full term in 4 short weeks! I am trying very hard not to wish this pregnancy away - this will be our third and last : ( but I also just get so so so excited to meet and see the little one, and for the natural birth experience, that I find myself wishing the days away a bit! I just keep trying to plan thigns with friends and fill up the calendar as much as possible in order to get my mind off of counting the days! Wow, we really are getting close. If only this poor little girl had a name!

I'm so excited, I can't wait. But also trying to really enjoy the last few weeks--this is the last time I'll ever be pregnant, the last time I'll ever feel a baby wiggling around inside me. I'm just so excited to meet him. I'll be full-term 5 weeks from today!

This is me too. I realize how quickly the memory of being pregnant fades that I don't want to wish it away. Then again, last night I was so uncomfortable with my super high baby that 10 more weeks sounded like an eternity.

It kinda makes me sad that there aren't graduate forums for each DDC or for a few at a time. That's how my previous baby forum worked. We all graduated together and joined one or two other DDC's afterwards. Here everything is so mixed after birth. *sigh*

Yeah, I've seen other mamas complaining about this too. I agree.<br><br>
In the "Life with a Babe" forum, sometimes DDCs will have their own thread going.

Yeah, but it seems like any questions posed in a single thread is bound to get overlooked. And if tempers are flashing here occasionally because someone feels left out, it'll be so much worse afterwards. Maybe if we all complained to an MDC mod requestion forums for newborns for Jan-Mar, Apr-June, July-Sep, Oct-Dec???? I mean could be reasonable, no?
