Ok, ok, it's only 37 weeks, and DD came at 41+4, but it's still soooo good to be seeing the finishing post! And it's a great excuse to print out the homebirth supplies list and get going on buying bits and bobs we still need.<br><br>
I'm so big and heavy and ready to meet my baby!<br><br>
How is everyone else feeling as the due dates draw closer?

You do realise that means we will have all kinds of lurkers reading just like we do on the Apr/May boards right now!!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> Isn't that weird to think??

I wonder who will have the first baby of our DDC?? Probably not me, but I'm 36 weeks tomorrow and ok to birth at home by the end of this week (actually, she'd probably take me now anyways, but officially, 36.5....), eek! DD2 was almost 41 weeks though, so I won't get my hopes TOO high for a May baby!

Though I expect to go late (first pregnancy, all the women in my family consistently go late), I'm looking forward to hitting 37 weeks in 8 more days. It's the "official" point at which I can have my homebirth!<br><br>
I'm actually feeling pretty good. I've gotten a bit of energy lately, and this has been an easy pregnancy overall. Though my feet and hands just started getting all swollen in the last couple of weeks, which is not at all fun!

I have 11 days from today. And I find out Wednesday what will most likely be D-Day (sigh, scheduled c-section.. it's a MUST but still, hate even saying it here). WEIRD.

I'll be 37 weeks on Wednesday - I'm joyful and terrified all at once. Just this last week I've been feeling contractions and baby girl has dropped significantly. I can't wait to meet her! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">

I can officially homebirth as of tomorrow, when i hit 36 weeks. Very exciting, yet i'm still in denial. I woke up this morning feeling 'off'. My body is definately getting geared up. Though i doubt i'll go until May 30th at the earliest. Darn me and my 32 day cycles, or i'd have an edd of May 28th lol!<br><br>
I have everything for the homebirth except the tablecloth for under the tub. But im pretty much ready to go. I just need to clean and clear out the boxes i've been putting aside of stuff for storage. Oh and tomorrow i need to rinse and wash all the onesies i dyed today!

I have 18 days until 37 weeks, and Macie came at just over 39, so I'm really hopeful that I'm counting down to her actual birth day sooner rather than later!
