And that means WE'RE NEXT!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yikes">:<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Today my pregnancy calendar thingy said I was 35w0d and 35 days to go. Crazy! But seeing the posts from September is driving it home - we WILL have babies soon! Can't believe it!! In fact, in the next two-and-a-half weeks, we'll have mamas at TERM - as in, within the 38-42 wk window of "normal" birth time! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana"><br><br>
Can't wait for OUR stories to start, mamas!! Are you ready yet? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

No, I'm not ready. I don't think I will get to a ready point this time though.<br><br>
We already have three babies...any day now the announcement posts will be rolling in.

Heather you crack me up because you alway keep us on our toes letting us know the time is coming quicker than we expect it (quicker than I expect it) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I love your posts! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
It's hard to believe, I feel like I'm ready though, been having mild ctx definitely not BH, and hopefully they're doing something but nothing to get to excited about. 2 more weeks and I can relax a little more and really look forward to this baby coming.

We are not ready. The baby does not feel ready to hatch yet, but I am only 33 weeks. And I am not quite ready yet to use those diapers - right now they just look like decoration in the nursery. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
How will I know which clothes to put on the baby at what times or temperatures? When to feed it? When to diaper it? What if I cannot diaper correctly? ..... O.K., no panic now. Just breathe...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I am 35 weeks now. Last night I kept thinking that my water was going to break, and I was trying to imagine how it was going to feel. It was kind of weird I know. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="huh"> I need to get off my duff and get this stuff done around here. I'm due the beginning of October. I'm just guessing that I will go 42 weeks or longer but the other day my friend said, "You know you very well could go any time now." What is she trying to do to me? I don't even have all my home birth supplies. Not even 1 newborn diaper. Nothing! SHHHHHHHHHHHH

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Can you guess that I am so NOT ready that I have to keep reminding myself that it really IS going to be time - SOON?! Yeah, I think if I freak myself out enough about how soon it is, it'll finally hit and I'll get everything done!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
I seem to be pretty good at losing track of time, anyhow... like my DS2 starts preschool next Tuesday and I don't have a "physician statement" for him yet! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"> Thank goodness there are only so many things one needs to actually give birth - but I still don't have them all! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I'm 35w 1d and while our house isn't all the way ready (dresser and changing table pad, still need some basics for the baby), I'm definitely feeling ready!!! I keep telling her that once we hit 37 weeks she's welcome to come!!! My hope is to get mostly everything settled for her this weekend so that we can relax a bit (hopefully). I'd love for her to be a late-September baby!

I think I'm ready now! I just need to wash the carseat cover! After my mini meltdown a week or so ago, I got busy...washed all the clothes, put them away, put the Amby together, scheduled my birth center tour, and ordered a storage tower for random baby stuff. Oh, and got a carseat! I feel ready *enough*...but I need the baby to wait a couple of weeks...gotta make it to 36, 37 preferably!

i had my 34 week appointment with my midwife today and it was all about getting ready and what we need to be doing now and what to get. eek<br><br>
technically i don't have to much to do to get ready. i interviewed a homeopath/pediatrician today and we need to interview another pediatrician and buy a few things from a list the midwifes have me. i really don't feel ready but then i doubt i am ever going to feel ready. i feel like i will be as read as i can when this baby is ready to be born and thats the best i can do.
