Delivery approaches


Well, I've got our delivery room all outfitted just like I want. I'm pretty sure Anya is going to like the set-up; pretty mom-friendly, don't you think?

As Borat would say, "NOT!!!!"

Yes, the delivery date is coming. The official due date is March 3rd, I think, if we go by the last menstrual period. The sono that we did earlier showed February 28th, which is not that big of a difference. Either way, the baby is coming.

I remember when we found out we were pregnant--this delivery thing was far off, you know, after the holidays, over the horizon, too far away to even begin to think about. Not anymore.

I have been keeping a positive attitude about the whole thing, knowing that everything will go well. I am hoping that the baby comes so quickly that I will not have time to worry about anything and overthink the situation. My fantasy is that I am at work and Anya calls me and says "Hey Dave, baby's here! Come see!"

Well, I hope to be a bit more of a participant than that.

Dave- I didn't know you guys had that extra room in the house. Where is that one? I thought I had seen them all. It must be in the attic somewhere. Unless you converted the bathroom today at some point. Anyway we're all looking forward to it and I know you're a little nervous but just calm down, goddammit, everything will be fine, alright? Okay?? Alright! Breathe! Like me! In out in out

don't forget to put some water on to boil and wash up some towels. maybe watch the home birth on gone with the wind. yeah, that would help.

Mary Ellen - I didn't see your post, but a screaming teenage black girl isn't what I have in mind for this birth! Lol. Although it would be fun - I can just imagine hearing : Lordse, we got to have a doctor. I don't know nothin' 'bout birthin' babies, Miss Anya!
