Baby is due one week from today. Anyone else this close and finding that every single thing is making you stop and think “is this it?” or “please let this be it?”
We just found out yesterday that DH’s six-month tour starts in less than a month, rather than in the 7 or 8 weeks we thought we had… so I’m really hoping baby makes her arrival sooner rather than later so he has some time with her (and I have at least a few weeks with support and help from him!).
Please cross your fingers for me Bees…and send early-labour thoughts! 🙂

Eeeeeek! So exciting! I completely understand how you feel! I was in labor with contractions lasting 1-2 mins and 8 mins apart, dilated to 5 and effaced for almost a week! But it will happen soon and before you know it you’ll be holding your little one 🙂
I’ll send good thoughts your way for an easy and healthy labor and delivery! And that your husband has plenty of time with the baby 🙂

Congrats! I hope your baby comes soon too, for both you and your DH.
My due date is Sunday (or next Saturday, depending on which one they decide to use at the moment). I’m basically one big contraction at this point. Just hanging around with my stomach doing crunches on it’s own. It is making some progress down south so at least that’s something. But yeah…..every time something slightly painful goes on I think maybe this is it, but it’s usually just her head butting me. My dog has been very cuddly today, like wants to be on top of me, so now I’m even interpreting dog code as a sign.

@Sulli301: thank you!! Though I really, really hope I’m not in labour for a week… you must have such patience!!
@troubled: thank you…and I hope the same for you! Totally understand thinking the dog is trying to tell you something. Every time one of our kittens comes near me I’m thinking “Ok, he/she knows, now just waaaaait for it……” ha ha! I do think they’ll know before I do – animals are awesome like that.
