What, no baby yet?!

I can't believe I am writing this, but LBD (little baby Danielson) has yet to grace the world with his/her presence. We are now less than 6 hours away from the end of the day, and with that, the end of our "due date". Baby Danielson will officially be born past his/her due date. I never in a million years thought that would be the case, but I guess this baby is showing me whose boss already! Did you know that 80% of babies are born within 10 days of their due date (the 5 days before and the 5 days after) but that only 5% are born on their actual due date? Pretty crazy. Any it isnt looking like my baby will be one of them! As much as I have loved being pregnant, I am ready for baby to be here! Not only to meet this little bugger that has been rolling around inside of me for the last 10 months, but to be able to put a face to the feelings, a face to the names we have picked, and just to meet this little bundle that we already love so much.

Hopefully the next time I post it is with baby delivery news! XO!!

Ready, set, go!

I am ready to have this baby. More than ready. DESPERATE is more like it. I don't think there is anything else to do to get ready for the little one. Our bags are packed for the hospital (snack bag included), the car seat is installed, stroller is ready and waiting, the nursery is all done, the co sleeper is set up in our room (pretty sure the cats think it is for them), the pack n play was put together today by yours truly... what else? I'm at the point where I am creating projects for myself to keep myself busy. I guess it is good, but at the same time, I am ready to meet him/her!! I want to know if it is a boy or girl, and experience waht being a mommy is all about.

The doctor said it could be any day now. At my appointment last week, the baby's head was down, so we will see if I have made any progress tomorrow when I go in for my appointment. Keep us all in your prayers that Baby Danielson decides to grace us all with his/her presence sooner than later!
