In 5 hours I will be on my way

to the hospital to have this little guy!!!

I spent 3hrs at the laundromat last night so at least everyone has clean clothes for a while. The house isn't in the best shape but I'm ignoring it. It's a safe guess that they'll make sure things are presentable when I come home. I managed to set up the baby's things (carseat, bed...that I probably won't even use lol, and playpen/dome. Baby's things are packed and ready for me to throw into a bag.

My cell phone decided it wanted to die this week so I needed a new one. Tom and I just got back from a run to Walmart...the most dreaded place on earth as far as he's concerned. Nevermind I got a lot of goodies for him to enjoy while I'm sucking on ice chips. Yeah right.

I have most of my things packed, although it's not a lot. I'll wear something there, use their gowns while admitted and my going home outfit is what I wore there. I thought I'd get something to distract Tom and I while we wait, and wait, and wait. It didn't happen. Guess we'll have to talk to each other(oh the horrors!) or watch tv.

I had a great day with my mom, sister and aunts at the play (saw Menopause, the musical). My parents and I went to the chinese buffet afterwards.

Hopefully Tom and I aren't too exhausted now to enjoy a bit of couple time. Liz and Carrie went and took Danielle out of our room before we got home from the store.

Danielle has been a true "soon to lose baby of the family status" kid with lots of lap and cuddle time requests. I'm loving it of course, nothing like being smothered in toddler kisses and hugs. Everyone is excited and keeps mentioning it at random. It's not far from my mind even if no one mentions it. Sitting at dinner I had to apologize for suddenly reciting my todo list aloud. It was quite obvious I was distracted. I'm excited, nervous and tired. Of course staying up until 4am watching birth videos last night isn't helping. *blush*

Part of me still can't believe I'm going to try to have a baby tomorrow!!! I was feeling a bit off today with a backache and achiness that MIGHT'VE been tiny contrax. Guess we'll see if things have changed when I get examined tomorrow morning.

I'll try to call Catherine/mabear later in the evening to update her (or after the baby is born....whichever comes first).

Here's my last belly shot. (38w3d) It's sad to think I'm gonna lose my special little surprise. (I'm so greedy, I don't want to share!)

Good Luck! I can't wait to hear how it all turned out! And to find out what his name is! You can bet I'll be bugging mabear all night until you call her!
