I'm not a huge fan of this waiting game!

Congratulations, Kimbaby,

May your labor be soon and very short-----as my wonderful MIL used to say God doesn't give you any more than you can handle. Keep us posted!

Kimbaby I know how you feel. For some unknown reason, all my children were born near the November/December holidays. All the result of fertility drugs, so there was no planning involved. Just chance. By the time they were born, I was worn out. However, just holding and loving a healthy child was the perfect pay-off. You've been there before so you know you'll have to "steal" a few minutes of rest for yourself wherever you can find it. I nursed all of mine, which gave me some quiet rest time when I fed them. Especially in the wee hours of the morning. I loved the selfish quiet, snuggling when I put the baby in bed with me for that feeding. I can almost feel that wonderful feeling again. It was so sweet.

Thanks for the update, Kim! I was just thinking the other day that your due date must be close. I hope all goes well in the next 6 weeks and thta you can get a little bit comfortable so you can relax a bit!

Oh my Good luck. If you stick to your schedule, I'll be celebrating Mardi Gras in New Orleans when you give birth. I'll drink a toast to all of you!

Kimbaby - God Bless You for several reasons - five pregnancies - five boys - and still being sane. You will go straight to heaven - on a red carpet I might add. It will seem like forever, but before you know it Elijah will be here and feeling uncomfortable will be a thing of the past. Then you can try for a girl !
