Sorry. I suppose I really have no room to complain. The due date isn't actually until Monday. It just feels overdue because my last baby was 4 weeks early and fully developed--no extra hospital stay, no oxygen tubes or anything. Besides, sometimes it just feels better to whine about it, doesn't it? If she doesn't come soon though I am going to have the cleanest house/yard on the block! Ha!

My first child I was in the room, holding onto a leg, giving encouragement, loving every second of it, wishing I had owned a cam corder at the time.
By the time the third one came around I was sitting next to her watchin TV...

The first child she was there overnight in labor, it had to be induced, and technically took 11 hours... the third one was born less than two hours after she got to the hospital and about three from the time her water broke.

I wouldn't say she had it easy (there certainly was pain involved), but much easier than some experiences apparently! I consider that a blessing.

Being 9 months pregnant gives you a pass to complain all you want about anything you want!!! But seriously, if you are compulsively cleaning house, lots of women say that "nesting activity" happened to them just before their baby was born. (Sadly, it only happened to me twice.)

I'm still on maternity leave!!!! :) Haven't worked (ok full time) since before she was born.
Hey Suzie - you're still recovering! You should be on maternity leave. And I'm sure the whole Lego incident set your recovery back a couple more years!

4 c-sections??? You are Mother of the Year in my book! Heck, Mother of the Century! I really don't know if I would have been brave enough to do it more than once.
