I am due in 2 days. I have been teased with repeated bouts of pre-labor for two weeks now. I know I'm not "overdue", but each of my three older kids were born by now, so I was really hoping that he would have been, too. Most everyone else in my EC has delivered already and are holding and loving their precious little bundles. I am genuinely so very happy for them, but am sooo envious...every time another baby is born, my heart aches that much more. I have wanted and waited for this baby for sooooo long, and it feels like he is never going to get here! :( My anxiety is at an all-time high. I'm a mess and I wish that I were handling these last few days much more gracefully...but I feel like I will be in total emotional agony until I'm holding my son in my arms.

Thanks for listening.

I can't even imagine how long every day feels for you. Hang in there! Not long now! You know there are *things* you can do to put yourself in labor ;)

I hope he gets here very, very soon Emily! I know how you feel. I won't feel "safe" until this little guy gets here. I had my older soon @ 38 weeks & I will be 38 weeks this Monday, but I don't feel any indication that it will happen any time very soon. I know I will be in the same boat with feeling nervous about him getting here. I'm sorry you feel so anxious right at the end of your pregnancy. PAL brain stinks!
