Well we've had an anxious couple of weeks with the midwife telling us she's surprised we haven't had the baby yet, etc. It's hard not to be able to plan much because you don't know if you'll be in the hospital tomorrow or not.
So anyway - we're ready anytime - to have this kid, just waiting...and waiting...
Yes - I am ready to have this baby. Yes, I am uncomfortable. Yes, we wish we knew when, too. No we don't know why we haven't already.
As a general rule, BTW, if you know someone who is due to have a baby and they aren't scheduled to have a C-Section or be induced, don't ask the WHEN they are going to have the baby. It's just annoying. I've been very surprised how many people ask me that and actually expect a time frame or something. It's quite strange.
So instead of questions, just offer your support and say, hang in there or you're looking forward to meeting him/her. That'll do just fine. :)
