Week 37: The countdown is on...

So my little ticker at the top of my blog says I have 19 days to go until my due date. How the number managed to sneak into the teens is beyond me...I have been receiving many emails lately of friends checking in on me, and giving me encouragement that the last month drags on, but the baby will be here before I know it...I almost wish I felt that way, but the last month (and the whole pregnancy, to be honest) has flown by! I still have so many things to do that I feel I will be lucky if I have one bored day before the baby comes...I hope I get one bored day! I guess we shall see...it might depend also if I go into labor early, on time, or late...

Speaking of which--cast your vote on my due date poll to the right! And feel free to leave comments on this entry of what exact day you think the baby will be born on. If you are right, you just might receive a prize of some sort...As for me? I feel the baby is going to come fairly on time. Everything seems to be progresses exactly on track for the week I'm in, so I am just assuming the baby will come around his scheduled due date. Again, we shall see...

(Man, I am really overusing the ellipsis in this entry!)

One of the fun things I've done is choose a "coming home" outfit for the baby--an adorable outfit from Mike's family and a cute baby bunting my mom made (we'll see how cold it is). We also have several beautiful blankets to choose from, a car seat swaddler (from my sister-in-law), a baby book (from my parents), and a handprint book (from friends). The nurses have mentioned several times to bring a baby book and they will happily put the baby's prints into it.

Okay, back to my "to do" list...

Oi vey, we need to get those baby seat bases installed ASAP...!!

But yup, I can't believe how close we are. Every time someone asks at work, "When is the due date?" I can't help but laugh with excited nervousness..! Awesome, awesome, awesome. :D

I am going to take a stab at a BBB birthday prediction.

I am going to guess April 17th.

My gut tells me you'll go a little early :)

Mike: and now when people ask for the due date, you don't think about some long-away date, but in actual days of the week; Sunday, Monday, Tuesday...

I'll say 18th myself :)
