Christmas Baby?

I went to my doctors appointment today and she walks in laughing that I am still pregnant. She says, "I bet you make it to your due date". I wanted to throw my torn up, page missing, crumpled magazine at her. She then does "the exam" and says, "hmmmm...actually you might not make it to your next appointment and you will have him within the next week". I am 90% effaced and 2 centimeters dilated. Hopefully there is no underlying false hope there, but I have to admit that I am really, REALLY, excited. Anyone have bets for a Christmas baby?

It is so cruel that you've been made to expect this baby for so long. I think you and Melissa are going to have these babies very close together! If only you were in the same city you could be in the hospital together like me and Janelle. I can't wait to meet Jack!

WOW! Nature plays a huge role and it could just be anytime! My bet is you go into labor on Christmas day, and deliver the next!

Good luck and keep up updated!

Wow! Let's see - are there four mission trips leaving in four-five days, a guy coming to buy the drums, Jonathan on a road trip, Paul and Janet out of town? Yep - I think that it will be this weekend!

Like Amanda said, I wish so badly you were close and I could just walk down the hall back and forth all day to visit you and Melissa, like you did with me and Amanda!! I can NOT wait to get the phone call that this is IT!!!! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!

too exciting!! lots of laughing, walking and a foot massage (worked for me!) You MUST let us know when Jack arrives (ps hmmm if he is born say at 6.01pm houston time on Christmas eve...technically that's 12.01am Christmas morning here so it could be a Christmas baby depending on the time zone you choose!?) hee hee...take care and enjoy the last few days as the 3 of you....

Because there is no follow-up post, I am hoping that you've had the boy by now!

Merry, merry Christmas!
