36 weeks

My home page greeted me this morning with:

"You are in your 36th week, 27 more days to go"

OMG. 4 more weeks and we meet our darling Peanut. Or really anytime before then, whenever he decides he is ready to come out. :)

All these months of excitement, anticipation, learning, reading everything about parenting/babies, classes, chat boards.... still does not prepare you for caring for a new fragile life.

I'm afraid.... very afraid.... I hope maternal instinct kicks in as they say it should.

***Deep breaths***

Question of the day: Guess when the baby will arrive! :) Our estimated due date is Feb 17. Will peanut be early, on time or late....

I was near panic attacks at 36 and 37 weeks, not feeling at all ready for baby to come. Now at 38 weeks, I'm feeling a bit more calm and prepared. Good luck!! =)

Relax.

Maternal instinct is just another way to say "love."

Trust me...it will kick in.

Marcy -- I just love your belly shots! :) I guess I am just panicking and I hope I can relax and enjoy the time with DH before the baby arrives. :

SWf42 -- Awwww... thank you! I needed to hear that! :)

Feb 14th. I like to think it will be a Valentine's baby. Whenever it comes- it will be lucky to have you as a mom.
