Greatest with child

The onset of spring has always smelled like things ending to me. School year, winter, all the major graduation milestones, and now pregnancy and life as a working nonmother. The smell of endings is pleasant.

I'm due next Friday, friends. Or next Sunday, if you go by my first due date estimate which I know is off by anywhere from a week to a few days, or next Monday, if you go by the doctor's misreading of the chart that was based on my first inaccurate due date. But we'll have a baby by Monday the 16th for sure, since my doctors' office induces if you go a week past your (apparently arbitrary) due date.

So, potentially, this next weekend is my last weekend as a nonmother. I would say that we should party, but I'm usually quite sleepy in the evenings.

I feel pretty good, though.

It's an exciting feeling to know your little babyfriend will show up at any moment (with several hours of preliminary junk, of course). Best wishes for a good delivery, and a tolerable pregnancy finale.

Holy cow my friend. You are going to be a mom.

That is neat.

Summer I am so excited for you to have a baby boy! I have a baby present for you from assorted Reich-men. Also you should know that I made a blog, and a huge motivator behind that was so that I could stalk your blog more readily. :)

So it's been a week since you posted, but we have been in transit. Have you had your baby yet? Hope things are going well!!
