Waiting- noun- a period of waiting; pause, interval or delay.
Adjective- serving or being in attendance
Idiom- In waiting, in attendance, as upon a royal personage

So, if this kid comes out a damn king, then this will all make sense.  Because that's all we are all doing around here.  Waiting on him!

Anyone that has kids knows how this goes.  Every single time I make a phone call I am greeted with, "are you in labor?!"  Swear to god, even the Terminix man.

And heaven forbid I make a phone call and NOT leave a message.  Then it is the child birth apocalypse!

And everyone is giving me the dates that work well for them if I go into labor.  Mom has inventory, mother in law has jam packed work weeks, husband has all kinds of important stuff.

You know when is good for me?


But I did it.  I ate my way OUT of a C-Section.  Which means that I get to birth my bebah naturally again.  Which I am super stoked on.  So when he gets here, he gets here.

Just, please....please little bebah bean, come before the 27th.  Mama's got class!

And I swear to god, if you wait until the ONLY day that I cannot possible have you, then I will be pissed!  And that will just set the tone for the rest of our relationship. And if you come out making your middle brother look like HE is eager to please, well sir....I will have words for you-  Your Highness.

I keep checking in here for news...your title makes me think of Carly Simon and the old Heinz ketchup commercial. Good luck to you and the baby!

Oh, I can feel it....this boy is gonna be a trip! I'm so happy you're almost done. AND, after two, I assume there's not too much fear of the unknown as labor and delivery goes. Always a bonus. I can't wait to see that little cutie! Keep us updated.

My husband asked me to please give birth to our youngest on the 7th of December because he didn't want to miss work and it was a Saturday. I said, "Well, that's fine with me because my childhood sweetheart was born on the 7th of December and I'll never forget his birthday." Sure enough, the kid came on the 7th. No wonder I like him so much.

Hope you don't have to wait much longer. Those last days when you feel like you're just listening to the tick, tick, tick noise are really annoying.

It got so bad, everyone asking if I was in labor we would have to say "no she's not in labor yet" instead of hello for every phone call we made or received. I don't know why everyone would ask. Like we had the baby three weeks before and just forgot to tell everyone! - Jen

That's great you don't have to have a C-section. I know my wife was dying in those last few weeks. Torture. Hang in there! I'm watching twitter for the news...
