I’m really hoping that Ellen follows Cooper’s lead and that February is baby month. At church on Sunday several people said things to me like, “Only a couple of more days, you can do it” and when I told a lady that my due date wasn’t until March she said, “Really? Sounds like your doctor did some bad math to me.” Fingers crossed for bad math indeed 🙂
Whether or not Ellen actually comes early, we did learn something from Cooper’s early arrival. It’s best to be prepared so you can just throw everything in the car and not be enduring an agonizing drive when you’re in transition (especially since the hospital isn’t quite as close this time around) or have the nurse asking you if you have a living will when you’re pushing. The baby is head down, I’ve got a list of people willing to watch Cooper, and the bags are packed so whenever the time comes we can calmly head to the hospital and hopefully enjoy at least a little time in the awesome jetted laboring tubs.
