The final hours

I feel you dropping lower and lower.  My belly tightens up every 30 minutes or so, but there is no pain (yet).  I know you are just doing your thing, getting ready.   We are so happy that you're so close.  Your dad and I feel calm.  We watch movies, we hang out, we talk about how much we dreamed of this day.  Your grandmothers are both on the edge of their seats with excitement ...and your grandfathers too, they're just slightly less dramatic! :)    This is it, my son.  It's nearly showtime.  We just can't wait to hold you and see you and meet the beautiful soul being entrusted to us. 

Me, 39 weeks.
