38 weeks Pregnant with our Fifth

Today, I'm 38 weeks pregnant with our fifth child.
I've gone late with each of my other children.  I'm assuming this one will be the same.


In case you're interested (you totally are, don't deny it), here's a short version of my labors with my other children:

Child #1:  11 days overdue, 23 hour long induced labor with epidural and Pitocin, threw up, no fun. 8lb 15oz Girl.

Child #2:  2 days overdue, 7 hour all-natural labor with no pain meds.  Almost bit my husband's finger off - most horrible pain EVER (why'd I choose to experience the full effects of the Fall of mankind??!! see Genesis 3:16) - 9lb 2oz Boy.

Child #3:  One week overdue, 5 hour induced labor with epidural and Pitocin.  Went well.  8lb 2oz Boy.

Child #4:  Two days overdue, 5 hour induced labor with epidural and Pitocin.  Went well.  8lb 4oz Boy.

Child #5:  ???


So, we shall see when this little one wants to make her appearance.  And in the meantime, I'll be hanging out...
just waiting on this baby.

Um, you know I'm fairly obsessed with birth and stalking women at the end of their pregnancies. ;)

Your comment on #2 made me laugh. I cursed Eve during the last labor > no really... http://www.heatherhaupt.com/2011/10/26/greta-birth-story/

I've had two epidural/Pitocin babies and 2 natural. I prefer natural, but only because I've been able to have them at home. so I guess it would be more accurate to say I prefer the comfort of my own home.

Can't wait to hear that your little bambina is nestled in your arms!
