Want to know a sure fire way to go into labor in France?
8:46am on your birthday, son

Down to the wire

We are getting down to the wire and as I’ve known the date of our baby's arrival for a couple weeks now it seems my body has become attuned to that date and is preparing itself. I started having heavy cramps last night, which made me kinda frantic, like I couldn’t sit down for more than a few minutes, I kept puttering around the apt picking things up, cleaning things and throwing things away. It drove Julien bonkers, he said I was acting like I was out of my mind.  He sent me to the bathroom to take a hot shower. Things calmed down after that and then he put me to bed. I had really strange dreams last night and this morning I found that I had lost my mucus plug (Sorry, TMI!), which is a sign that things are moving right along. The cramps are back from yesterday, sporadic but very noticeable. But all this will be over and done with tomorrow afternoon right after 13h. We are so excited. We worked hard this weekend to put up shelves and organize things. I have one last task  to take care of today and that is putting away my clothes and knitting (done!!).  It’s hard to wait for something as big as the arrival of our baby.  The anticipation is just so tremendous... this is the biggest thing I've ever done in my life.

Tomorrow, I will be a mom.  Julien will be a dad. We will be three.

I wonder if I'll sleep tonight?  I have been obsess knitting for the last couple days. Anyone want a dishrag? :)  I think these will be great for bathing the babe when he gets home.  I feel like I should be doing something other than blogging right now. But there isn't anything to do really now...

Tomorrow, Julien and I will walk hand in hand to the clinic and welcome our son to this world.

Yeah, I'm so not sleeping tonight...
