I wish you a speedy and easy labour and delivery.

During the labour and birth of each of my 5 kids I kept saying to dh, I don't want to ever have to do this again and each time he said 'you don't have to'.
The moment you hold your baby you forget any pain and discomfort you may have had and are just amazed at the miracle in front of you.

I remember the birth of our 5th child. We already had 4 boys and we were convinced that we would have another boy. When Fiori was born the delivery room was completely still except for the voice of the midwife who just whispered, it's a girl.

As the previous poster said, cherish every moment you can with your little one, they grow up SOOOO fast.

Hope you have a good labor. A baby is a wonderful thing. They really are life changing. You will fall in love as soon as you see that beautiful face. Homemade wipes are easy to make. Triple paste is great for diaper rash. Best of luck to you and your family.

Wishing you a safe and wonderful birth experience.

My FV shower present for you is part of a nursery rhyme

"The cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow,
for children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow.
So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep.
I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep."

and another from The New Adventures of Mother Goose gentle rhymes for happy times a book that was give to me when my son was born:

"Diddle diddle, dumpling, my son Scooter,
played around with my computer.
He pressed the buttons, he hit the keys,
and now it only prints Chinese."

Wishing a safe and happy birth experience for the both of you!

A few tips from my mom. (I was talking to her when I first read this earlier and she had 4)

Don't go to the hospital too early, when the contractions are little and light, eat something and drink A LOT. Don't worry, you'll know when it's REALLY time.

Grandparents and family really want to help in the beginning.. let them, you need sleep anyway!

Don't try to get back into your "normal" clothes right away, you'll feel like a cow. Go back to your "first stage" maternity clothes. Besides you won't care if those get ruined with spit up.

When someone says, "what can I do to help"... don't hesitate, tell them laundry or dishes.

And my lone little tip (I only had 1)

There are two types of parents..perfect and sane.. choose now and stick to your guns :)

Wishing you a delivery as smooth and pain free as mine was! (even without the epidural - I had hot baths, they beat everything in pain relief!)

There will be a lot of extra laundry, not so much from Baby Nada as from you. You expect her (now, why do I use this gender??) clothes to get spit on etc, but your clothes will probably catch more of whatever fluids leave Baby Nada........
