No, not eggs. Me, I scrambled the past few days to get everything ready for our baby boy when the Dr. told me I was 3 cm dilated and 90% effaced. Ahhhh! I came home and immediately ordered a Pack n Play (which arrived the next day) so he had somewhere to sleep if he did, in fact, come 4 weeks early (crib will be here around xmas). The next few days we bought him a dresser, assembled it, gave the baby room better order, washed the baby clothes and blankets, finally got some nursing bras and such, put together some other things so the room wasn't so bare, oh and last but not least put together the hospital bag. Whew! I think we needed this little 'running start', as my Dr. put it, to help us (mostly me) realize time is running out!

I think after all we have done to prepare, I still cannot say I am ready for him to come. But, I am excited beyond words to have the little guy here.... and to have my body back. My life won't be completely mine anymore, but my body will. Errr, minus the feedings every 2 hours. Still, there are more things to do to put all my ducks in a row and thank goodness for the shower I have tomorrow. We are grateful for all the friends and family that have been helping us out. I think it's safe to say I have the first time mom jitters, if that is even such a thing. I think there should be some sort of word for it.

We sure are learning an important lesson through all of this. Our boy is a little trickster and April fools may be his favorite holiday. First, by posing as a girl for one of his first pictures and second, making us think he is coming much sooner than he actually is! :)
