  • What to do? I'd concentrate on something that you won't be able to do once the baby arrives: watch a non-kid-friendly movie, read a book, paint your nails - heck! even enjoy all the times you get to pee ALONE, without having to lug a bouncy seat or play mat into the bathroom first. For the pain, walk, walk, walk.

    Why does it feel so far? You're like a small child who is really aware of Christmas for the first time. It will NEVER come. Christmas Eve is the longest night of the year when you are waiting for the "big event" - just as the coming days will be some of the longest in your adult life.

    Congrats! You're almost there. Relax, enjoy some peace and quiet, do something for just YOU. You have 18 years to do things for the baby - including laundry and decorating.
