I just saw on another post that baby #3 is to arrive soon. Just wanted to say I hope you have a speedy/easy delivery and congrats on the baby. You've been the best support for the other new moms and moms-to-be on here.

Awwwww....is right!! Congrats Stef on the upcoming arrival of your little girl. You must be so ready for this to be over. I was always so miserable those last few weeks, so I can imagine you are ready for this little girl to get here already. Have you picked out a name yet? And if I am not mistaken this is baby #3 right? What do the big siblings think of there soon to arrive sibling? I wish you all the best and BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU AND HUBBY!!!!

Nanners - I AM totally miserable. TOTALLY. And so Saturday can't come fast enough. We're going to name her Elisabeth and call her "Ellie". The kids are sooooooo excited to have a baby sister. Even my 2 year old who isn't quite sure what all of this means keeps telling me, "Baby disther come out your belly! So 'cited! YAY!" So, we're very much looking forward to her arrival. Yes, this is baby #3.

Patient - I'm so glad we opted for the pre-Christmas birthday too! Thanks for your advice on scheduling the date.

I'm a bit aprehensive about the c-sec, but I'm just going to pray really hard and I'll take all the well-wishes and prayers I can get from anyone else. LOL :)

I will keep you all posted on her arrival. I've got my fingers crossed that all will go smoothly. Thank you all SO VERY MUCH for thinking of me!!!

Only 3 more days to go, as if you aren't already counting the minutes:) Can't wait to hear all the details about little Ellie's arrival. Be sure to walk as much as you can afterwards, that helps to move the gas out of your system. Will definetly keep you, hubby and baby in my prayers. Who's keeping the other kids for you while you are in the hospital?

Hugs,
Gail *Nanners*
