In the afternoon, we got a phone call with an update on her doctor's appointment. The report was that labor is imminent, and the doctor thinks she will deliver this weekend. Aaaahhhhh!!!
So we wait, cell phones close by, for the call telling us to hightail it to the hospital. We have the car seat installed (the back seat of my Prius is now totally full of car seats), a bag packed and a going-home outfit picked out (hand-me-down from Baby X yes, it's starting already, although I have my doubts whether he actually wore this one). Oh, and a name for a boy and a girl. The naming process has been really interesting this time around, mostly because we have been thrown into such a whirlwind. Names that we thought we liked the last time around don't seem to fit. But, we managed to come up with two that we like after scouring lists last night! S's parents and sister are on-call to take Baby X when we have to go to the hospital and if we get the call in the middle of the night we'll probably wait until the early morning to head out so that we don't have to wake them up too early. And that work and lists I thought I have to get done before going on maternity leave? Mmmm... questionable at this point. :)
