I have to confess that it kind of does feel like I have a bomb that will explode at any moment. Every time I get a twinge I think that my water is going to break. Hopefully it will - in February. Early February :)

9 Months (36-40 weeks)
Halfway through the ninth month, your baby will be considered full term.
Your baby weighs about 6 to 8 pounds and is approximately 17 - 20 inches in length. Even though your baby is gaining rapidly, you may find that your weight remains the same. Some moms even report dropping a pound or two in the last month. During the month, your baby will grow 2 more inches in height and 2 ½ pounds in body fat. He should be in the head down position by now. Some babies drop more into the pelvis in the 38th week in preparation for delivery. This should take some pressure off your ribs, but will add some to your bladder. At nine months, the placenta weighs in at 1 ½ pounds and the umbilical cord is over two feet long.

In one dresser drawer I folded the Newborn onesies and pant/jacket outfits.
And on the changing table I gathered all of the diapers and organized the bins to hold blankets, wipes, genie refills, etc.
My "plan" is to naturally go into labor and spend several hours at home before going to the hospital. With Noelle we went in at 6am when contractions were 5 minutes apart and spent the entire day there - she was finally born at 9:58pm. Sixteen hours of labor at the hospital again? No thanks.
But once again that's more like a wish - only God knows what's going to happen and I trust in Him completely. Overall I just want baby out safely and whatever needs to be done for that to happen is going to be okay with me in the end.
I'm working on a list of things that still need to be done:
*Finish the hospital/home visitor favors - and when I say finish I mean actually do them.
*Pack Noelle's bag for Grandma and Grandpa's house
*Get a few final items for baby brother (pacifiers, swaddle blankets, hamper)
*Pack my bag for the hospital
