5 hours until blast off

Hey everyone ... well it is almost 11 and I am to report to the Hospital at 4. I am not nervous about the birth ... that is what our bodies are made for. i am not nervous about the pain, that is what DRUGS are for ... but I am nervous about not getting to eat for HOURS AND HOURS and I am nervous about bringing baby home! I have prepared for her arrival at home for 8 LONG (itchy, swollen, tired, cranky, sleepless, ... most of you know) months, all very worth it may I add. But why do I still have this sickening sense that I AM NOT READY?! I read in one of my many "get ready" books that this is normal and that I wouldn't be a "normal" woman if I weren't second guessing myself! I guess that is true cause I have second guessed just about all MAJOR decisions I have made in my life. I think that is a prerequisite of being a woman.

Anyway to stop the rambling ... in hopefully 24 hours or so I will be a Mommy ... I will have the entire package ... the hubbs, the car, the house, the job and the baby! WOW it all seemed so much more promising when I was 5. HAHA no really I am excited and I know that there will be hard days, good days and sad days ... all very welcome. I am going to be a MOMMY! Well wish me luck and I will soon see you back here ... pictures and update as soon as I can!

Oh how exciting Kim!!!

I hope your labor and delivery are a smooth ride. You're going to do just fine I'm sure. Just remember to breathe today and enjoy it.

I'll be thinking about you all day...

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!! Can't wait to hear how it all went. WELCOME TO THE MOMMY CLUB!!!!!!!!!!
I'm sorry we didn't get to meet you while we were there. I totally understand though. Next time for sure! Plus, should you make it to ATL again we're only a phone call away!

Hey, Does anyone know if Kimmy had the baby?

I mean, I'm sure she has by now, but I keep checking her blog & myspace page for updates, & so far, nothing.

I'm sure they have much better things to do then get online, but if anyone knows any updates, please leave a comment.

CONGRATS to the KEMPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope your family and new family member is doing great! I am a mom of two and I don't remember how I found your blog, but I kept reading because you listed Nascar as one of your interests. I am a closet Nacar fan!
Hope you are doing great!
