Getting excited/nervous

Ahhhh! Its getting so close to baby time! My midwife wants me to have everything ready for our 36 week appointment, which is next week -the day before I actually turn 36 weeks. And while she said she'd like baby to wait until 37 weeks, she also said that if baby comes a few days before then that's fine too (I have a history of early babies).

I didn't realize that its so close. I freaked when I saw that my birth supplies would take 10 days to get here :eek: Why did I wait so long to order?! Luckily, they were shipped today, so hopefully will be here in time. I still haven't ordered the pool liner and have no idea how long that will take. We already have most of our misc. supplies that we were supposed to gather. So yeah, I'm starting to get a little freaked out -but totally excited at the same time!

I've been having a ton of contractions, along with pressure against my cervix. I feel my body gearing up! And I have been soo tired the last few days. I just really hope I make it to my "safe" date, which is sometime around the 19th (36w,4d). I really want to have this baby at home!
