I am OK; no baby yet.

I slept decently and haven't left my bed today for anything other than bathroom breaks.  I have intense pelvic pressure when I stand up, but at least no contractions today.  And so Charlie and I lie in bed and wait...

My husband called this morning because of the casualties.  He hadn't yet read my email and had no idea what was going on.  He said he would try to cash in some favors and get on an even earlier flight if he could.  We'll just see.  Now watch, the baby won't come for another month.

I told my husband that all that matters is that he comes home to us.  I said I will either welcome him home with the baby on the inside or the baby on the outside, but all that matters is that he's safe.

1 My heart goes out to the families, I'm glad you were able to talk to your dh this morning. I will be hoping that the little one stays put! I walked around for weeks at about 3cm, so you just might be able to make it. Take it easy!

2 Glad she's staying put.  Keep it up, girl.  Hoping husband makes it home for the birth.  Thinking of you often.

3 Blessings on you all, you are right, the most important thing is getting him home, he is a daddy either way, baby in or baby out.  
Did they give you an estimated size for her?

4 I am sooooo glad to hear he is ok! And I am also glad glad to hear your healthy pupa is wiggling and worming and ready to welcome the world and from the sounds of it Charlie is probably just as easer to play with his baby! Hold tough girl! I bet it is seeming surreal so close to the due date!

5 My heart aches for the losses and, at the same time, it swells for you.  Babies are totally awesome, especially those who are as loved and cherished since before they were ever a twinkle in your eye.  She's got good parents and I can't wait for her to meet you....Lots of good vibes your way.

6 You are doing a great job and I'm really proud of you.  These big transitions are so hard to wrap your mind around, even if everyone who is supposed to be here is here, let alone when travel schedules, potential early arrivals, and the like enter the picture.

Tell little Miss C. that if Auntie Melinda hears any more crazy talk about setting her own travel itinerary that she will be receiving a very stern talking to when we meet. (That is after I hold her, smooch her, shower her with gifts and try to stick her in my purse and take her home).

Sarah, I hope you're able to stay off your feet and rest until the baby arrives. Also, that your mom made it to town. Thinking of you, and also of the soldiers and their families in your husband unit.

9 My heart breaks for the two men in your husband's unit. 

Hope you are doing well.

You do not know me.

I have been a silent faithful reader for a long time.

Try to find some rest in the fact that "strangers" like me have been praying for you-baby-husband- unit.

Now we'll just have to pray harder.
