Well considering I am going though the SAME thing I don't have any great advice besides continuing to obsessively nest, clean, organize and trying to keep your self busy. I know that I am ALWAYS getting online and reading things about Labor/Delivery, what to expect what not to expect, things I NEED, things that I don't need, reading others birthing stories or something! Haha I have two weeks left until my due date and it seems like it is taking forever!!! It really sucks. So starting on Monday I have plans or an appointment every day of the week to keep my mind off of the fact that I am going into labor. Then next Sunday when I hit 39 weeks I am screwed!! Bahahaha because I have NO plans for any days that entire last week! Ugh. I just want to go into labor now and see my baby! =P
