idk if it means that im close or if im just crazy but i have been feeling more emotional lately. like months have gone by (basically since the first trimester) and i have been steady emotionally i stopped crying over little stuff. and now its like i dont even know WHY i feel sad, i just do and i feel like crying :( i want to think its just some pre-labor hormonal change but it could be that im just soooo eager to have her and disappointed that everyday she isnt here yet :( i know its lame because shes not even late. ahhh i dont know whats going on with me. anyone else feel this way before their LOs showed up????

To be honest, I was psychotically emotional about 5 days before and then it went away and I got this sense of calm the day before and day of.

Kind of the same for me. I got emotional the week before, but the day of, I was the most put-together person ever. It's like your body gets all of your emotions out early so that you can control yourself during labor. LOL!



That whole week before I delievered, I was watching "Baby Story" on TLC every morning, crying with every birth story. Then the morning I started labor, I got up at 7am (SO unlike me.. try Noon earliest)... and I tried to keep myself together all day. Of course my labor was 30 hours long... so I lost it the last 2 hours :P
