Happy Friday! I can't believe I've updated every day this week. I guess that's what happens when there's nothing to do but wait. This morning, my inbox was flooded with a bunch of emails wishing me good luck for tomorrow. I got emails from friends, web-buddies, and even strangers! The most touching one was sent by Aiyah...she wrote: "I think most of us won't be able to get an update from you in the near future but just wanted to let you know that you're in my thoughts and I'm sure you and Aric will be the proud parents of a healthy happy baby soon!"
I don't know if it's hormones or what, but I burst into tears after reading that one. I'm overwhelmed...anxious, scared, excited, happy, touched, etc... It felt good to let it all out, and felt even better that no one was here to witness it. I think because in my mind, childbirth and parenthood is such a natural thing. For me to cry is being wimpy. People have been doing it for centuries! But we're all in this stage of time where it's all about meeting the emotional needs, understanding, and coddling the mother. It's turned very psychological. It wasn't always like that, and I certainly wasn't raised that way. But after taking all those 'baby' classes, it definitely rubbed off. Anyhow, THANKS, everyone for the well wishes! It really does mean a lot to me. =D

I have nothing much to update on today. I spent most of the morning cleaning house, talking on the phone, preparing the baby's stuff, responding to emails, and waiting for my friends to arrive. I don't know when I'll be able to update next, but stay tuned....

Have a great weekend!
