Today was almost the day! Meghan called, she was at the hospital, she thought she had a leak in her bag of water, which would mean Go Time. So, I folded a ton of laundry, I still need to pack! As I was folding laundry, I got the text that the test was negative. Baby is not coming, yet.
I am going to be at the birth of my best friend's baby! This brings me tremendous JOY! I have never been at anyone's birth. I have two sons, but it is different to be a supporting actress, rather than the star of the show. I must admit, I am nervous. I hope I can be a good source of support and comfort. Plus, there will be lots of fluids. Will it be messy? Should I wear clothes that can get mucky? I hope I can be tough. I bet I can be. Meghan is the one who is going to be truly tough, I will be there to support her and Toby. I cannot wait! The anticipation is intense! She is going to call me when she knows baby is coming, then I am going to jump into my car and head to La Grande, a town in Eastern Oregon about 4 1/2 hours from here. She is 38 weeks and 4 days along. I could get the call any second.
Last night I dreamed that I was at camp, in Maine. I was freaking out because I had sloppily packed all of my things and I had not packed any underwear or socks. Horrible stress dream! Must pack my things for La Grande, NOW!
