Tomorrow the midwives are coming over to check out our place and make sure we are all set up for the big day.  A trip to Target on Saturday let us gather the final implements of birthing.  The only thing left to pick up is the tub itself and we don’t really need that until September 9.  If she starts labor anytime before that we have to go to the hospital.  But once the 9th arrives, it’s clear sailing for home-birthing.

That’s in 8 days.  And that is crazy.  September is here!  We have been waiting for this month for so long that it is hard to fathom we have finally arrived.
