Oh, who am I kidding? I want to have this baby the second he or she is ready to come out, whatever day that may be. I don't think I've ever been more anxious to meet someone.
I spent some time working on a labor playlist this morning. I've had a basic one on my ipod for a week or so but I had some free time this morning so I added a bunch of songs to it. It's kind of a tough project because I have no idea what I'll be in the mood to listen to during labor. Will I want songs I like that feel familiar and comforting? Or is it better to load it up with new music picked just for this occassion (and never to be listened to again) because I'm going to have negative associations with all of those songs from here on out? I'd hate to ruin some of my favorite tunes by having permament memories of contractions attached to them. I ended up doing a mix and I figured I'll just skip over anything that doesn't sound perfect in that moment. It'll probably be a moot point because I'll get there and not feel like listening to music at all. Oh well, prepare for every possibility, right?
