Only 100 days to go!!! That doesn't seem like that long! I am starting to get SO excited
OMG!!! We are getting close!
Joanie (33), DH (32), Thomas (13), Angel Baby 9/9/10, Katherine (21 months), Angel Baby 8/28/12, Baby #3 EDD 7/27/2013
Can't wait to meet our Baby Boy!
Katie you are officially in the double digits!!! OMG... I better get my butt in gear cause I'm only 22 days away from that I got to get things cleaned and organized before DH's surgery and the baby. AHHH
I'm boggling over here. I can't believe week 23 has begun! I'm a bit nervous because MIL keeps telling me DH was a month early. (There is no way. He was over 8 lbs and had no health issues at all -- and this is back before 40 weeks was the due date estimate. I think her due date was way off.) Maybe he was a week or two early. But what if LO decides to show even earlier? My sister is hoping I go into labor in early July, so she can be there for the birth. Otherwise, she has to wait a month for the baptism. I know she'd love to be here, but she can't make 3 road trips in the space of a month, and besides, I don't want to share. ;) Maybe by the baptism I will. lol
I'm not ready! I mean, I am. I have most of what I need for immediate stuff. Still need to get more 0-3 clothes and of course, diapers. But I have to leave something on my registry for my baby shower, right? (Geh, I'm not looking forward to that!) But emotionally, I don't know if I'm ready for the big arrival and then less than 2 months later, the big departure (hubby's deployment).

I know he's going to be an amazing daddy and the gap won't prevent that. Plus with Skype and everything, he'll be more present than my dad was ever able to be when he was deployed.
Take lots of pics and lots of video! Skype is an amazing thing -- modern technology is great, isn't it? I have a friend who started a long distance relationship with a guy who spent a lot of time in Iraq for his work, and they are now engaged, with the help of Skype!
No doubt it will be tough on you and DH to have the separation, but it will be such a great reunion when you are all together again. Will this be the last time he deploys?
To be honest, we have so many possibilities right now, since once he hits 20, he can apply for retirement. It's more than a bit overwhelming to think about the future.
I managed to schedule my next OB visit, so I should learn more about the "rules" of the sugar test in a few weeks! (And I got my Visual Field Test scheduled, so we can find out if I've suffered any vision damage since my last one. Being at risk for glaucoma really stinks.) I'm with JJorn on the fasting thing, it's so hard on me. If I just have to fast after drinking it, or even like an hour or two before, that would be fine, but all morning? *groan*
