Conversations that can only happen right before you give birth...

Today I realized the power my phone calls have over those I love the most. Everytime I pick up the phone someone on the other end is thinking "this is it, she's ready". Today I called Jason and this is how it went:

Jason: (in a meeting, in a hush tone) Hi, are you having a baby?
Me: No
Jason: Then I have to go, I love you.

And scene.

The other day I called my parents , the tone in their voice was filled with anticipation as they tried to stay calm and wait for the reason I really called, which so far, has been nothing exciting.

And you can forget leaving a missed call on someone's cell phone, they are all sure that the moment is upon us and they are missing it.

It is actually a lot of pressure. I hate to dissappoint the one's I love.

Seriously we are all so excited we can not contain ourselves. So even if this baby does not feel quite like making its grand appearence just yet, the little peanut should at least feel loved.

Thank you all for being so excited and supportive. Now let's all pray that this crazy event goes down in the middle of the day when we are all awake and bright eyed and maybe you won't even be expecting a phone call from me...
