Like you said, at least you have a day and a half to prepare. He will share his birthday with my brother-in-law unless he decides to come even earlier!

Good luck! I will be praying for you!

Wow, you have such an amazing attitude about everything! What a shock to find out your baby is coming early! I'm glad you were able to get everything done and will be looking forward to reading your next few posts!

Good luck wrapping everything up and make sure you take some time for yourself before you newest little one makes his way into the world!

I'm so excited that he's on his way!!! Oh, I totally understand your concerns. . . but in the end, you'll have Baby Brother!!!! yay!!!

Well, it sounds like good news.

Best of luck to you and the young lad.

I know you must be freaking out and I feel bad especially when you said your family of 3 is being cut by a few days. But you are a wonderful mom, Luke is a wonderful dad and you will do fine with the new baby when all is said and done.
How exciting! He is on the way. I will be awaiting the good news and be sending good thoughts your way on Sat morning.

I am so excited for you all. I cannot believe how fast time has flown by. Seems like just last week these posts were about little Kara. Easy for me to say I know. My prayers are with you. Love to all, deb

You'll be fine-- no one's ever actually really READY for the baby to arrive. It's more like: "Person the battle stations!" dontcha think? It's great you have such a great support team at the ready and you're strong-- you'll be fine. Now go smooch that big girl! :)

I am excited too. Grandma and Grandpa could clean house(even if it was not in the regular Frema style.) We are looking forward to seeing you, Luke, and Kara today and to meeting Baby Brother. Take care.

I think every second- (or third-) time mom freaks out about leaving her baby to have another. I hope you aren't beating yourself up too much about that. How wonderful that Luke's parents can keep Kara at her own house and you don't have to worry about her being in a strange environment. We lucked out too, and after delivery I resolved to stop worrying and use my time in the hospital wisely (i.e. baby in the nursery at night and an Ambien for me).

Ok, now that I've explained to my husband why I'm CRYING... WOW! I'm glad you mentioned Emily--that was immediately who I thought of. Pre-eclampsia sucks and was responsible for my delivery at 36 1/2 weeks. Glad you're not to the "full-blown" stage. That's zero fun. I"m glad you'll get a little extra time to spend with Kara, even if it's being cut shorter that you'd planned. Sounds like she'll be in great hands with Luke's mom and dad. Can't wait to see pictures of your sweet boy. Happy birthing day! I'll be thinking about you.

Kara is going to be great! Playmates are her house to show around - she will get to come visit you and bb (I wonder if "the" name is the same?) She is going to have a blast- I am betting it will be harder on you than her.
Good Luck! I know you will do great. :)

Yowzah! It seems like just a week or two ago that Luke was frantically searching the drug store for those elusive tests.

If the choice is spending more time with Luke and Kara as a family of three or cleaning - I vote for spending the time with family. No one ever says I wish I had spent more time cleaning.

Oh, exciting! I've never been pregnant, but I can totally understand the conflicting emotions you're having. Good luck!

OMG! I can't believe your newest little one will be here tomorrow. I hope the very best for you and know you will be just fine. I can't wait to see your new baby!

Oh wow!!! Tomorrow! I'm so excited for you! I know how nervous you must be, but it will be over before you know it and you will be holding Baby Brother. Congrats to all of you and I hope all goes well!!

Congratulations! I'm very excited for you, even if you are a bit freaked out. And January babies are the best, so little brother was just making sure he got to be born accordingly :-) Fingers crossed for a smooth delivery this weekend!

You know the little buggers are in there saying- Go ahead! Plan my arrival. I dare you.

I'm sorry the end was so up and down stressful for you but I can't wait to see pictures of baby brother!!

Yep - Asher was 11 days early, and Lucy was 14 days early. It's the Parents.com curse! If you blog there, YOU GET PREECLAMPSIA!

Guess what though? You'll survive, you'll be totally fine, and so will Kara. The first few weeks are actually easier than the few weeks after that, so enjoy it! :)

YEA! Baby Brother! In less than 24 hours!

Yay! Good luck! :D

Oh my goodness! How exciting! I'll be thinking of you & your family. :)

I can't wait to see you tomorrow sister. I know you have a lot of thoughts going on in your head and I just want you to know I'm here for you and support you in whatever ways I can. I love you sooo much. Hope you're getting some rest tonight. xoxo

Heading to bed...just wanted to check in one more time to say (as we put it in the theatre world) Break a leg! Can't wait to see Baby Brother. Sending prayers and good wishes your way. Enjoy meeting your son! :)
