The third child is due in five days. But as usual, I'm not experiencing any of the "my body is getting ready" stuff. Unless you count that I took a two-ish hour nap already today & it's only 11:30.

Anyway, I keep wondering how this delivery will compare with the first two. Primarily, will it involve pitocin (which is evil)? And will I get a finally get a labor & delivery nurse who believes me when I say "I'm ready to push (Cami)/get an epidural (Graham)" instead of telling me, "The monitors say you haven't been contracting powerfully enough to do those."

But, on the theme of thirds, this morning my mom emailed Cami three photos of me at age three. Does anybody think any of my kids look like me at all?

Wow Starr... I can't believe that you are almost ready to meet Rose. It blows me away that you are going to be a mother of three. You are so amazing! Totally the coolest gal I know..I hope this labor is easier than your others have been.

Do you think your kids look at all like you? Mine don't look like me, but a lot of people say they look like John.

I hope your L&D goes well. If you are having an epidural pitocin isn't so big of a deal. Good luck!

I can see a little bit of both Cami and Graham in your baby shots. How cute you are!! Do you still like to read Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel? It will be a delight to see who Rose looks like.
