    I know this is for guys only, so forgive me. Right now your wife feels like she's got a full size refrigerator in her uterus. She's uncomfortable yes. Love her to pieces, rub her feet, do everything you can. Even just hold her. It's horrible, the last months and weeks till the precious little one arrives. Tell her she's the most beautiful thing you have ever laid eyes on. She will nest, clean, arrange, rearrange, move, sort out, and just let her. It's all part of the process. Two days before my first daughter was born, I was the size of the Hindenberg, and I was lying on my side on the floor chasing dust bunnies underneath the bed. I cleaned THE TOOTHBRUSH HANDLES. If you are feeling like you might be washed, ironed, folded, or rearranged yourself, simply move aside quietly and let her move on. It will all be over with soon enough and then neither of you will get no sleep, so when she's sleeping 12 hours a day, join her. You will need it. God bless and keep us posted!
    Are we there yet?

    Is this your first child?? Congrats!

    I gained 50 pounds with both of my sons. (32 with my first, a girl)

    I advise lots of Ice Cream and empathy. Emphsis on the former.

    One thing I know is that when you are first preg, you just can't imagine going through labor and even are afraid of it.. but the time you are this far along, labor looks like a trip to wonderland! 'bring it on! :D

    Praying that your wife will get some decent sleep. (use big pillows and lay on her left side)

    Yes, to the pillows!! I used to make a "nest" so my back and tummy were supported and also had a place to put my knee up on while on my left side. Lying on your left side is preferable for circulatory reasons. If you're on your back too much while sleeping the baby can put too much pressure on the vena cava which is the large vein allowing blood to return to the heart from the lower extremeties (feet and legs). So you can avoid some swelling and improve circulation.........this is not to say you must not switch sleeping positions, but just a little info that may be helpful.

    For you, your wife and little one....2:

    I so empathize for you both. My doctor suggested taking benedryl when I was just a couple of months out from delivery so I could get some sleep. Tell her to call her doctor and ask about doing that and see what the doctor advises. Will be praying for you and your wife.

    a left over from my command and conquer and red alert
    rouge spear and ghost re-con days
    i have been thinking about changing it
    its 10 years now..........

    my sweety is fine, thank you

    she is getting more ''ready'' as i am too
    Poor girl, but we try to make it as comfortable as possible
    and we are grateful
    i my self am anxious and scared

    i feel like i am un employed but i am not
    if that makes any sense
    but we are hanging in there and are so happy and just can not wait to see Sam
