As we plan to have the baby arrive on his scheduled due date (our baby is going to be in the rare 7% who actually do!), today could very well be our last midwife visit. The internal sanctuary that baby has been enjoying for 39 weeks is about to be breached by the prying midwives, who plan to check out just how things are going in there today. Goody! At least I am comforted by the fact that them going in to check is going to be no where near as painful as him finally coming out (to say "what the hell is the poking about?")
Maternity leave has so far been highly enjoyable. I'd highly recommend it, without the hemorrhoids if you can manage it!
