Looks like today is the day. Jordan's Birth Day. I am a mess of emotion.

The hospital called this morning to let us know they haven't forgotten about us, they are really swamped in L & D this morning and they will call back around noon. They also wanted to make sure I was eating my breakfast. Awww.

I am on the verge of tears. I'm so excited but also scared too. I feel like barfing but I won't because my toast was pretty good.

I can't believe this day is here. I really, truly can't. It feels like only last week that I got my positive pregnancy test and now I am about to have her.

Julie is so scared for me. She was crying in the night for me, she said. She doesn't want me to be sick or in pain or bleed. We spent some time together this morning in prayer and I also slipped a note of encouragement into her lunch bag for today. Sam was going around the house singing this morning about how "Jordan's going to be born today!"

It's a strange feeling.... everything that is "normal" is about to change. The family Ian and I have nurtured is about to change. We will soon have a little tiny person to bring into the fold, someone who will have her own qualities and opinions and mind.... I just can't wait to meet her.

I am overwhelmed at how many phone calls, emails, facebook messages, you name it, I've received this past week. Each of them full of love, support, encouragement and prayer. I have a wonderful family and circle of friends. I am richly blessed.
