Counting weeks in single digits!

Oh yes! We are on to single digits in the countdown of weeks. Of course that is supposing that this little girl takes after her dad and arrives on time or a smidge early.
Since I was given more of a due window as opposed to the singular due date, it does make calculation of her expected appearance a bit more difficult. Our original figuring of a timeline said one date; the first ultrasound said a different date and a later ultrasound went with another; all within a total span of about a week. 
In an effort to be optimistic I am counting down to the soonest date possible. That it is a little less than 9 more weeks, when it really could be closer to 10 on the long end of our due window, without even adding any days for being overdue.
Now, before all the experienced moms start explaining to me that “baby will come when she is good and ready….” and a bunch of other sage advice on the timing of labor, please just let me say I know this timeline could be far from accurate. However, I would much rather be ready (as one can be in this situation) a bit early over scrambling to gather diapers and car seats at the last minute.
Your input/opinions/guidance is, as always, still welcomed. Just don’t burst my happy little “less than 9 more weeks” bubble!

    You look absolutely beautiful! I'm so excited for you!

  2. Countdown is ON! You were an "on the ultrasound due date" baby! Oddly you and I are usually a teensy bit tardy! I was born a week early, maybe we are just making up for our initial timeliness!
