Can you believe it? I'm going to have a daughter tomorrow. OH MY GOODNESS!!

I've been on an anti-depressant now for close to 18 mos and a couple days ago my OB said to stop taking them. Apparently the one I was one transfers to the milk supply and I need a good 4 or 5 days to get it out of my system. I think that may be contributing to the shear terror I'm feeling today.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not overwhelmed by the idea of 5 kids. I welcome that. I honestly believe if you can handle 2 you can handle 3. If you can handle 4 you can handle 5 and so on. I'm scared to death because of the pain I'm about to endure.

They say you forget and that's why women have multiple children. I clearly remember desperately wanting out of my own body. She's worth it and I'll do it and it will all be great this time tomorrow. In the mean time I'm going to take some Tylenol PM so I can actually sleep tonight and rest in knowing tomorrow morning the excitement will kick in and I'll make it through just like I did 4 other times.

I'm praying for you that all will go well and have as little pain as possible. Enjoy your last full night of sleep. God Bless!
