    Cant sleep. Baby due saturday-

    Thinking of calling my boss in the morning and asking him to give me today and friday off (paid vacation) to get everything together for the new baby due saturday. Never realized how stressful the last few days before a baby comes are.

    Hopefully he has no problems.

    Good luck guys! Just remember when the baby arrives you won't be sleeping at all.

    Relax Joe, the hard part is up to her. Be there for her and give her plenty of support. Congrats & good luck. Both of you should be resting as much as possible. Do you know what you are having. Joe Jr. or Josephine???

    File a FMLA claim...it's unpaid but Federal Law requires they give it to you.

    hoping for natural birth but I guess c-section is more the norm for indused labor. We are having a girl.
