I haven't done anything elective. I am really excited, though, too, so I understand. I suppose I think that so many women have had to wait the whole 40 weeks, that I can, too. Plus, we got to see him at half-time and that is a real gift.
Plus, I'd rather blow that cash on a new-to-me kayak. Or some cloth diapers. Or a new set of Oakley's. Or just put into savings so my leave without pay won't hurt so badly.
But I understand. : )
