Start a pool on which area will be hit Labor Day Weekend?

Any baby sightings yet?
No! And, yes, we're ALL cranky........LOL.
Is she overdue?
It ATE another tropical depression?
No, due Friday, but having BIG TIME contractions since the middle of July; she's never gone this long before; usually 3 weeks early.
The doctor said it won't be long; she's so far down, there's nowhere left for her to go.......LOL.
lol--makes my bladder hurt just thinking about it.
Oh poo! They just keep coming, at least they weren't all aimed at us!!
heh--seems like we've had a long break from the action, from a relative standpoint.
We're DOOOOOMEEDDD! Thanks for the updates!
Yeah, I've really been savoring this lull, was hoping it'd extend for awhile, guess that idea was too good to be true, here we are at the end of August, peak of the season.
Women & minorities, etc, etc...
