We're in the final stretch. The room is ready, and I'm thinking we're up to the challenge. There's only one thing...

Ali mentioned that she had hoped she would be one of those pregnant women who "glowed" throughout her pregnancy.

This morning we met with our birth caregiver. After a brief chat, they put Ali on the table to take her blood pressure and then listen to the kid's heartbeat. As she lay there with her red hair shining, looking exactly the same as she always does, except for a round 8-month bulge where her belly usually is, it hit me: she is glowing.

Nearly 8 months down, and just one to go. And she has been, simply, a complete champion.
