New Haven 20k.
For whatever reason I can't figure out how to add a titile to my posts...it simply doesn't appear as an option for me, so I have to create my own. Anyhow, Josh raced today in New Haven, Connecticut. This is his first race since the Olympic Trials and since his stress fracture healed up. Josh ended up 2nd today with a time of 59:58! He's gearing up for a few more races this fall...and possibly a marathon. However, his two options for marathons are Chicago and NY. Chicago is October 16th and NY is November 2nd...so either right before I'm due or right after. I'm due Oct. 28th. What would you do?

That is a tough one. Both of my kids came a week to two weeks early, but I know a lot of people who never go into labor and have to be induced. Good luck with your decision!

Definitely the earlier one! It's fairly rare to be that early - especially with your first - and NEITHER of you would want him gone with a brand new baby in the house!! BTW ... LOVE the pictures and WAY TO GO JOSH :-)

Congrats Josh! I don't really have baby advice yet, but were you guys on time for your mom? Maybe that would help...

I agree with mamasylvia and would pick the earlier one. The first few weeks after birth can be a little rough, and you don't want to be on your own.

That's a tough one. That boy's gonna come whenever the heck he wants to. I'd also have Josh go to the earlier one though. Chances are you wont go that early....as much as you don't want to hear that! When you get closer to your due date you'll get checked to see if there's any progress. That will help you decide too. You'll deffinetly want him there after though!
Congrats on the race Josh! We miss you guys!

definitely the 16th, the earlier one because even if you deliver early, josh will have a hard time leaving you and your new baby!

I say go with the earlier one. If he has to leave you and the baby at home, I'll come over and help you :)
