What are some good snacks to eat while laboring? 
Hi Ladies, I thought it would be fun to share some of our birth dreams as we have babies on the brain. I've been having some intense dreams lately. In one I had a baby girl which was a shock in the dream (I'm expecting a boy) but I was so ecstatic that I cried and just adored her and couldn't believe my luck. But the strangest one I had a few nights ago. I birthed a baby boy with a HUGE nose that was very pliable and squishy. I was so sad for him and tried to roll it up...

Strangest nesting urge? Completely repainting and rearranging the kitchen, spontaneously. We decided to do it in the morning, talked about a color briefly and 30 min later I was back with paint and rollers.   What have you done the last week to prepare for baby? The kitchen. We are still working on the cabinets now but the walls look amazing. I also have been particularly diligent keeping the lower part of the house tidy and vacuumed.    What have you done that...
MIssMuffet, The way you prepare dates sounds sooo DELICIOUS! I'm going to try it.
