I'm hoping someone can help!!!!! I'm 39 weeks today and can't get my little one to stay LOA. She prefers ROA and I work so hard on Optimal Fetal Positioning. I only sit on a birth ball or taylor sit, sleep on my left side, see a chiro, cat back a couple times a day, and I'll get her into position to only have her roll. I'm doing hypnobabies (affirmations/visualizations), but this is a huge ordeal for me - I had 45 hours of extreme back labor with my oldest and don't...
Thought it was Caden as well - sorry.

If you've already had yours done, do you have any examples you want to share? I've spent all day looking at various local photographers'...

We have a medium sized rubbermaid box to store the sand box toys under the sand box table. We have a large plastic bucket w/rope handles that DH drilled holes in the bottom of to hold the balls and bats. My kids bring their trucks in every time to prevent fading/cracking in the Texas sun - we just make sure we have a "car wash" before they come back in.
By ovulation dates I'm due 08/28 & by sono dates I'm due 08/29. I was 10 days late with both boys so I joined the September DDC. I lurk in August though to see what is going on. There are two things that are getting me antsy this pregnancy - 1) DH has to leave for 2 weeks on September 14th and I'd like the baby to be at least 2 weeks old and 2) I'm so stinking excited to meet my baby girl. With my boys I was "just ready to be done" but this pregnancy has been so...

DS1 would usually only ever cry when he would get the hiccups and he would yell at them. He is 3.5 now and they still make him so angry, but now he says, "Mama, I just need to go lay down in my bed - my hiccups are driving me crazy!" LOL! Baby bean is...
