Oh yes very close!!!! I was just posting about it in our weekly thread. Thanks for starting one here. I'm due Aug 27th, my midwife moved my date up from Sept 1 after we worked out a more detailed conception timeline. Today I had more than a few contractions that made me take notice along with runny poops. I have been on my feet packing boxes and moving things all over my property to get ready to close on the house this Monday. its been over a week of this for 6-10hrs a...
Love all the mothering and nursing conversations!! It's nice to have an open conversation that does not end with many people upset or it going too far. Well we have one more day of moving in front if us. We have been moving for over a week!! Seriously!!! It's crazy how big the property is. And how much stuff the 5 of us own. One last day ahead then I get to unpack, I am guessing 30+ boxes into our tiny appartment hopefully before the baby arrives. Ill be 38 weeks on...
Flip flops or anything I can get o and off without bending over
I fell into every hospital breast feeding trap after my first child. The best one was "I can see how much pain your in why don't you just give your babe one bottle of formula to let your breasts rest and then you can try nursing again". Lets just say it took 3 weeks before I found a GREAT lactation specialist. I was pumping like crazy and could no longer get my babe to latch at all. Well basically my ignorance and the hospitals awful advice I never was able to get her back...

I physically have been on my feet for DAYS packing boxes and walking miles in total since we have a huge property.  I...
I just use water at diaper changes in a little spray bottle. As for baths I wait about a week for the first one. Basically until I'm up and about a bit, and just use water. Babes don't really get dirty until they start crawling outside in the dirt or eating solids. I found water cleaned them very nicely and did not strip the natural oils off the skin so they stayed baby soft naturally.
Currently it's the middle of the night and I can't sleep boooo I went to the bathroom an hour ago and now I can't get back to bed since I'm now hungry. Ahhhhh Off to the kitchen to find some food. I soooooo just want to sleep.
My husband and I looking very wind blown today at DD2's 5th birthday party which we had at the local lake beach. I'm 36 weeks, 3 days!! Everyone is getting so close I wonder when we will start seeing labor threads??
This is what we do in our home with the crib. I know many MDC mamas do the same to get more space in the bed for everyone while still giving the little ones a place of their own. It worked AWESOME last...
We did the same thing with our ikea crib. It's set up as a cosleeper right now. Still some work to do to secure it to the bed and get the mattresses equal hight but it seems to work out well.Mrsandmrs- could you explain why the doctors are worried that the babies are different sizes at this point? Also I hope you next week turns out more positively!
