Good thoughts to all of you trying to convince baby to settle down in a better position! Angela, I can tell where every inch of this LO is, too. MyMary, have you done some visiting on spinningbabies.com? There is a lot of information about belly mapping...it can really help to feel the baby out!
I'm shocked you're still pregnant, too, Mandie. I actually had a dream you were in labor a few nights ago! I was telling my Mom, a former NICU nurse, about you and JenChaffee and she was so impressed that twins *could* gestate that long...and in awe that you still have both of them in there! For your sake I really hope they decide to join the party out here soon!
CrunchyMamatoBe, I'm so glad you get your homebirth! Yes!
Like every other night, I thought last night might be it. I had strong, frequent contractions all day yesterday and woke around 12:45 with a particularly low, sharp one. In my haze I remember thinking and remembering, "THAT'S a contraction." Had a few more so woke up and ate some oatmeal. Laid back down, fell asleep, woke up to more of the same prodromal stuff. It's been going on all morning, too...it has to be close. I better be rewarded with a fast labor for all this misery!
I'm actually due on Wednesday. DD was born by now, so I'm as pregnant as I've ever been. I'm starting to get scared this is going to drag on for two more weeks. Also starting to feel guilty again for DD's sake, bringing another baby in when she still considers herself such a baby. I bought her a dollhouse for Christmas with a family of four - a mama, a dada, a small little girl and an infant. She plays with it and declared the tiny infant doll her.
She makes the infant and mama bathe together, etc. I really hope this transition will be as smooth as possible for her...I just love that little girl.
So, for all my discomfort and guilt I made a giant bowl of chocolate pudding and am going to eat all 4.5 servings myself.
