Hey everybody, I'm still here! Out of desperation this morning I tried one last ditch effort and drank some castor oil, but nothing... Grandma left this after noon, and no baby so I'm just not going to worry about it anymore.

However with all the bloody show it can't be long!

Christymama: Be happy with your breasts! Mine haven't changed a bit! I'd LOVE to have some "more", I'm sure DH would too!

so here we are, in the final stretch...I'm feeling overwhelmed today and really needy. I'm uncomfortable and think I'm getting sick AGAIN (i've spent most of this pregnancy with some malady or another--and I NEVER got sick before getting preg). My throat feels scratchy and I'm coughing. Need energy for birth. Waaah.

Wish I was a child again...wish my welfare were somebody else's concern.

Christy, great site, you look like a lot of fun and your kids are BEAUTIFUL. Congrats!

Cristymama: Cute site, great pics of you and your family!

I had a great night of sleep last night, and it was much needed! I've had weeks of insomnia and I've been up by 3:00 am every day for the last week. I finally got to sleep till 6:00, yeah!

I feel better physically and mentally than I did a few weeks ago, a little more relaxed I guess. I sure don't know why.

My sons birthday is on Tuesday so I'm just going to try to switch gears and focus on HIS day right now. I ordered him a spiderman cake, and we're all going to a childrens museum on Saturday-assuming I don't go by then, LOL! It will be a nice day.
I need a distraction!

Have a great day!

Thanks mama's! i am just lernign to use this whole web page thing.. These were just snap shots from here and there. I will get more into it once i really know what I am doing and The baby is here.
ITS APRIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Been thinking of LIsa and Kaylee all night! I Know they are both having thier babies or already had them I should say. I just want to hear about it now! There is a full moon on the 5th ( MOnday) maybe some will go that day!! Maybe you bellafinn!!!! I have noticed a change in my body and the way things feel the past 2 days.. I think my plug is slowly starting to shed loose.. I see some mucus on the tp but nothing to get all excited about.. BUt it has to wiggle out of there some time.. Its suppose to rain here the next few days. We could really use it.. There are two fires already going in the mountains: This should be a intresting year... Well I will check back later mamas..

Today is my due date!!!

but no news :
feeling more pressure down lowand bh but thats it. My doc doesnt like going past 41 weeks so it better happen this week. just told my mom I was in hosp.- April fools joke

went to see eternal sunshine of the spotless mind last night then to italian for eggplant parmigan. too tired and full for sex though- guess you cant do all the wives tales all the time

its really amazing how everyone in society, friends and family etc are just so blasé about babies being born- 'have you had the baby yet?' etc. it just seems so huge an event -that big chubby human coming out of your vagina for goodness sakes!!!! can you tell Im a little nervous?

Welcome to April -I cant believe weve made it!!! And I cant believe with how hard I was trying to keep him in in the first trimester, now Im trying to let him out

have a good day!!!

cute site, Christy!

elsanne and christina...sorry you're both feeling so yucky. having painful gas is the *worst*. I had it the other night and tried using my hypnobirthing techniques to get through it. it didn't make the pain really go away, but i relaxed enough to fall asleep.

wondering about lisa and kaylee....

coco..how was the movie? i really want to see it. my mom will be here Monday. if i haven't had a baby by then, i think dh and i will go see it.

things are on somewhat better terms with dh. it's still touch and go, but we had a good day yesterday. he worked like a madman on the outside of the house...scrubbing skylights, sweeping the roof and decks (we are under a canopy of trees, so lots of leaves), repairing things, etc.

no baby signs here. one bh yesterday, for a grand total of i think three. : maybe she'll sneak up on me!

Well it is our month. Some times it feels like it's gone fast and then sometimes I can't remember NOT being pregnant!

I just had to go to the December mom's thread and read all those post of the mom's just becomming pregnant. I remember so well that first positive pee stick! Then the nerves and such about not wanting to M/C, now we only have DAYS left and it will all be over, well just beginning I guess.

I was just thinking to myself how you start out watching the toilet paper and NOT wanting blood, now I pray for it every day, LOL!!!

Have a good day!

Hey all-
we were down with that yucky stomache flu thing- it worked its way through all of us in different ways. Ds and I got it the least, but I was involved in the care of all the other sickos.

Nothing on the baby front. A few bh here and there, mostly very mild ones, but last night I had 1 contrax that was soooooo painful it kinda got me scared remembering what this could be like. my 2nd was a nightmare, my first was honestly pain free, soooooooo where will #3 be???? Some where in between I suppose. Everyone around me- the other pregnants at the Y have all had their babies, except one who is in labor as we speak.
i am going to get some cloth diapers and a carseat in the morning-- i think it may be time to finish up preparations.

Elsanne-- i so hear what you say about wanting to be the child, I wish to crawl into bed and be cuddled and have someone else worry about the happiness and welfare of the rest of my family. it is a tough job being a mommy. I love my kids but it is so completely full time.
hang in there everyone- love 2 all- maria

Hope you fell better Maria.. I hate being sick.. I never get sick but when I do its a doozy and dh will let me stay in bed and take care of things around here..
Christina my youngest is like that with this baby .. She always says she is going to help take care of him and feed and changehim.. She did say that the poopy can be for daddy that daddy likes poopy.. ( he is the one that wipes her when she goes because being pregnant it makes me sick,,, ) But it is funny! So excited... Who else have we not heard from in awhile.... Wondering who will have thier babies on the full moon?? Dh starts his Maternity Vacation on the 10th I am super excited about that too.. We have so much to get done then....

Iam so bored tonight where is everyone? Iam hoping to go this weekend. Iam so ready to have this baby.I have had a few contractions today but nothing that would dilated me. Iam hoping to hear some more baby stories where are you Lisa Kaylee?

post #20 of 158
Thanks Christy, I am fine. I did not get the sickness like the others did. Ya know those supermom hidden protectors, well, despite all the puke I dealt with, I was really only exhausted and needed some time to myself in bed. i got it and the world is a rosier place!!!

My dd has a show at school tomorrow and then I pland to hit the gym again, I went today after almost a week off and did a pretty good paced three miles. I thought my water was going to burst open there on the eliptical machine lol!!! Honestly, my belly got soooo tight I had to stop at about every 6 minutes, drink a bunch of water, and do some serious deep breathing. Crazy, I live for this shit and it felt absolutely wonderful to be moving my big fat body.

Well, here is hoping my baby comes sometime next week while dd is on vacation- she is in charge of her brother during the birth and if it is in the daytime, I do not want to worry about having to get her home from school. Also, I think with a new baby around the kids will have something to do and maybe even be real nice and peaceful for the week.. One can only dream....

can't wait to hear some stories, they ought to be rolling in soon!!!!!! love 2 all of ya-- happy labor-- maria
