This is exactly my plan right now! Good to know you made it to 37weeks. I want to carry them as long as I can but pictures of Jaba the hut keep coming to mind!

I started out heavy so the weight gain is a little trickier for me as far as a set number. In fact I have not gained anything and I am still at my prepreggo weight. I read Luke's book and got myself all worried I was not gaining enough but my midwife has looked at my diet (I recorded everything for two weeks for her) and she feels I am eating enough to provide and nourish everyone. I am taking more supplements than I did with my singles - a prenatal, vit C, Calcium/magnesium, Bcomplex combo, and DHA/omegas. Nearer to the end I also will start taking some herbs to get my body ready and things like alfala to help with bleeding.
I also feel like I am as big as I was with the first two already. I just ordered some more materinty clothes cause the belly is getting bigger and bigger and I can't find shirts long enough to cover it!
I do plan to co-sleep. We have a king size bed and I co sleep with both my boys for at least 6 months. I really don't know how to do it any other way! I have a co-sleeper that goes against the bed but they alwas ended up in the bed with me anyway. We will have a crib in our room for later when they start to go longer streches.
