Well, in a matter of less than 12 hours I have suddenly decided I DON'T want baby to come anytime soon! DD and DS went to bed slightly snotty and woke up with full blown sickies. Fever, super snotty noses, croupy, and just plain whiny. DD was sick when DS was born and it was just not fun. Sigh... don't want to deal with two sick kids and a newborn!!

Lizzie- I know what you mean by missing a few days of the thread. I usually bow out after a few days as I just can't keep up ;-) I hope your baby waits until your midwife is back. Our bodies somehow are connected to our feeling of security to birth so hopefully it all works
Becca- I can totally relate to your not wanting a newborn to arrive while your other kiddos are sick. When DD2 was born, DD1 had just started preschool and poor DD2 came down with so many colds and respiratory illnesses in her first 3 mths. It was horrible to deal with breathing problems in a newborn. I'm just hoping that this newborn doesn't bear the same thing. DD2 was a fall baby and there were so many germs around. Most spring/summer months my girls are healthy.
Jr'smom- I bet you've had your baby by now, and I know you aren't going to read this for days but CONGRATS! I hope everything went well!
Liz- I've had that oubic pain for weeks and then I found a stretch/pop that worked wonders. I lay on the bed with both knees up and together and then I slowly lower them together from one side to the other and back. It sometimes hurts but I do it through the pain and that usually leaves me popping something back into place and then I feel so much better.
AFM- I'm still waiting for a baby. More contractions but not a patterns and tons of achy back. And I've lost more plug. I'm getting a massage today and walking for as much as I can stand. DH and I DTD last night in hope that it would help things along but it's just left me VERY achy and with more of a hobble than normal. I think it must have opened up the cervix more and let Hannah move further down. It feels like she's between my knees. Have a great day everyone!
So, nothing new here since that hour long bout of painful contractions. I think it was due to DTD with DH, so it prompted something, but didn't stick apparently. Have had a few contractions since then, but back to painless tightening. I took DS to the local "beach," yesterday for about 2 hours and walked along in the sand, then DH got home early, so I went out for a walk while DS and DH rode their bikes. I didn't last very long due to lower pelvic pain..after we got back I had to sit on the balance ball, and every time I got up had excruitiating pain in my pelvic bones. I'm guessing DD is just making her way down and opening up that pelvis! After a full nights sleep I feel better, but still sore. I really don't want to go past my due date with this baby(due Monday), becuase DS was born on his due date last time and I've always heard 2nd babies come earlier. I know I'll be disappointed if I go past monday! On a positive note, I've gotten everything done that I can get done by myself, and already made DD's birthday cake, got my drinks chilling in the fridge, food ready..Baby can come at any point and I'll be completely ready. Going to go spend the day at my moms house laying by the pool. Should be a nice relaxing day! Oh, and I just got a new book, "Real Food for Mother and Baby" by Nina Planck and an Ipod 4g that I've been wanting for awhile yesterday so I've been able to keep busy with those!
Unfortunately, that's an untrue myth. My mom had me at 35 weeks and my sister at 41. I had my first at 38 weeks and my second at 39 +4. Sooo.... do your best to be patient, but I feel the same way as you. I'm soooo ready to be done.
Oh man holy feeling of let down. I had contraction 20 minutes apart for the whole day yesterday when I was school. Got home and a few hours later nothing!!! I thought our trip to the dentist this morning would help bring it on again. Dear god Mason did not handle it well today. Screamed the whole time and was put in one of those blankets. We opted for the gas b4 anything started since he wheeped the whole yime last time. I coached his dad to give him RR before the appointment or on their way. He assured me he had etc when I got there. It was clear he didn't give him any through the procedure! I went back to his house with Mason to cuddle and sooth him after the appointment and asked him for the RR for Mason. Asshole pretends to get it from the bathroom and is all "oh we must have just ran out. I hate that man he is such an asshole. I don't understand how someone can lie so easily. I also can'y understand why he wouldn't want to have or do what ever he could to help his son out. Still playing dumb to all the shit while I sure up a lawyer.... I can't wait to be in a different state than that failure of a human. Wow!
