Penny, I'm sorry about the rent situation. Have you had any more contractions?
Sarah, Elodie is so beautiful. I know two of my sister's babies were also born with a nucchal hand. We call them her superman babies.
Thursday, I'm so glad Saoirse waited for daddy to get home! Congratulations and enjoy your little girl!
Midstream, I hope your LO works with your DH's timing! Sending labor vibes your way. LeAnn, I've got some for you too!
Andaluza, you're in my thoughts, I'm sure your probably in baby bliss right now.
AFM, last night I had a dream that I was going into labor and woke up in the middle of the night completely freaked out that B was going to miss it, because in my dream, he wasn't able to get to the airport and home on time. So I started texting him at 3:00 am about my dream and him being able to fly home and worrying that my dream might be an indication that he needed to come home, despite me having no outward signs that labor was imminent. He texted me back in the morning and said that if I said the words, he would fly home, that was around 5ish. I called him when I woke up at 8am and while I was still wavering, thinking I was over reacting, I was also looking up all the flights back. Finally he told me to just make a decision, did I think he needed to come home, or not, because I was just freaking myself out and freaking him out. I told him that I was probably overreacting, and that I had felt nothing except some very, very mild cramping, and only if I laid there and concentrated on it. I guess his senior heard our phono convo, or his side of it, because they decided to send him home, and he ended up waiting at the airport all day on standby, and finally caught the last flight of the day, he was home, and exhausted, by 9:30pm. Cue the rest of the day and after he sent the message he would be coming home, I started having contractions, mild and sporadic, and I've also been losing pieces of my mucus plug, no bloody show. I still don't know if things will progress from here, my sister said that I should just try to go to sleep, and sometimes people's contractions stop overnight, so I did and got a couple of hours of sleep, but I'm still having contractions, nothing major, I'm sleeping in between them and I don't know if they will continue. Everyone in the house is sleeping and the last little round woke me up, so I thought I would come on here. I still haven't packed my birth bag, and I want to take a shower, and I want to eat something, and you know, still sleep because this whole thing could go on for a while. But my contractions are definitely getting a bit stronger, and I've had about three or four of them since I came on to check Mothering, but they don't seem that long yet. So....not sure what to do with myself, but I did remember to plug in the camera battery before I went to sleep...I'll probably try to do all the things I mentioned in between sleeping. I'm really glad that B is home, though, and that my dream was at least more prophetic than me. And good for Q and her timing, she waited till Daddy got home to kick things in to gear, and she "seems" to be complying with his request to arrive this weekend so he can spend 3 weeks with her. We'll see if things continue of if this is just false labor and things stall out.
Sorry this post is so long...I have no one awake to talk these things through with.
