I'm just gonna jump in here. :)

The first time he did it I thought, "so that's what that was!"
I have no meals in the freezer or anything planned for after the birth. I think I'll just order out a lot and ask my mom to come cook for me.
. DH is starting a new job in a week and a half, so we will have new insurance. Hopefully it will be just as good as what we have now, and he is getting a raise too, so that is a big relief and couldn't have come at a better time.
So many changes this year! I'm ready for the weather to change. The humidity has been so bad and yesterday it was 100 degrees. Ugh! I have cute maternity sweaters! Hopefully I will get to wear one before giving birth.
That's just when my baby is the most active! When I sit down in bed with a book, "Twitchy" or s hubby calls "The Wiggle Worm", it's an hour or two of non stop acrobatics! I don't have anything to compare to, but seems this one is pretty active to me.
My Mom said the brother under me was like that with his one leg when he slept. He is 30 and still sleeps like that. Lol He was the tallest, and Mom's got short torso - that's where I get it from. She said the last 2 months it was right under her rib and she can still tell you exactly where. Lol
I have really not got much in the freezer yet. I was just thinking about it today actually. I know my MIL, SILs and when she flies up, my Mom will really help a lot so I don't think I'll need much.
Don't lose hope in the sweaters. Here it was in the 90s yesterday and the 70s are predicted the rest of the week.

I feel like a total slacker compared to some of you ladies. I have done NOTHING to prepare to bring this LO home. Since my LO's are so young, I feel like I have been baby mode for three years and I am basically moving over to the next one if that makes sense. In some ways I feel like I am shortchanging this little guy but on the other I feel like everything is already in place so there is no big preparation period.
It is hot here as well and it doesn't really get cold here until late winter. We have a few days here and there but nothing to write home about. I probably won't be able to wear my winter stuff so I am going to put most of it in a garage sale. I am ready for some cool days though hopefully by the time this little one is due we will have some Fall like weather.
Ha! I totally move LO if it's hurting. I have sore spots from Crohns I really don't need elbows and bodies smashing.
Slacker! sounds like anything but! That many little ones is far from slacking!

I am still struggling to get my mind around giving birth, I want it to be a celebration, but my family is pretty much...well, it's a mess. My bil's girlfriend wants to come to the birth but she is super controlling/anxious/OCD and knows everything about everything. I have to say that I have OCD, like offiacially diagnosed, on medication before type of OCD, but this chicks energy drives me batty, I just have to hide. I cannot have her there while I'm in labor. Dh pointed out it would be nice to have someone help with ds but I can't imagine trying to spend time with a newborn and managing her. I mean, she will wake you up to eat a snack, She will sit there are watch you until you eat all the snack. I just ugh. At the same time my stepdad (who is like my dad) is remarrying this month and had specifically not invited any of his fam. One of my sisters told him she'd like to attend and he told her that he really didn't care how she felt. If it were just me, I'd cut ties with him (which makes me so sad), but ds adores him and I feel like I have to do damage control between he and my half siblings. Whatever, I have to let it go.
lol, I should go to a therapist and stop dumping in this thread, sorry everyone!
I love homeschooling my 3 teen/pre teen SILs, but man it makes me tired these days.
Honestly, I would not want the girlfriend there either. That would totally not be relaxing. My 11 yr old SIL said one day, "I can't decide if I want to be there for the birth or not." My sweet reply? "Here, I'll make it easy for you. No. I don't want anyone here that doesn't need to be."
Shoot, internet therapy is GREAT. So long as the person who you're griping about never sees it.....

I don't know, I think my tolerance level is pretty much the same. Hubby and those here agree. My Mother, who is 2000 miles away, told my sister, who is even farther away, that I sure am grouchy these days. LOL Um, no more than usual, which isn't as bad as it used to be. I would think those who are around me would know better than she. This family isn't one to mince words, so I know they would tell me. Hubby would TOTALLY tell me.
