Dannic-Happy Birthday! Glad you finally got the socks and in the right size! Sorry you are still dealing with the yeast and not feeling well. Sorry you had a rough emotional day too!
Pregnova-glad you got a little break and were able to go do something fun!
Springmum-A week ago(when I was 37 weeks) I thought I could handle being pregnant forever. Not quite feeling that way anymore.
Angelorum- I feel like I have a good bit left to do here too, though much of what really has to be done has been take care of. We just decided to change pediatricians so I need to make a phone call on Monday morning about that....I think that's the last really big thing that needs to happen.
Cindy- That's really nice that folks at your daughter's school are offering to do meals! I was so grateful when the ladies group I was in while I was pregnant with DS did mama meals for me after his birth. So nice to not even have to think about defrosting a meal! Sounds like you are getting close!
Micromama-it sounds like you are really close too! Exciting!
Zub-Sorry to hear that you had a rough day. It's not easy when you just feel so exhausted!
AFM-no contractions here yet, but lots of cervical pain. i saw a friend and her mom this evening and her mom was insisting that this baby has dropped since I saw her last Friday. I don't notice too much difference looking in the mirror, but things do feel heavier and lower and the cervical pain/pressure is getting more intense. I also have increased lower back pain, but it doesn't seem like enough to call my midwife over (though she says if I have back pain I should...but it's not been that intense yet). I physically feel very ready to get this baby out quickly, but I'd really like to wait till October 1st at least. I've always thought of this baby as my "October baby". Also DH has a big work commitment on Sunday and no one to cover that particular thing so we need the baby to wait till then. After the 1st though, anytime this baby wants to come would be wonderful! I feel like I had a major hormonal/emotional shift earlier this week and that combined with the physical discomfort has just not been fun at all! I'm crying at the drop of a hat and not handling any kind of stress well at all after having felt very hormonally/emotionally even for my entire third trimester. My midwife seems to think that , that combined with the cervical pain might be a sign that things are getting closer. We'll see.
ETA: Anyone else's older child have regressive tendencies as you are getting closer to having your baby? I expected them once the baby is here, but DS has had several potty accidents at school, and has been a bit more clingy and needy than usual over the past couple of days and I wonder if it's that he senses he's about to not be the only child in the family any more.
